When it comes to puppies, it is perfectly natural for them to want to explore the world around them in their first few weeks of life. This is because, compared to their very first days of life (when their ayes and ears are sealed) the word that opens before them is completely new and full of new experiences.
Now, just as we have our hands to explore our surroundings, puppies use their mouths to chew at just about everything. This is why it is so important to get you puppy a few toys in order for him/her to play with them instead of him destroying your carpet, your shoes or your furniture.
There are some very important things to consider when buying some toys for your puppy however, like amount, type and how you will give them to him/her. For example, many owners make the mistake of getting just too many toys for their puppies and, while at first they might be distracted by all the variety, in the end they will end up going back to destroying the house. The reason for this is that, when presented with so many toys, puppies have a hard time figuring out which are “their belongings” and yours.
The best way to remedy this situation is by getting just a few toys and then keeping them in a specially designated area of the house where your puppy can play with them. This way, your puppy will easily get used to the idea of this area being his/her “playground”, and will not “play” with anything else in your house.
