As your Berger Blanc Suisse puppy is teething, you might find that they start to develop a habit of chewing on objects around your house. There are a few other reasons why your puppy might be chewing. They could want attention or be bored. They could also chew because they are afraid or suffering from puppy separation anxiety.
Correcting a Chewing Habit
The first step to correcting them before it becomes a bad habit is to quickly teach what is appropriate to chew and what isn’t. At first, don’t give them access to anything you don’t want to be chewed. Keep shoes, trash, books, clothing, and furniture away from them, especially when they’re left alone. It might be a good idea to create a “puppy-proof” play area for them that is devoid of any things that shouldn’t be chewed. You could even buy a chewing deterrent to spray on any gates or kennels to ensure the puppy won’t be tempted to chew on his surroundings.
At the same time, you want to make sure you’re giving them plenty of appropriate alternatives to chew on. These could be things like edible bones or chewing toys. Whatever it is, it should be easily distinguishable from household items and anything you don’t want chewed.
When your Berger Blanc Suisse puppy is inside the house or around things that could be chewed, it’s best to make sure he is supervised. Most importantly, you need to correct your puppy immediately whenever he’s caught doing something he’s not supposed to. Punishing him way after the fact only confuses him and will not help to stop the behavior.
Puppies often resort to chewing when they are bored and have too much energy. A smart way to prevent chewing before it happens is to make sure your puppy is getting plenty of physical and mental exercise.
