Let Him Have Fun – Teething and a constant stream of chew toys can bore your pup, to avoid this and to avoid him chewing on things he is not suppose to, let him have plenty of playtime and exercise. A stimulated dog is a happy dog!
What Toys ?– Toys are fine for pups when they are teething, in fact it is encouraged as i mentioned above, just make sure you give your pup safe toys to chew on. Never give them toys that pieces could be chewed off and swallowed.
