Destructive Chewing

Destructive behavior is often one of the most common causes for complaint among many pet owners. Destructive behavior can take on many forms, including digging, scratching, chewing and even clawing.

One of the more frequent causes for destructive behavior in dogs is separation anxiety, a condition in which the dog is terrified of being left alone. In addition, specific elements in the dog’s environment can trigger fears and phobias, in these cases, chewing, digging and scratching can be tension- or fear-relieving behaviors.
