Puppies, Chewing And Natural Chews
Over the last year and half there has been a huge surge in dog ownership as people were spending more and more time at home. Particularly popular has been the introduction of puppies to households across the country with google searches for buying puppies up over 115% and prices for certain breeds reaching record highs. If you're one of the lucky people to have welcomed a new furry friend to your life you will by now have noticed their propensity for chewing things. Whether it's one of your shoes, a particularly tasty sofa or, more appropriately, a delicious all natural chew from Natural Cornish Pet Shop, your puppy doesn't just love to chew; it's an essential part of keeping them healthy too.
Why Do Puppies Chew?
One of the main reasons that puppies chew is to investigate their environment, puppies are not able to pick things up or touch them with hands like we can and so their mouth becomes their primary exploration aid. Picking up, carrying, tasting and chewing allows your dog to discover the world around them and build up an understanding of their surroundings. Another primary motivation for your puppy to get their teeth into something is their dental health. Between the ages of four and seven months, dogs go through teething, where they lose their puppy teeth and grow in their adult set. Chewing helps with the removal of the baby teeth and helps to welcome in the adult set by keeping the gums healthy and massaged as they munch. After the new teeth have come in, between seven and twelve months, your dogs could experience high levels of discomfort as the new teeth settle into the jawbone. Chewing can help with this massively providing relief whilst maintaining the healthiest of gums and teeth. Adolescent dogs are also full of energy and are easily bored and bestowing a delicious wholesome chew can help to give your dog a great bit of stimulation that not only keeps them busy but is good for them too. Many of the chews available at Natural Cornish Pet are not just helpful for keeping your dogs mouth healthy and their brains firing but can act as a great dietary supplement to boot. With chews containing everything from dietary fibre and heart healthy fats to brilliant vitamins and perfect proteins our chews are not just a treat for the teeth.
