    My Jindo puppy doesn't like his chew toys

    My 5 weeks old Jindo puppy doesn't like his chew toys. Is there a way to get him to like his chew toys and instead of chewing on the things around the house, actually chew his chew toys?

    He likes chewing on alot of things around the house and even on human flesh.. I really hope I can teach him to chew his chew toys so that he won't chew the other things as much.

    Oh, my! 5 weeks is so young! At that age, a puppy's mama and brothers and sisters would be teaching him bite inhibition, basically, that all biting is not ok. Normally, when a breeder would let a puppy go by age 8-10 weeks, the puppy would have a head start on biting, and you'd continue the training.

    Have you tried lots of different types of toys? Puppies are different. Our first pup liked rope toys and soft toys like stuffed animals (made for puppies), but our second likes hard plastic or rubber toys.

    When your puppy bites or chews on inappropriate things, try to offer a chew toy instead, and if he takes it, then also give him a yummy treat!

    I got him when he was 4 weeks old. I'm new to puppies so I had no idea they were suppose to stay with their mother and littermates until atleast 8 weeks of age. I only found about this after bringing him home with me and people actually said I should just keep the puppy instead of returning him to the breeder until 8 weeks because that the environment he stayed in was so horrible and all the littlermates were already adopted as well.

    I tried 2 toys. The first one was really hard and a bit too big for him. So I got him a smaller rubber toy with a scent to make his breath smell better. However, he doesn't like this either and refuses to chew it. I gave him a small teddy bear and he absolutely loves it. He bites, chews, and wrestles with it quite often. I guess I'll try getting him rope and stuffed animal toys like you suggested!

    Yes, get him soft toys. You might try smearing a tiny bit of something tasty on the harder toys, peanut butter, kong paste, baby food, etc. Make sure the harder toys are not too big for his tiny mouth to get hold of.
