Keep your home tidy and clear

While your puppy is still learning what they are allowed and not allowed to do, it can be helpful to clear away all potential chew toys that you may not want chewed. Think about shoes, kids toys, precious furniture and anything that your pup could pickup potentially cause harm or choking.

Speak to a veterinarian or behaviourist

Checking in with a professional will help you understand where your dog’s destructive behaviour comes from. It could be an anxiety issue, for example, which can be managed with proper training and/or medication.
