Ok, so last week Brophy turned 10 months. For some reason it seems as if he is chewing more than EVER :uhoh: He has gotten through his "indestructible" leash, has started to chew up anything he may find on the floor that I have missed while cleaning, and it just seems like he's chewing more in general. Is this a normal thing, and if it is should it be passing soon?? He's tearing through toys sooner than ever! Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Also, what toys are sustainable for a hearty chomper?? Thanks so much!

Normal

I think this is completely normal give his age.

I would keep anything you don't want him to chew or is dangerous for him OUT OF REACH..

MY garbage can in the kitchen is in the cabinet under the sink. My bathroom wastebaskets are emptied daily so they don't chew on anything.

I would keep Brophy in a crate when you can't watch him every minute.

Sure may others will offer good pointers!!

I googled How to stop your puppy from chewing:

I am in the same boat - Moose is 11 months and will grab anything within reach and try to crew/eat it including socks, napkins, papers and more recently rocks! Keeping a close eye on my trouble maker....
