Chewing
by: Fiona

Dogs chew for many reasons - boredom, lack of exercise, attention, etc.
Make sure your Jack is getting plenty of consistent exercise. Have a variety of toys around and rotate them on a weekly basis. When you are not home crate your Jack and leave him with a Kong filled with biscuits and peanut butter. When you are home you may have to supervisor him for awhile and limit his run of the house. Work on basic commands, especially "drop it". Playing fetch and retrieve and then using a stern voice to say "drop it" can also work on real life situations. Remember to reward him when he does "drop it" with a treat and praise. Also, make sure your floors are clear of any tempting things to nibble on such as shoes and whatnot.
