Puppy Teething Survival Tips

After those initially blissful weeks puppies  begin to develop, and that means growing pains. One of the first is teething.

Whether you've rescued a six-month old pup from the shelter or a brand-new puppy from a breeder, teething is an unavoidable part of growing up. It’s painful, fussy and usually results in your favorite pair of shoes getting chewed up and slobbered on.

Here are a few tips to help make teething a less miserable experience for your little guy:

Let the teething begin

Your puppy most likely went through the initial stages of teething before arriving at your home. Between 2 and 4 weeks old, their deciduous or puppy teeth first appear.

At three to four months old, prime puppy-teething usually begins and can last for two to three months. Your pup’s adult canines will start to come in and replace the puppy ones. Don’t be alarmed if you don’t find the original puppy teeth around the house. Many pups just swallow them as their adult teeth appear.
