Sometimes it’s a shoe, other times it is a rug or a table leg, but quite a few dog owners are not surprised to come home and see that one of those items has been chewed up.

While it can be advantageous to leave them with a bone or toy to play with, this doesn’t always fix the problem. Books, clothing, shoes and even some small electronic gadgets are things you should try not to leave out, because they might be too much of a temptation. In some cases, persistent chewing indicates certain emotional problems such as boredom or separation anxiety when you’re not home. If this becomes a recurring event, you might need to contact a specialist on dog behavior. When you are leading your dog with a leash, does he try to drag you along?
