  • Tell him no and give him something that he is allowed to chew on instead. Repeat until he gets it. How old is he?

  • When my dog was a puppy she chewed the corners of our walls! I got a no-chew spray at Walmart or Target and it worked great I think it has a bitter taste so they don't like it.

  • His age will be the biggest thing that will depend on how to change his behavior. If he is a puppy he needs something to teeth on. If he is older, then he is probable just bored. Get the bitter apple spray, if you get the name brand, it wont stain and it tastes horrible to them.
