How to Keep the Destructive Dog Occupied

Is your dog chewing up everything he sees? If so, you’re probably desperate for a solution. You’re definitely not alone either. There are many people that come home to find their flowerbeds have been dug up and their shoes torn apart.

You can stop this problem so put any doubts out of your mind now. It’s important to understand why your dog is a chewing or digging. This usually happens because they are bored. Perhaps you are frequently away from your home or are very busy.

Some people will want to consider getting a playmate for the dog. This can keep them busy even when you’re not there to play. Be careful though because the plan may backfire. You might find that you have twice the holes and destruction!

Better yet, you should make sure your dog has something to do. You might place special treats around your yard and give out special toys as entertainment. It’s not hard to find things that will entice your dog right away from doing something bad.

You can get dog toys in many different places. Some locations even have inexpensive dog toys that won’t set you too far back in your bank account. Do keep in mind that the toy must be large and durable enough to prevent a choking hazard. Most dog toys are made this way so you should not substitute dog toys with another kind of toy not made for dogs unless you’re sure it’s safe.

Some dogs are rougher than others so you should make sure it will stand strong against your dog’s teeth. You might wan to invest a little more money getting a tough toy instead of a cheap one that will fall apart. It is also dangerous in that smaller pieces could get stuck in your dog’s

To make things even more enticing you can purchase dog toys that allow you to put a treat inside. The task of getting the treat out will occupy your dog for a longer period. If it’s hot outside you might want to consider getting the kind of dog treat you freeze. Your dog will enjoy playing with it until it thaws.

If money is an issue you can tie two large socks together to make a nice chew and tug of war toy for your dog. These are great and the dog won’t even notice the difference. The only trouble is that they will need someone to play tug of war with so it might not work as well when you’re not home. Also, a thick piece of rope with knots tied in makes a great toy. If you are not home to play tug of war, tie one end of the rope to a post or stair railing and your dog can entertain themselves.

To keep your dog truly interested you might want to rotate the toys every now and then. That way the toys will seem fresh and they won’t get bored as easily.
