The following paragraphs are full of dog training advice you can use to teach your dog many things, including cutting back on uninvited chewing.
Proper and generous rewards are critical to dog training. Giving you pet treats in a timely manner is very important. Make sure to give your dog the treats at the proper time, to encourage good behavior.
The first step of training your pooch should be to assert your control. Your dog must understand that you’re in control, so that he knows to obey and respect you. Never allow your dog pull on the leash while you are on a walk.
Pick a consistent phrase to use with your puppy while house training. For example, you could use the phrase, “go potty” when you take them outside to help them remember what to do when you go outside and say the command.
When you are training a pet you need to speak to them in a even and stern tone. This lets them know you’re serious and that they must obey. Additionally, it distances discipline commands from normal commands.
Approach an unfamiliar dog slowly, offering only the backside of your hand for his inspection. He’ll learn your scent and begin to have trust. As you become close to one another, fear will be diminished and opportunities to learn together will be increased.

You want your dog to behave. This reduces the chances of your dog getting injured and it also saves you tons of money. Use the tips here and your training will help the dog to stop chewing.
