Why Does My Australian Shepherd Puppy Chew Anything Metal?

by Kathy
(Louisiana)


I have a new 12-week-old puppy. We keep buying new chew toys but the only thing he wants is metal bar stools, the latch on his leash, and even his bowls. We tell him no, move him from the object and give him one of his chew toys, but in a second he on to his next metal piece.

I know he is a chewer so we try to find outlets for him but he is stubborn.

Any suggestions? Or explanations?

Puppy is probably teething and the metal is cold and perhaps feels good on the gums. Try offering an ice cube to chew on. You might also try freezing a chew toy.
