Do siberian huskies chew furniture?
It's normal for puppies and dogs to chew on objects as they explore the world.
For young dogs, it's a way to relieve pain that might be caused by incoming teeth.
For older dogs, it's nature's way of keeping jaws strong and teeth clean.
Chewing also combats boredom and can relieve mild anxiety or frustration.
The danger though is that the dog begins to use sticks as toys and many dogs will begin chewing on the stick.
Wood splinters easily when chewed on and shards can jam into the dog's mouth causing an infection.
Also if pieces of wood are swallowed, it can cause intestinal blockage.
