How to Stop Puppy Chewing Furniture

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.

Hi Everyone,My name is Debra and I’ve been a pet lover for as long as I can remember! I’ve had dogs and cats all my life, beginning with our family’s first pet, a poodle puppy named Pepi (try saying that three times fast!) we got when I was in about fourth grade. He brought so much joy to our family – he made me an animal lover! I’m 47 now and I’ve had lots of pets over the years. Every time a pet passes away, I find I’m so guilt stricken that I swear I’ll never get another. Then of course…I suddenly find myself cuddling yet another little furry friend. I just can’t say no!Unfortunately, part of being a pet owner is having to pay for their medical expenses. I have had thousands of dollar’s worth of pet expenses over the years – not just vet bills, but medications. I’ve spent so much time looking for the BEST prices on pet supplies, that I wanted to make the sites I’ve had the best luck with available to others. And of course it’s not just medical supplies – I’m also guilty of spending tons of money on the fun stuff too! My current pet, a miniature doxy named Taz, has an entire wardrobe, two baskets full of toys and at least four doggie beds!MOST IMPORTANT: You’ll see on my home page that this website donates a portion of all sales to the ASPCA and other pet charities. I’ve donated to various pet charities for years and years. There have been times I could only donate $5 here and there, and other times when I’ve been financially able to donate more. But it’s always been a priority to give as much as I can to help animals. So I decided to start this website as a way to give MORE, via the commissions I make from sales from this website. I am in the process of creating a spreadsheet, which I will make available on this website, containing the names of all pet charities this website is donating to, along with a column for each charity showing how much money has been donated to date. Stay tuned for that – I’m so excited and hopeful we’ll have huge numbers! I really want to make a difference for all the animals who so desperately need our help.Thanks so much for visiting my website and please, if you’d like to leave feedback or give me ideas on how I can make this website better, comment down below. I welcome suggestions! :)Sincerely,Debra
