Oh the chewing and the nibbles. Puppy teething can always be a tedious, and dreaded time for a pet owner, however, think of the poor pup going through it. Just like a human, their teeth hurt, and they don’t feel well when their teething.
We are currently going through the same issues with Sophee, I’ve tried many toys, and tricks to help sooth her pesky baby teeth.
Some examples are:
Soaking a rope bone in water, and freezing.
Cutting sweet potatoes and freezing them- they don’t last as long I find.
I also found that having a wide variety of toys for her to chew, some of the favourites she leans more towards are
Kong Purple hippo
Nylabones similar to the ones in the image
And the good ole rope bone
She has been fairly good for the most part the occasional correction here and there and she is back on track.
I’ve heard some pretty bad horror stories of teething puppies/ and heavy chewers; we’ve lucked out for the most part, when Bently was a puppy he would always find the white apple iphone cords and chew them, I mean like ALWAYS. Some how if it was on the counter, he would still get his paws on it. . . it was a brutal faze. But he grew out of it fairly quickly, and about 100 iphone cords in we didn’t need to buy another one again until apple decided to change them every two months, am I right?
But do you or someone you know have a brutal chewer story? We’d love to hear about it! Feel free to send a picture of your chewer too if you would like, we’d love to meet them!
Also, always make sure to supervise your puppy when their playing with toys, you never know if they could get a piece off causing a choking hazard.

Well it has been fairly interesting around here the last couple of months; I have a sister.. she looks nothing like me though. But my humans say I have to be nice. So me being a good boy I gave it a shot, and you know what? I just think I might like this sister thing!
The humans call her Sophee; I call her hyper ball of fur! I can’t believe it, I just can’t; she was the size of my head when the humans brought her home… and she is already taller than I am!
We have lots of fun though, however, every once in a while she tries to steal my toys and I steal them back and it just goes on and on, back and forth until I give in. I guess shes pretty funny if you look at it from another perspective.
But it looks like shes here to stay so I’ll just have to share my toy. hmph not to please about that part.
Me, a small dog; enjoys getting outside. The fresh air blowing through my hair, the speed, the friendly waves of humans I have yet to sniff.
This bike seat my human made was absolutely bark-tastic!
We both had so much fun ridding around, even though she was doing all the work, I could tell she was enjoying herself. I myself, enjoyed leaning to one side with my elbow draped over the edge, relaxing, sniffing the air as we blew past all of the trees, and flowers. This is a much better way to get around, and the best part? I do not even need to move!
We Cannot wait for the weather to clear to be able to get back out there for a ride!
An older crocheted doggie jacket I made a while ago from pieces of yarn i had left over. Thought I would throw in a mohawk and all just for kicks, I enjoyed this one, just kind of made it up as I went along.
