Puppies need to explore their world and learn boundaries, and mouthing and chewing are part of that process. Chewing is also essential to the teething process. It helps relieve discomfort and “sets the teeth,” which occurs when the adult teeth are coming in at six to eight months of age. Give your puppy the guidance he needs by providing him with gentle, puppy-friendly chew toys to play with, chew on, and relieve teething pain. This will help him stick to safe, human-approved chewing all the way into adulthood. For more expert info on puppy care, visit Dog 101!
