Question by Talker: How do you if your is teething?
My puppy is round about 17-18 weeks old, she’s a shepherd but we think she’s teething. She ripped through THICK yes THICK lionel flooring, ate a shoe, chewed our fire place corners, ate her own collar and a frisbee…yes a frisbee. Is she teething or is she just hungry. We feed her four times a day (One large dinner of biscuits, A bowl of dog meat at dinner, Biscuits for tea and then a small meat dish for supper)

OMG ! Yes of course she’s teething and by the sound of it she’s bored.
Buy her some large dog toys. Give her an ice cube – freeze a knotted towel for her to chew – you can even put toys in the freezer. The coldness is very soothing for her gums. Expect this behaviour for some time !!

    Your puppy will be teething until her baby teeth fall out – usually around the 5-6 months of age mark.

    Buy some toys that are designed for teething puppies. A kong will keep her busy. Put some biscuits or food inside that she has to try to get out.

    A big rawhide chew will also keep her out of trouble for a while.

    Head to your local pet store and ask them for appropriate items to give a german shepherd for teething.

    For items you don’t want her to chew on like the fire place and furniture, buy some decongestant rub and smear a little bit on those areas. Dogs hate the smell of it and won’t go near where you have put it.

    Yes, she is teething, she is totally in her landshark phase, shepherds have a crazy need to chew. You need to give her a number of different chews. And yes, she does sound like she is bored.

    My dog once chewed the entire leg off a kitchen chair, and ripped up the floor in my kitchen. He destroyed a car tire that was outside.
