[email protected] Have you noticed some of the new dog chews coming out in stores are wood based? I haven't investigated those but wonder if they could teach bad habits when it comes to wood.

Yes I have seen those wood based dog chews I never got one because I was suspicious of what they were really made of. These two dogs I have now are frustrating beyond words with eating crap when we are in the yard or on walks I have to keep watch on them constantly when they are outside!! I take them on long walks at a local farm let them run loose to get their exercise and its a constant fight with eating stuff! They are fond of corn shucks and love to play keep away with them but then it goes to eating them and I have to keep them moving so they don't have time to lay there and eat them because it leads to puking later! I can't put mulch in my yard either same reason and if they don't get the corn shucks its anything else that woody in nature. They don't touch the corn cobs which I know are dangerous but anything else is game. I wonder if they are part termite? I have never had dogs do this this bad ever I think one taught the other and now that's the way we roll! The Vet suggested muzzling them when walking and I don't want to do that at all people already are scared of them for no reason they love people but they are garbage guts!

[email protected] yes i am suspicious of the wood chews too, how to the differentiate of what wood is ok to chew and what is not. Mine are pretty good as pups I didn't allow them to grab things off the ground when walking, just always took away. Kai the boxer is very good the poodle will still grab at a bush or weeds in the grass. I think because he sees me pluck weeds out he tries to help so we can get back to play. lol

They are getting better as they get older but I tell you this has been so frustrating!!! This is mostly a problem when they are off leash and if they are being too bad I just put them on a leash to finish the walk. I swear though I have never had dogs this bad about that. I worry all the time they are going to ingest some toxic plant or mushroom so I have to keep a close watch.

Your puppy is entering the dreaded teenage stage. During this stage (6-18months) they test their boundaries and your patience, lol. Part of it is absolute boredom and the other part is typical acting out teen

All I can recommend is strict boundaries, and crating whenever you can’t keep an eye on him. Some people choose the tether to them approach as well. Make sure he is getting plenty of exercise and mental stimulation.

You can purchase snuggle mats and hide treats in them. Toys that make them use their minds to figure out how to access the rewards. Some people use muffin trays with hidden treats and toys in them or pop bottles on a dowel that they need to figure how to flip upside down to get a few pieces of kibble.

My point is , a tired puppy is a well behaved puppy

I have a friend who's boxer was playing with one of those pop bottle toys (plastic bottle inside) and she cut her gum so badly she lost her canine so I will not let my dogs play with anything like that! I do exercise my dogs a lot and my young male still gets in trouble I know this too will pass.

Like with most dog toys, close supervision is always recommended. I know dogs who have choked on balls, gotten their jaws stuck in Kongs etc.

I have found myself examing a lot of toys before I bring them home usually their strong jaws will crush the squeaker in just about anything that's usually the end of that! I don't give bones but I do give Nyla bones and Benebones they enjoy laying around chewing on those I do not use rawhide or pig ears two of my dogs got those kind of chews wet enough to try to swallow them whole and I ended up digging them out of their mouths before they choked! I did find an edible chew its called a No hide its made out of rice flour with flavoring added they really love those but they are expensive and my dogs will eat those in about an hour. They really love anything that's loud too like a ball that makes noise anything loud is the favorite.
