Stop Dog Chewing The Easy Way - PREVENT It From Happening

One Proven Way To Prevent Destructive Chewing - Give Dogs an Alternative
One of the simplest ways to stop dog chewing is to provide your dog with indestructible toys. When he chews, He can work on HIS stuff, NOT your furniture, shoes, cell phone, or eyeglasses.

Some dogs just love to chew and rip toys to shreds within minutes. The Guinness Book of Records must record information about the canine who can remove a squeaker toy and scatter stuffing the fastest! Not a very hopeful thought, but many dogs never grow out of this phase - so OK-to-chew playthings are must-have purchases.

The Ultimate Chew Toy
For the cost of a few squeaker toys, you can get the ultimate, nearly indestructible chew toys – GoughNuts. The originals came in Green, Black, and .75 (a smaller version). Now there are stick versions of these miracles, also in green and black. The black ones were designed for the strong Big Boy or Girl Chewer – usually a larger dog.

Each of these items has an inner core of red material surrounded by either the black or green substance.

Goughnuts come in 6 different varieties and are virtually indestructible. If your dog is able to chew through to the red area, you call the manufacturer ASAP for a replacement. Black Goughnuts are stronger than green ones and are for extreme chewers.

Alvin's Recommendation
