Whatever you give a baby, the first thing they’ll do is place the object into their mouths. It is one way how babies learn about new things.

Puppies are no different as their sensory are beginning to take shape and since dogs have no arms or fingers, they utilize their mouths as would a human picking up an object and observing and feeling it, a way to explore the new finding.

In fact chewing is natural for your dog. Imagine if your dog lived in the wild, this behavior would be acceptable as their wouldn’t be anyone out there to deter him from chewing on it.

It’s important to remember that as the owner, your job is to teach your puppy how to live in your environment. What is acceptable to chew and what’s not. Chewing on the wrong item can be dangerous to your dog.

So next time your puppy picks up something, depending on the object, don’t be so fast to not deter them, just watch that they don’t choke or are able to hurt themselves buy allowing them time to figure the object out as they’re learning as they grow.
