Maybe you have a new puppy who chews or gnaws on everything in site? Typical right? Yes, but it's also not necessary. Or maybe you have a grown dog that still chews everything. This can get rather expensive.
Puppies chew initially because of teething but very rapidly they chew because they've LEARNED to chew your stuff. Adult dogs will chew because they're bored and also because they too have LEARNED to chew your stuff.
The best way to not have a dog that chews is to teach an alternative behavior from the very beginning of your dog's life with you.
