I've had success by 'painting' the spots where the puppy would chew with hot pepper sauce (the really hot kind). Obviously you would use the smooth sauce, nothing chunky or sweet hot! I've painted book cases, tables, chairs, and rockers, just the parts that would be attractive to a puppy. It worked so well that my old Golden avoided a particular spot for 12 years! Bad memories, I guess. I've even used the hot sauce on my hands when training a puppy not to bite. That worked pretty well, until a Rottie decided he liked the taste.

Sounds like your pup is teething. They do sell teething rings for dogs. I use to give my pup cardboard lids from boxes. She torn them all up which must have given her relief and comfort from teething cause she did leave the furniture alone.


I always had cardboard around until all her adult teeth finally came out.
