What can my puppy chew?

What can my puppy chew?

Puppies love to chew, but you only want them to chew on the right things! Here are some suggestions that might just save your slippers…

Why does my puppy want to chew everything?

Once your puppy starts teething, they will naturally want to chew to try and ease the soreness in their mouths. However, it’s not only teething that makes puppies like to chew. It also makes them feel relaxed as the action of chewing releases natural endorphins.

Help your puppy chew safely

Chewing is a natural behaviour, so you must give your puppy plenty of safe chewing options. If your puppy is on a raw food diet, you can provide raw bones as a treat (never give cooked bones, as they can

If your dog is not on a raw food diet, there’s a wide range of vegetable or natural skin-based chews available.

You can also try stuffing a toy, such as a Kong, with your puppy’s food to provide some longer-lasting chewing relief as well as some great mental stimulation. Try freezing some of your puppy’s food overnight – this will also give them a lovely cold treat to relieve those sore gums.
