Why do dogs need to chew?
Through each stage of their life, dogs need to chew and there are developmental and environmental triggers:
Not having enough to keep their minds busy can result in them finding their own ways to have fun and relax.
The feel good factor is found in chewing.
Me time doesn’t suit everyone and for some dogs, being away from their owners can cause stress levels to rise.
Chewing is the perfect way to self soothe.
Anxiety caused by changes in their routine, different surroundings or something that has happened earlier that day can all cause our dogs emotions to overflow.
Endorphines released by chewing helps make them feel better again.
