You can provide your dog with toys. Turn on the TV or anything that can keep your dog some company. As long as they are entertained, they won’t go near your furniture and start chewing on it. Chew treats and toys are great options – they can keep your dog amused and help with your dog’s teething at the same time.

Apply bitter sprays to your furniture

No pets want to chew on something that tastes bad. There are products on the market that you can use. Spray it directly on your wooden furniture and your dog will not chomp on it, no matter how bored he is.

Cover your furniture

To prevent you pet getting up on furniture while you are away cover it. Make sure that spot is nicely covered with something that is easy to wash and maintain.
