Your Puppy Begins Teething
One thing to note is that your puppies teeth are also growing and just like a baby, the puppy will feel these emerging teeth and will have the urge to simply test them out. Your puppy will begin to nip, bite and chew. If it was his food he/she was nipping at it wouldn't be so bad, but a teething pup will bite and chew almost anything its gets its little mouth on. Your puppy will chew on clothing, carpet, sofa, kids toys and even furniture. They will continue to nip and chew on items simply because they are teething and will feel a bit of pain and discomfort during the process and the only way to actually ease this feeling is by chewing.
This is one of your teething pups favorite chewing items. Your teething pup will have a blast with everyone's slippers left in its reach. The thing about this is many pup owners will allow the teething pup to chew on old slippers but this is actually not good. As the puppy grows, he/she will think it is ok to chew on shoes and slippers. You should always take away stuff that you don't want your puppy to be accustomed to chewing and biting on.
Buy Chew-able or Teething Toys For Your Puppy
The best thing to do when your puppy begins teething, biting and chewing is to get the puppy some chew able toys. Don't get those breakable cheap toys that once your puppy begins to test his jaw power it simple fumbles and something breaks off and ends up being lodged in your puppies throat. Acquire toys that are well-made, quality toys which are safe, sturdy and tons of fun for your pup too. When also picking chew-able puppy toys ensure that you get the right size toy. You can choose from soft chew-able to hard chew-able to edible toys. The choice is yours. Once you give the puppy enough things to chew and nip on, he will still try after your slippers but just direct him to his chew able toys.
Puppy Teeth Are Not Permanent
If you thought your puppies teeth were permanent you have that wrong. Just like human babies, puppies will eventually shed those tiny puppy teeth for stronger and more sturdy adult dog teeth.
