In this video, we’ll talk about the reasons why puppies chew furniture, and also go over a list of ways you can get a puppy to stop chewing furniture. I’ll provide a lot of good information and tips here, and I’ll also refer you to a puppy training program for more advanced help. Thanks for watching! Debra
The best way to learn how to stop a puppy from chewing furniture, is to first understand why they’re doing it. Puppies chew for a variety of reasons, many of which are discussed in the video above. Most of the time simply providing an alternative, such as puppy toys, and continuously redirecting the puppy toward his own toys will do the trick to stop the puppy from chewing. But destructive chewing can get worse if it’s not addressed early on.
Puppies Chewing Can Be Dangerous
As I discussed in the video, puppies chewing furniture can be dangerous. The puppy can swallow parts of whatever he’s chewing, and it can be toxic (such as in the case of certain plants), or cause choking (such as tiny pieces of things breaking off and being swallowed) – and sometimes a puppy can require stomach surgery if they swallow something particularly harmful. Not to mention the dangers of electrical cords and household cleaners and chemicals.
Puppy Chewing Could Be a Symptom of Something Serious
Again, as discussed in the video, puppies chewing excessively can be an indicator of a serious medical issue. Puppies with gastrointestinal issues will chew grass, plants, or other items in an attempt to induce vomiting. Puppies will also chew furniture and other items if they’re experiencing a vitamin deficiency, are hungry, or are suffering from malnutrition or starvation. Another cause may be anxiety or separation anxiety, a serious issue that can escalate to dangerous levels if left untreated. You can watch my video about separation anxiety HERE.
I Hope This Has Helped You!
I hope the information in this article and the video above have been helpful to you in figuring out why your puppy is chewing furniture, and also ways to get him to stop. And please, get the professional dog training help mentioned in the video from The Online Dog Trainer and seek advice from your veterinarian if your puppy’s chewing persists. Thanks so much for visiting. Debra
In this video, we’ll discuss dog and puppy crate training, what kind of crate you should buy, step-by-step crate training instructions, a link to get crate training from a professional dog trainer, and safety precautions regarding crate training.
Some people don’t agree with crates for dogs and puppies, and I agree it isn’t a good idea IF the crate is being used in the wrong way. Crates, for example, should never be used as punishment, and they should not be used as a babysitter for the dog. Nor should they be used as a substitute for dog training. In other words, you shouldn’t put your dog in a crate all the time because he’ll pee in the house, destroy things, or because you don’t want to be bothered with him, etc. Crate training serves a purpose, and once that purpose is accomplished, the dog should no longer be locked in a crate
Using a Crate to Train a Puppy
The most common use for crate training is housebreaking a new puppy. A crate can be very effective because dogs instinctively don’t like to pee where they sleep. So if the puppy is in a crate, it’ll help to make him wait to pee until he’s outside. But again, once the housebreaking is accomplished, the puppy shouldn’t have to be locked inside the crate anymore. Same goes for when the puppy can be trusted in the house and not get into things, destroy things, etc.
The Crate Should Be Your Dog’s “Refuge”
The crate shouldn’t be used for punishment, as a babysitter, or as a prison. It should become a place where your dog likes to be. It should be his “safe” place. It should be the place where he can relax, nap, play with his toys, chew on his bones. It should be a place where they can be placed, say, if a plumber comes over, or where the dog can go hide when company is over or if the house is getting too loud. The crate should always be a safe, enjoyable, comfortable place for your dog to be.
Crate Training Takes Time and Patience
I hope the step-by-step instructions in the video above have helped you to know exactly how to crate train your dog or puppy so that it’s an enjoyable experience for both of you. Please feel free to comment below if you have more crate training tips, or if you have questions. I’ll reply! Debra 🙂
In this video, I’ll give you good advice about taking your dog on a vacation and include tips for traveling with a dog. There’s a lot of info in this video – stick with me and watch the whole thing, because there’s likely to be stuff you didn’t think of! Thanks for watching. Debra 🙂
There’s lots to consider anytime you’re taking your dog anywhere – whether it’s on vacation, on a weekend trip, camping – or even just on an outing for the day. The most important thing is that you consider your dog’s comfort and safety. You have to consider, for example, what you’ll be doing on the trip or vacation and whether your dog is going to be able to join you on those activities – or if they’re just going to be stuck alone in the hotel the whole trip. You also have to consider many (many!) safety concerns involved with traveling with pets.
Is This Beneficial to the Dog?
You have to consider whether you’re just taking your dog with you because you feel guilty leaving him home alone or boarding him, or if the dog is actually going to enjoy the vacation or the outing. Will you be doing activities that the dog will enjoy? Will the dog be safe, both traveling to the destination and while he’s there? And one of the biggest concerns, in my opinion, is Will The Dog Be Scared On This Trip? The truth is, most dogs don’t travel well. A lot of dogs don’t travel well in the car. A lot of dogs don’t walk well on a leash. A lot of dogs don’t stay with their owners and will run away. Many dogs are not ok with being left in a hotel room (most are upset in a hotel even when their owner is in the room with them). Dogs can get upset, nauceous, sick…you have to consider all of this.
I Hope This Has Helped
I hope you got good advice in the video at the top of this article, and I hope you’ll continue to check out articles and videos online to educate yourself about traveling with your dog. And I’m so glad you’re doing this – that you care enough about your precious pooch to make sure you know what you’re doing if you’re considering taking him with you on a vacation or trip. You’re a good dog parent! 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting. Debra

Doggy Dan, Professional Dog Trainer and Behavioral Specialist, and owner of the dog training website, The Online Dog Trainer, has created a step-by-step puppy training video series called, Project Moses. In this series, Doggy Dan films the training of his new Beagle puppy, Moses, from the time he picks him up from from the shelter at eight weeks old, all the way up to when Moses turns one year old. There’s no better way to learn how to train a puppy than to actually watch a professional dog trainer train HIS puppy! I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks for watching! Debra 🙂
The best method, in my opinion, for learning how to train a puppy is to seek the help of a professional dog trainer. And even better than that, is to be able to actually watch a professional dog trainer and behavioral specialist train his own puppy.
That’s what you’ll get when you sign up for Doggy Dan’s puppy training program on his dog training website, The Online Dog Trainer. Doggy Dan shares his full video series where you get to watch him train his new puppy, Moses, from 8 weeks old to 1 year old. And as if that’s not amazing enough, Doggy Dan also has even more training on the website, including a Puppy Problems section, where you can view videos of Doggy Dan addressing specific puppy training and behavioral issues.
It’s Only $1 to Try
Doggy Dan offers a 3-day, $1 trial of his website. And it’s not just a “just a peak” offer – for the $1, you get access to EVERYTHING on the website for 3 days.

I love Doggy Dan. And I love what he does for dog owners. And I love the training he’s making available to absolutely everyone so that we can have happy, content and joyful puppies and dogs. I hope you’ll check it out! Debra 🙂
In this video on how to control dog behavior, I’ll be telling you about the dog training website, The Online Dog Trainer, created by Professional Dog Trainer and Behavioral Specialist, Doggy Dan. Throughout the site, Doggy Dan refers often to, “Doggy Dan’s 5 Golden Rules.” These five rules form the foundation of his training methods. They are the underlying principles of how to control dog behavior. Doggy Dan’s training methods are far more effective than those of other trainers because Doggy Dan teaches owners how to get to the root cause of the behavioral problem to solve it – and that is something that very few trainers do.
Doggy Dan gives you a 3-day, $1 trial of his website so you can sign up, pay $1, and have three full days to watch as many of his training videos as you like. You’re not obligated for any more than that!
The best Beagle puppy training program is called, “Project Moses.” It was created by professional dog trainer, Doggy Dan for his dog training website, The Online Dog Trainer.You can read my review of The Online Dog Trainer HERE.
For people wanting to train a puppy, nothing compares to this. Nothing.
Take a look at this sneak-peak video of Doggy Dan and Moses in action!
So How Do I Train My Puppy?
Well, the great news is that it’s not complicated, especially with the help of Doggy Dan’s The Online Dog Trainervideo website.One of the latest and most exciting additions to the website is Project Moses. For anyone who has a new puppy, this is a must. In this part of the site, Doggy Dan has taken an adorable new puppy named Moses and videoed every stage of his training from eight weeks old right through to one year old, and those videos are all available on the site. It’s so fun and exciting to watch. You can see Moses learning all of the commands, and growing into quite an amazing dog. This project in itself is such an incredible concept, that it could be the only training he offers and it would still be priceless.
Dog Obedience Classes
Before you get hung up on going to dog obedience classes to learn how to achieve popular doggie tricks to impress your friends and family…honestly…we spend so much time and effort focusing on how to do commands such as sit and stay but rarely focus on the really important stuff. Think about it – has a dog ever been put to sleep (yes, I am talking about euthanization) because they didn’t do a proper sit? Or because their down command was a bit slow? Or because they didn’t stay? Of course not. Yet that’s what we all learn at puppy school!
The important stuff, like handling aggression, for example, aren’t taught at dog obedience classes. More dogs are put to sleep for aggression, barking, growling, and challenging than for any other reason. There is nothing more dangerous than an out of control dog, pulling you along on the leash, ignoring you when you call them. Never mind the danger to themselves, children, neighbors, strangers, or around cars and other dogs.
Learning how to train a puppy is a safety issue – for you, for your family, for people around you, and for the puppy.
Characteristics of a Perfect Dog
Most people’s idea of a perfect dog would include all of the following five behaviors:
Calm around all animals, including other dogs.
Friendly to people, including children.
Relaxed and obedient at home.
Always comes when called.
Walks nicely on a leash.
You Can Achieve All 5 of These!
Go to The Online Dog Trainer website and check it out! There’s just no better way to learn how to train your puppy than to watch a professional dog trainer trainer doing it week after week, with a puppy of his own! And please, let me know how you make out and what you think of Doggy Dan! Debra
