Firstly, chewing is totally normal behaviour for dogs in general but especially for puppies. They’re constantly learning about the world by watching, listening, playing, interacting with other dogs and people as well as chewing new objects they find. Chewing also soothes discomfort of teething on sensitive gums as a puppy’s adult teeth grow in. During this period, it’s wise to teach puppies what is appropriate to chew by providing plenty of stimulating dog toys, whilst preventing access to objects like shoes.
