a simple video to show you How To Stop A Dog From Chewing...
This is a simple and calm technique on how to stop a dog from chewing – brought to you by Doggy Dan, the online dog trainer, who I think is great. By simply removing the object they are focused on and giving them one that they are allowed to chew, their energy is redirected, not stopped…
Dogs love chewing things, it’s natural and they love to do it, so they need to be shown the things they are allowed to touch and those they are not – like your sofa, or your shoes!
If it’s a habit for your dog, then you may need to keep repeating this process outlined in the video, by showing calm and consistent consequences of action. If they do keep repeating the behaviour then you may need to isolate them for a few minutes so they get the message. Remember this is done calmly (not with aggression) and without speaking to them.
