Why dogs chew is very important question, and many dog lovers do not know the answers. Because they do not know the answers and , the training process seems very hard. However, training puppies not to chew is actually very easy process. If you follow my simple instructions, you will reach your goal instantly. First, I want to talk about why dogs chew.
Chewing is very common and actually . They mostly chew something for strenghting their jaws and teeth. People are also need to chew to strenght their teeth and jaws. Dogs are the same with people, but they need to chew more. In nature, dogs chew bones all the time, so we need to know that this is a completely natural for them.
Chewing process also clean their teeth. We have toothpaste and toothbrush to clean our teeth as a people, but dogs' nature is very different from us. Their teeth
need frictional force to be cleaned, and they satisfy the need with chewing something.
Baby dogs need to have more attention to their teeth because they change their baby teeth. This process is very hard for baby dogs. Their teeth start to itch, and this is very disturbing time for poor baby dogs. They need to chew something to stop itching. You need to provide them some chewing toys in this period. You should not be angry with them. You need to be patient. Keep in mind that it won't last for long.
The main idea about dog training has 5 steps:
1. Be patient to your dogs
2. Do not be angry with your dogs
3. Do not punish your dogs
4. Give rewards for their good behaviors
5. Repeat these 4 steps all the time
Now let's talk about training dogs not to chew according to these 5 steps. If your dog chew your furniture or something you do not want him to chew, then you should find something else for him to chew freely. It can be chewing toys, or chewing bones. Once you find the material that your dog like to chew, you should encourage him to chew this material.
You should be patient to your dog. Observe your dog carefully. Whenever he tries to chew unwanted material, you should distract his attention, and give him allowed material. When you give him allowed material, you will see that your dog will be very happy with this material, and start to chew it. After some time, he can go back to the unwanted material. Be patient and repeat the step.
Do not angry with your dog. As I said before, he can go back to the unwanted material. When he go back, you should be calm. If you are angry with your dog, it does not help. They are not humanbeings. Their language is very different from us. You should solve your problems with your dog positively.
Do not punish your dog. Your dogs really do not understand the punishment. If your dog try to chew unwanted material, and you punish him for example if you lock him somewhere and do not allow him to go outside. I assure you that he does not understand why you punish him, or what the punishment is.
Give reward to his good behavior. Your dog understand the reward which is right after the good behavior. For this training situaiton, the reward is a allowed chewing material. Whenever you distract your dog's attention while chewing unwanted material, you should give him allowed one as a reward. Be careful
that you should give this reward right after the distraction. It is very important.
Repeat these 4 steps all the time. Finally, you should repeat all these steps until your dog learns
