Question by Jewel: Boxer Puppy is EATING EVERYTHING, can you HELP???
My 4 1/2 mo old Boxer puppy “Bella” is eating paper, toilet paper, and anything in the garbage cans that are low to the floor. She also eats my hubby’s wallet, credit cards, and tears his bills. She steals my house shoes too! As a matter of fact …… phooey ……. WHERE ARE my slippers? They were just right here.
PLEASE someone HELP ME?
I don’t want to whip her, but don’t know what to do.
I catch her RIGHT AWAY and punish her, but it is doing no good.
I can’t sleep since she is up and running amock, and she is too large now to kennel. She weighs like 40 to 45 pounds already! YIKES!!!!!!! She is like 1 1/2 ft tall from paws to her back.
Answer by brainiac
substitution. Get her several toys and rawhide chewies. Scold her when she gets something off limits, then give her a chewy with praise. It will take a little bit, but it works. I had one that did the same thing. Now it’s all about the toys for her.
