Why Do Dogs Like To Chew?
Dogs like to chew for several reasons. Puppies like to chew to ease the pain of new teeth coming in. Older dogs are motivated by natural behaviors that serve to keep their teeth clean and jaws strong. Chewing is also a behavior that relieves boredom or anxiety and even expresses frustration.
Excessive chewing is different than normal chewing. Excessive chewing can be destructive to your house and require behavior modifications. Things like fabric sucking, separation anxiety, and hunger can cause your dog to destructively chew things around your house. For more information on how to correct your dog's excessive and destructive chewing, reach out to a dog behavioral specialist.
