Some dogs can chew through a nylon leash, especially the really thin kind.

Of course, some dogs can chew through leather leashes too, but not as fast or as easily.

That's actually one negative side to leather: A lot of dogs like to chew leather (although many will chew nylon as well).

The leather itself is unlikely to be toxic to your dog or poisonous in any way. However I can remember a case of toxicity due to the dye which was used to colour a leather lead, these were cheap leads imported from Asia somewhere and I suppose your belt could have been coloured.

Why do dogs eat leather? Leather is attractive to dogs because it offers them something to try their teeth and jaw strength on. All dogs have this instinct, and this is why specific dog chew toys exist for this purpose. Puppies go through a teething period just like children and they will try to chew anything in their reach. Sometimes this may be a symptom of discomfort, as growing teeth can be painful for them.

5. Apply Dog Anti-Chew To The Leather Car Seats.

You can check out an article I wrote earlier on Why Do Dogs Lick Leather?. It’s a detailed post on why our doggy friends lick and bite leather items, and how to safely prevent them from doing so.

Plus, rawhide goes through more bleaching processes and is soaked in more chemicals than shoe leather. All of which makes it even more surprising that rawhide chews are such popular treats for dogs. But the dangers of rawhide chews don’t stop there. The dangers to pets also include:

The cap of the water bottle can come off and the dog can swallow it leading to a blockage. Also, dogs can tear off pieces of the plastic pretty easily resulting in sharp, rough edges. The dog may try to swallow these sharp pieces and/or cut their gums chewing on the newly exposed rough edges. 6. Hard objects. There are many hard objects your dog could chew on, for instance hard plastic can be ...

Even the toughest leather couches can't take the daily scratching and clawing of dog and cat nails without showing a little wear eventually. However, your pooch and kitty don't spell doom for your leather sofa. Capped claws, nail-friendly covers and even scratching posts can keep your couch in pristine condition.

They often cite the “naturalness” of dogs chewing on bones, since wolves and dogs in the wild will eat or chew through bones. That’s partially true, but only if you ignore these other facts about bones: Bones Splinter: Whether cooked, uncooked, solid, or hollow, bones can and do splinter, yet they're still hard enough to break teeth. Those splinters can lead to mouth and/or digestive ...

Many essential oils, such as eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, cinnamon, citrus, peppermint, pine, wintergreen, and ylang ylang are straight up toxic to pets. These are toxic whether they are applied to the skin, used in diffusers or licked up in the case of a spill.
Cat food tends to be high in fat, calories and protein which means it's not ideal for dogs. Dogs with sensitive stomachs may suffer gastrointestinal upset, sickness and diarrhoea after eating cat food.

Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.

Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.

Why Aren't Pork Bones Safe for Dogs? Pork bones, whether raw or cooked, are likely to splinter and crack when your dog chews on them. Your dog might attempt to swallow small pieces of the pork bone, which could lead to choking, intestinal blockages, or damage to the esophagus or intestines.

Safe: Some Vegetables.

Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.

Even a plain baked potato is OK.

Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.

Rawhide bones and other edible chews can pose a choking and blockage risk. In fact, this is a much bigger risk than contamination or digestive irritation. If your dog swallows large pieces of rawhide, the rawhide can get stuck in the esophagus or other parts of the digestive tract.
