#1: Puppy chewing plants: Any ideas?

Posted on 2006-07-19 10:48:46 by SallyJ

I have a new puppy who is at the stage where everything (and I mean
everything) goes in his mouth! This includes flowers, leaves, twigs
and anything else he finds around the garden. I checked up which
plants were potentially poisonous and to my horror found that the list
includes many common species including virtually all bulbs,
philadelphus, ivy, delephiniums, lily of the valley, cherry laurel,
clematis armandii, dicentra and many more! Does anyone have any good
ideas about how to stop a puppy chewing these plants?

Many thanks

No smart ideas. The same issue can arise with children and grandchildren.

When our still young Jack Russells &amp; older wire haired dachies were paying
too much attention to the ducks, we put a very low voltage rabbit fencing
round the enclosure. Each dog touched his nose to it just once..... I do
stress *very* low voltage but it's unexpected and was just enough to keep
them away from that area as long as the ducks lived there.

It isn't at all cruel to tap a puppy _gently_ on the head while sharply
saying &quot;No!&quot; when he's in the very act of some crime or folly. In fact,
it's rather cruel not to: that's the way their mothers and aunts train
them in nature, after all. A well-trained dog is a happy dog, as well
as being safer among the hazards of life. I don't think there's much
need to worry about the poisons in plants: a nasty taste will often do
the trick without help from the owner, and they rarely swallow a lot.
If they do swallow a bit too much of something, there'll probably be
more damage to the carpet than to the animal, and you probably don't
let him on the carpet yet anyway.

This year I've had to make a little fence, poles and green wires, to
stop one of my youngest dogs (now 1 1/2 yrs) to go into the triangle
which has my favourite plants. As much as my 2 other dogs understood
very quickly not to walk on it, this one just didn't. She has the
memory of a gold fish ... I however had to distract her too, everytime
I could see her going for a good dig or a good chew. Eventually with
patience they do understand. Also, one does learn with experience, my
dogs all had to learn not to drink the sea water nor chew something
they shouldn't, especially my shoes!

However, you ought to provide your pup some grass to eat so he/she can
be sick if he/she needs to. You will find even at a small age that if
they eat something that upset them they will try to be sick by eating
something else. Mine are either going for the grass or the solidago.
Don't ask why though I suspect the solidago to have a quicker reaction.
Also treat him/her with chews, and keep some wood he/she can reach in
the garden. I also keep their favourite sticks on the side of the house
so that if they go for something they shouldn't, I remind them where
their stuff is :o)

Many thanks for all your ideas .. I have now fenced off the patio so he
can roam on this while staying safely in my sight ... have bought him a
wider range of chews.. am starting to teach him &quot;drop&quot;.. and I keep
his favourite things within easy reach for rapid distraction. Once
again many thanks.

Sally, one thing I've seen people use, though I've never tried it myself,
is a plastic bottle with a few pebbles in it. When the puppy does something
you don't like, you rattle the bottle which makes them stop because it
distracts and slightly alarms them. Then you immediately call them to give
them a treat.
This year I've noticed one our dogs eating goose grass, BTW. No loss to us
but I do wonder why - there must be something medicinal in it.

What we do is have a &quot;word&quot; that is associated with doing something naughty
like chewing anything - we use a sharp &quot;Ah Ah&quot; ... and it is currently in
use a lot with two five week old Jack Russell puppies ... they get used to
it and it soon works. You just have to be consistent with the &quot;word&quot; and
it's use - never needed to touch them at all. Trained the pups' mother this
way when she was a pup too ...

This reminds me ... with Matilda, my 8 years old dog, we found
ourselves desperate as she, at 14 months old, kept peeing in the
landing, or worse on our shoes as we arrived home. We thought that she
had a serious problem, couldn't understand why. Until a friend dog
trainer came to our house and watch what was happening. Within an hour
she had worked out our problem. When we got Matilda (our then 3rd dog
and same breed as the others) we trained her like the others - one
thing we did was as puppies let them into the garden for the last pee
of the day. We then used to say 'have you been? Good girl!'. When we
come home from work we used to say as we opened the door &quot;have you been
a good girl?&quot; and then Matilda peeing either whilst we opened the door
or on our shoes as we greeted her. She took the 'been' word as a cue
for peeing.

Simple when you know :o)

:o) But she wasn't just peeing of joy, she would actually crouch down
and have a huge pee on your shoes!! Now if you say to Matilda 'have you
been?', she goes around the garden frantically and pee. She's marvelous
for this when we're camping or at friends, peeing on command is quite a
bonus in some situation. Beulah does it too, though she needs to hear
the word 'pipi' LOL!!

&gt;&gt; When our still young Jack Russells &amp; older wire haired dachies were paying
&gt;&gt; too much attention to the ducks, we put a very low voltage rabbit fencing
&gt;&gt; round the enclosure. Each dog touched his nose to it just once..... I do
&gt;&gt; stress *very* low voltage but it's unexpected and was just enough to keep
&gt;&gt; them away from that area as long as the ducks lived there.
&gt;
&gt; Do you think that would work with tree rats?
&gt;

Only if you can train them to stay on the ground, Alan!

Visitors often laugh at our Golden Retrievers toy box (just an open plastic
stacking/storage box), but he knows they are his things, to do with as he
wishes. Keeps him happy. I just need to teach him to bring them all back
in from the garden every night, as I often have to go out there and pick up
at least six cuddlies scattered around. Don't like leaving them out as have
witnessed fox pups playing with my last dogs toys. He's an orally fixated
gundog, he loves his teddies and is partial to the odd sock, which he
parades around with in his mouth.

&gt; Many thanks for all your ideas .. I have now fenced off the patio so he
&gt; can roam on this while staying safely in my sight ... have bought him a
&gt; wider range of chews.. am starting to teach him &quot;drop&quot;.. and I keep
&gt; his favourite things within easy reach for rapid distraction. Once
&gt; again many thanks.
