Puppy teething

By From page A5 | January 06, 2014

EDITOR:

Uncle Matty, you were “spot on” when your wrote the Dec. 27, 2013 “Passing on useless advice.” Puppies’ teething causes a challenge to deal with. They want and need relief and chewing something is required. They might use your finger, hand or pant leg, or great grandma’s antique chair leg. A bleeding finger or unrepairable chair leg are not the best choices, but for the puppy they will do.

I have never heard the suggestion you made of a frozen towel for them to chew on. One thing you left out concerning this suggestion is leaving the towel with the puppy is not a good idea. If they chew it up and swallow it you can end up waiting for it pass through or worse it can cause the death to the little one. After the towel has melted take it away from them and find something else to distract them with.
