Chewing and mouthing is normal puppy behavior – it is how they explore the brand new world! They will learn which types of substrates and objects they like to chew on. It is up to you to help them get it right, so they grow up choosing appropriate places to put those teeth as they grow. Keep in mind, toys appropriate for baby teeth may not work well for adults – watch through development, and you may need to swap things out as their adult teeth come in between 6 and 8 months. Avoid super hard chews for puppies. Growing teeth and jaws aren't made for hard chews. Always ask your vet if you aren't sure.
