Dalmatian House Training
Chew Toys for Your Dalmatian Puppy
Chewing is normal for all puppies. It is their hereditary way of
communicating within the litter. You should have some chew toys for the
puppy to use in order to replace undesirable chewing tendencies.
If your Dalmatian puppy goes for the TV knobs, give him a 1/4in
diameter composite chewing log. All Dalmatians are incredibly efficient
at destroying chew toys. The only one that is apparently indestructible
is the beehive-shaped rubber toy, which lasts for years around both
pups and adults, and they enjoy chewing them.
You can use these chew items as tools in your dog training. An
inexpensive thing that puppies will play with for days before they
start to wear it out is a plastic pop bottle. If you keep the cap on,
the container is too large to get a good grip on and the puppies will
use it as a giant hockey puck whenever they see it.
Another caution with regard to chewing has to do with house, yard, and
garden plants. Identify the vegetation you have and call your vet, a
plant expert, or maybe even do your own research and find out whether
your plants are toxic to dogs.
They will chew on rocks, too, especially ones about as big as your
thumb that are fun to toss around in their mouths. If you catch them
doing this, take the rock from them and get rid of it, telling them
"No!" Them praise him and give him a treat.
Some Dalmatians will get
carried away with sloshing them around in their mouths and before they
know it, they swallow them.
There are also foods that are toxic to dogs. Teaching a Dalmatian what
is and is not permissible to chew is generally a process that lasts the
lifetime of the dog. They are constantly discovering new things to
As a final note on chewing, though it is cute to have the puppy
untie your shoelaces or clamp surprisingly sharp puppy teeth on your
fingers, it is not cute for a sixty-pound adult to do the same things.
If you want a well-behaved adult Dalmatian, do not allow your puppy to
continue his "chewing communication" with you. When he comes up and
puts his mouth on anything that you would not allow an adult to bite or
chew, or catch him in the act of starting to bite the object and tap
him on the end of the nose with your index finger, and tell him
clearly, without yelling, "No!"
This kind of correction will startle the puppy more than anything else,
and you will find that he will direct his attention somewhere else
almost immediately. make sure you give him heaps of praise when he
changes his focus of activity.
If you are consistent with this form of correction at an early age, you
will wind up with a very well-mannered Dalmatian House Training For
