Chew toys train dogs to chew. Chewing is a habit, just like everything else in training. We form good habits and avoid the bad. If you don't want a dog that chews up everything, including birds, sheds, bumpers, chairs, shoes, etc... Then don't give your dog chews, bones, or toys for them to chew on!
It's very simple... and something that seems to be extremely hard for folks to resist. By giving your dog the opportunity to chew things up, they will develop the bad habit of chewing. It is much harder to train out this habit than to not let it form in the first place!
thanks for tuning in and keep the questions and feedback coming.
Also, a HUGE THANK YOU to the Turnpike Troubadours for allowing us to use a snippet from one of our all-time favorite songs The Bird Hunter. Make sure to check out their music, they are a favorite of ours.
