Dog Problems and Solutions

Destructive Chewing

Although you may never know exactly why your dog has suddenly decided to destroy your laptop, cell phone, and every remote in the house, it may comfort you to know that there is no shortage of possible reasons. 

How to Prevent Dog Dental Issues

Plaque forms naturally after eating and can easily be removed by brushing. When not removed regularly, however, it can harden into tartar, which requires professional dental care. Periodontal disease occurs when plaque and tartar spread underneath the gum line. Bacteria from periodontal disease can then travel through the circulatory system and cause liver, kidney, and heart damage.

Excess Energy, Jumping Up, or Boredom

Nylabone offers many occupying solutions for day-to-day life with your dog. While nothing replaces your love and companionship, there are many moments where you want to give your dog a short break from the commotion. Nylabone occupying edible chews allow your dog to have a snack while helping prevent undesirable behavior. 

Inappropriate Chewing

To prevent Fido from chewing you out of house and home, stimulate him both mentally and physically—interactive toys and/or toys meant for determined, active chewers or moderate chewers, like Nylabone, are the perfect solution for a happy home. 


Bad Behavior

A puppy problem behavior is a behavior that can be annoying or potentially harmful. It’s a lot easier to address these problems now rather than later. The more chances that your puppy has to practice undesirable behaviors, the more ingrained they will become.

Puppy Teething

By four or five months of age, your puppy will begin to teethe. Chewing helps to relieve the pain and pressure that comes along with teething, and in fact, chewing is really the only thing puppies can do to help lessen the discomfort. Many puppies teethe until they are 9 to 12 months old!

Oral Disease in Dogs

Preventive dental care can reduce the risk of your pet developing periodontal disease, helping to ensure a longer, healthier life.

Food Allergies in Dogs

It seems that allergies are becoming more and more common in dogs, and foods are one of the main triggers. With so many types of foods and treats out there, you have to read the labels to understand exactly what you’re feeding your furry friend.

Dog Anxiety and Stress

Like humans, dogs have personalities, and—as with people—some dogs are prone to stress and anxiety. This is especially common in dogs who are adopted. Occupying your dog helps to keep him both mentally and physically stimulated, leaving him less stressed-out, and a less stressed-out dog is less inclined to destroy things in your house.
