How do I teach a pup what to chew?

Redirect a Puppy's Chewing

It's natural for a puppy to want to chew everything in sight. He's learning about his world by testing things in his mouth and he's also going through teething. To keep your home free from puppy teeth marks, provide your puppy with plenty of chew toys and keep a close eye on his activities. If you catch him chewing on something he shouldn't, immediately correct him with a firm tone of voice. Then redirect him to something that he can chew on, like a squeaky toy or rubber bone.
