Things for your puppy to chew

Chewing is an important behaviour for dogs and puppies and it should be encouraged – but only on the right things!

Why do puppies like to chew?

Chewing releases natural endorphins which promotes relaxation and calmness. It can also help relieve sore mouths from puppy teething.

What can my puppy chew safely?

Stuffing toys with your dog’s regular food can help provide a satisfying meal through chewing and releasing of the food, and even freezing the food overnight can make for a longer-lasting treat and relief for sore gums. Raw (not cooked) bones, providing your dog is already fed a raw diet, can make a delicious and mentally stimulating treat whilst for non-raw fed dogs, natural skin and vegetable chews are also widely available.
