Bringing a new dog into the home is an exciting time for you and your family. If this is your first pet, and especially if you have children, emotions can be running even higher. Hopefully you’ve put a lot of research and planning into this moment and it is understandable to get caught up in the moment.
Dogs are notorious chewers. They’ll chew on raw hide, tough rubber toys, shoes, and pretty much anything they think is up for grabs that they can get their mouth on. Unfortunately, they are also known to chew on themselves! There are a lot of reasons dogs might chew on themselves, but whatever the case may be, it’s a behavior you will definitely want to stop. Excessive chewing can lead to skin infections, reduced mobility (if they are chewing on their paws), poor hygiene and a bad smelling pup. Luckily you have a lot of options when it comes to how to change the behavior and fix the problem.
When it comes to service and therapy dogs, one of the biggest challenges isn’t dealing with your ailment. Instead, it’s navigating life in a world full of people that don’t know (or worse, THINK they know) everything about these animals and their relationship with you. If you’re considering getting a service or therapy dog, you may already be aware of some of these issues.
