Destructive Puppy Behavior

Why is it so hard to be a puppy? Because there are so many temptations! We've all been there - the furniture being shredded, your favorite pair of shoes being used as chew toys, even the walls aren't safe from Puppy Destruction! What is a puppy parent to do?

Your puppy needs rules, boundaries and limitations. They aren't going to simply "grow out of it" - a common myth people tell themselves to cope with the disasters they find when they get home. Luckily, there are several things you can do to correct the problem before you no longer have a solid piece of furniture in your home.

Crate Training. The value of crate training cannot be overemphasized. Your puppy will find comfort
having a quiet, den-like place to sleep and you will have the ability to not only stop destructive behavior but also master potty training in record time! Be sure to research proper crate training techniques to avoid causing separation anxiety issues that can be dangerous for your puppy trying to escape from the crate.

Exercise. A tired puppy is a good puppy. You'll need to spend the first few months giving your puppy regular exercise outings several times a day to burn off that energy. This is a great time to teach her how to walk on a leash and play fetch.

Substitution. When your puppy is spending supervised time outside the crate be sure to have toys handy to substitute for the things he is going to try to play with. A squeaky toy is much more interesting than an electrical cord. A tennis ball can distract his attention from your shoes. Take the cue that when he is overjoyed at the abundance of household items that are tempting him it is time to take him out for some vigorous exercise.

We offer puppy visits to let your puppy out for potty and play time during those crucial first few months. Give us a call or schedule online!
