Why is chewing good for your dog?

Dogs like to chew. Chewing is a natural behavior for all dogs because it allows them to explore the world around them, exercise their jaws and even clean their teeth. It also engages them mentally and alleviates boredom. It helpsexpels energy and produces feel-good chemicals in their brain, keeping them calm and relaxed. So, can we relive their stresses by allowing them to chew? Absolutely!

Chewing helps keep your dog’s teeth and gums clean and strong, and it encourages the flow of cleansing, antibacterial saliva through your dog’s mouth.

Lack of proper items to chew
It can lead to destructive chewing and other behavioral problems when a dog lacks the proper items to chew. To allow your dog to fulfill its natural desire to gnaw on things, you can provide your dog plenty of dog chew toys. Another way to fulfill your dog’s need to chew while offering a tasty treat is supplying your dog with tasty natural dog treats.

Puppies who are given the private space and leisure time to chew on a raw, meaty bone of food-stuffed toys will quickly develop the habit of spending time by themselves and chewing contentedly are less likely to develop separation anxiety with their owners.

It can be hard to decide which are the safest and healthiest chews for your dog with so many types of chews on the market. Not all chews are made equal, some are healthier than others. Make sure you’re only giving your dog quality dog treats that are natural and free from artificial flavorings or additives.

Which dog chews are the best for your dog?
Every dog is different so there is no one chew that is right for every dog. If your dog is overweight or have sensitive stomachs, it may be best to stick with non-edible dog chew toys instead. You might also need to try a few different types of dog chews before you discover what works best for your dog if he is very selective. For overall healthy and non-discerning dogs, they will probably enjoy a little bit of everything. Just always remember not to give your dog treats or chews that makes up more than about 10 percent of your dog’s diet.

Whatever you decide, make sure you supervise your dog while feeding dog chews to ensure that they do not ingest large pieces, which can cause gastrointestinal obstructions or injure themselves since some chews can lead to broken teeth or cause oral injuries.
