    Talking Our lil Bert starting to munch on the couch

    Well, my pup is just 10weeks old and he's starting to eat the couch. Vet said we couldn't give him a toy until he's atleast 4months old and his tummy problems get a lil better. Should we just let him eat our couch?LOL. Can i give him a wood plank or something hehe. I have no idea what to do.

    Why could you not give him a toy? @Davidh or @desertskybulldogs. ... Can you think of something he can have, nylabone maybe?

    I don't understand why he can't have a toy but definitely do not allow him to chew on the couch

    I brought two of my babies home at 9 weeks and they had tons of toys here waiting for them. Tummy problems have nothing to do with most toys unless it's toys you put treats in. Puppies need to chew, puppy kongs and nylabones are perfectly okay for any puppy even from 3 to 4 weeks old.

    I would say you should at least get him something... he's going to destroy your house if you don't!!!

    Default Our lil Bert starting to munch on the couch

    Its time to change a vet!
    Toys are great way to redirect attention from unwanted chewing on a furniture
    Its also good for their teeth -once they start teething they will need it ,and great for their own development mental stimulation and bonding through play x

    At that age hard rubber toys are best, and I'm also confused as to why no toys. Unless the vet doesn't want any bacteria to be ingested. In that case, wash the toys often in dish soap and rinse them well. Or toss them in the dishwasher or boil them in hot water to remove any bacteria. But no toys??? No way!!!

    I always ask mom to buy him tons of toys cause he really likes to play a lot. Mom said he gave him a turtle stuff toy to chew on but removed it after having those tummy problems. Now since he.dont have anything to chew on he swallows anybodys big toe,all of it! Or go and munch on the couch.Ok so you guys recommend a rubber or plastic toy that's washable.got it! I.hope.i can find something safe without lead. Can i give him big bones of a cow(my english sucks).Theres A lot of recalls on baby toys,so i hope the dog toys available here are safe.

    Yes he now weighs 1.75kg from 1.5.yaaaaay!

    No plastic, just hard rubber, and make sure it's bigger than his entire mouth.

    Big bones of a cow, sounds like marrow bones? @2BullyMama would you recommend if he's having tummy trouble?

    Yes, cleaned cow bones are a good choice, I would not give him with the marrow or flesh till the tummy troubles clear up

    I say you buy your new puppy some toys and find your puppy a new vet. I have worked in a vet clinic for 14 years and with a dog trainer and the first thing we tell them is when they chew on something of yours your take it away and replace it with a toy of his own.
