Destructiveness or Teething: Diagnosing Your Dogs Excessive Chewing

There’s nothing more disappointing than walking in the house and seeing your favorite pair of shoes somewhere they shouldn’t be – in your dog’s mouth. Hopefully, this is the only item the dog got a hold of while you were away. Your first instinct might be to discipline your dog, but before you do that, it’s important for you to understand why your dog is chewing on things in the first place.

While all dogs and puppies go through chewing phases, it’s important for pet owners to remember that this behavior is, in fact, natural. Chewing help dogs clean their teeth and keep their gums healthy, and is also a way to relieve stress, anxiety, and frustration – like a therapy session. Nonetheless, chewing the wrong household items can be extremely harmful to the dog and result in chipped teeth, infected gums, or blockage in the windpipe, stopping them from breathing.

So, “Why does my dog chew on everything in sight?” is a great question that doesn’t necessarily have a black and white answer. But if you’re tired of finding your shoes covered in saliva and picking up pieces of fabric, sit back, relax, and consider the following problems your furry friend could be going through:

Separation Anxiety

When it comes to dogs and their bad habits, most complaints from pet owners occurs when the animal is left in the house alone. Experts have labeled this behavior as separation anxiety. Dogs don’t understand why their owners leave the house all day to go to work, they just know it makes them sad.

How to Trim a Dog’s Nails

how to clip dog's nails

Nail trimming is one owner expense that can easily be avoided and performed in the comfort of a dog’s own home. Unlike humans, most dogs do not enjoy receiving a pedicure, especially from a stranger. Many dogs are more comfortable when their owners perform the trimming, yet many owners are uncomfortable with the task. The following is a guide on the type of nail trimmers available, and the proper way to clip a dog’s nails.

A dog should have his or her nails trimmed when the nails first start to touch the floor. Therefore, if you can hear your dog clicking and clacking across the hardwood floor, the nails are too long. A natural way to keep your dog’s nails from becoming overgrown is by going for regular walks on cement; the rough surface will grind down the nails naturally. However, for dogs used to soft surfaces or those that are light on their feet, regular trimmings are necessary.

Pets Do Their Own Pest Control

dog pest control

When we think of pest control, we often associate it with pesticides and chemicals being sprayed round. Or maybe the use of mouse traps and bait to get rid of the pest problem. Most pest control treatments involve the inspection, extermination and aftercare for the entire pest infestation.

But in our modern world more and more of us are turning to the more natural methods. The methods that don’t involve chemicals or even the killing of any pests.

This is where your pets could come in handy. They could do the dirty work for you. Think about your pets. Animals like cats, dogs and birds are instinctive predators, who will happily sniff out a rodent problem and can even be trained to detect insects too.

Having your pets doing your pest control won’t be a complete control method to a pest infestation. However if you are trying to do your own pest control in an area like Hornchurch that has a lot of rodents, your pets can definitely help you to keep the population of mice down.
