How to stop your dog from chewing your possessions

How to stop your dog from chewing your possessions

July 01, 2024

Have you ever come home to a hole in the wall, or your furniture torn to shreds, stuffing scattered everywhere like confetti?

Have you ever had to sport mismatched socks or tattered footwear?

If you have, you’re not alone! 

There’s no doubt about it, dogs and puppies are hardwired to chew. They just love it. But is there anything you can do to help stop this behaviour? Yes, there is, and the Dog Doctors Anti-Chew Spray is the place to start.

First, let’s have a look at why your dog chews.

  1. For puppies, chewing is a way to relieve the pain of new teeth. Much like human infants, puppies go through a stage when they lose their baby teeth and then experience discomfort as their adult teeth come through. For older dogs it’s how they keep their jaws strong and their teeth healthy.
  1. When dogs play, they just love to bite objects and carry them around in their mouths. If they are new to a house, it’s a way to explore their new environment and unfortunately, they will be inclined to chew on anything and everything. 
  1. If a dog doesn’t get enough exercise and stimulation, they get bored, and chewing can help to release their pent-up energy.
  1. A dog suffering from separation anxiety can get distressed and agitated and they will chew on anything.
  1. Dogs which are on a calorie restricted diet will chew or gnaw at objects because they are looking for food.

So, what can you do about your destructive pooch before you run out of furniture and clothes? Well, the Dog Doctors Anti-Chew Spray will work wonders to help bring your dog’s behaviour under control.

It is so easy to use, simply spray on any object your pooch takes a liking to and watch the transformation into a well behaved furbaby.

There are just 3 all natural ingredients: deionised water, citric acid and a bittering agent.

Deionised water has had all its mineral ions such as sodium, iron, calcium, copper, chloride and sulphate removed. It contains no chemicals or harmful toxins. In fact, it is so clean and safe it is used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries where bacteria free water is an absolute must. As a pure water it will assume the chemistry of whatever ingredients are added to it which in this case are citric acid and the bittering agent.

These three substances combine to make a bad tasting, but harmless liquid which will deter your dog from chewing. Dogs hate anything with a sour taste and these ingredients will stop your pooch in its tracks. Dogs taste whatever they are chewing on but as soon as they get a lick of this spray they’ll walk away in disgust.

The Dog Doctors Anti-Chew Spray is not only great for teething puppies and older dogs but can also be sprayed on wounds and dressings to deter licking and nibbling. It is non-toxic, biodegradable and safe to use on many different materials and is suitable for all breeds and sizes of dogs.

And don’t forget, there are other ways you can help with your dog’s destructive behaviour. Encourage healthy chewing habits by providing appropriate toys. Make sure they are safe and non-toxic, and suitable for your size of dog. A bored dog will chew, so make sure they have plenty of exercise and time to play. Feed them a good, healthy diet and include plenty of appropriate fruits and vegetables.
