Saving the Slippers - Training the Companion Dog 2 – Behavior Problems

If you don’t want your dog to chew your slippers, you have to show them what to chew.  A treat-filled chewtoy will be much more appealing to a dog then any slippers.

Train Your Puppy to Settle Down

Avoid excessive barking, chewing and digging by teaching your puppy to enjoy being home alone, settling down in their doggy den with some stuffed chewtoys.

Home Alone

All owners find it occasionally necessary to leave their puppydog at home alone. So before leaving your puppy for long periods, you should teach him how to amuse himself appropriately when left alone, such as by chewing stuffed chewtoys, and learning how to enjoy his own company without becoming anxious or stressed. A dog is a highly social animal and therefore requires adequate preparation for spending some of his time in social isolation and solitary confinement.

To teach your puppy how to settle down calmly and quietly when you are absent, start by teaching him to settle down with a chewtoy at times when you are present.
