Do You Know Your Dog’s Typical Chewing Behavior?

Understanding your dog's chewing habits is essential for ensuring they have the right chews to satisfy their needs. Dogs exhibit varying levels of chewing behavior, from more relaxed to highly aggressive. By recognizing these differences, we can tailor our choices to suit each pet perfectly.

  • Moderate Chewer: These dogs enjoy chewing as a pastime rather than an obsession. They may carry plush toys around and engage in gentle play without destructive tendencies.
  • Heavy Chewer: For these dogs, chewing is a significant part of life. They relish sinking their teeth into something substantial but do so at a reasonable pace. While plush toys may not last long, they often distinguish between softer toys and more durable chews.
  • Power or Aggressive Chewer: These dogs possess an insatiable urge to chew, often with remarkable strength. They require sturdy, indestructible chews as they can quickly make short work of typical toys. Plush toys are out of the question for these determined chewers.

Finding the perfect chew for your pup involves understanding their chewing style. Consider the following recommendations:

  • Moderate Chewer: Opt for options like Coffee + Coco, offering a playful yet satisfying chewing experience.
  • Moderate to Heavy Chewer: Coffee Wood Stick, Antler Split, or Sheep Horn are excellent choices for dogs with a bit more chewing gusto.
  • Aggressive Chewer: Briar Root or Antler Whole are durable options suitable for dogs with powerful chewing instincts.

It's essential to remember that every dog is unique, and what works for one may not work for another. Consider exploring our Happy Chew Box to discover which chew delights your furry friend the most. Your dog's happiness and well-being are our top priorities.
