: Hi we have a 4 month old jack russell. We can not keep our newspapers in the living room any more. He will grab them and chew it apart. Is this a teething problem, any suggestions??
: Thanks, Maryann Fahey


Hi Maryann,

My first suggestion would be to put the newspaper up where your dog can't reach it. At 4 months of age you may have some teething going on also. I'd consider puppy proofing the house and providing some safe chew toys. You can also train your pup to recognise the difference between a good chew and a bad chew by removing the one and substituting the other. Jack Russells are happy to learn new things especially when learning is accompanied by praise and treats.
