Puppies enjoy chewing on things, and if you don’t watch them closely, your new puppy could do something to damage something in your home, or even worse, themselves.
Puppies mainly like to chew on anything that feels good on the teeth, which means your soft cords and chewy soled shoes will become prime targets. While most puppies outgrow this behavior within a month or so, you still want to make sure that you keep shoes out of reach and cords tied up (spray vinegar on them to make them taste nasty) so your new puppy can’t get to them.
Give your puppy safe toys, or toys designed for dogs. If you give your puppy an old shoe or stuffed animal, your intentions may be pure, but your puppy could get the wrong idea. To them, all shoes and stuffed animals look the same, so limit your puppy’s play to toys safe for them to chew on in your home.
