Teething Puppies!! Into everything!!

My puppy is going through his teens apparently and is teething. He has had to be put in his crate, time and again, and sent outside more than once, just for general misbehavior like stealing things, ripping newspapers, jumping on us, tearing up a box of tissues.

He had been learning his manners and behaving like a good puppy, but overnight he has turned into a hellion.

How long does this usually last for a medium sized dog? Is there any specific remedy for this kind of behavior or do you have to just roll with it until they grow out of it? We have been trying to give him more excercise, but this doesn't seem to do anything.

:D I see Val is only a little over 4 months old . Been there with mine , actually my guy wasn't as bad as your describing. Take her outside and wear her out ! Do you have friends with dogs ? Invite them over or just the dog over for play sessions, that WORKS ! I had a lot of frozen , clean dish clothes in the freezer for him when he was teething, they seemed to work well , as did large ice cubes chewed while under strict observation .

oh the teenage time hasn't hit yet. for aussies the teenage time is between 10 and 20 months old. They like to pretend that they forgot their training, and all that fun stuff. Teething is not fun eather though. I found that Hawk really liked to chew on plasic water bottles for teething. try that.

When your Aussie hits his juvenile delinquent phase, you may look back fondly on the serenity of his teething phase. Puberty hits some dogs (and some people) harder than others. It doesn't last forever...it just seems that way.

Yes, so many times I have heard about the terrible 2s or 3s with children. Compare that with teen-agers, whoops there is no comparison. It's the same with dogs and everybody is correct, teething is not teen-aging,

Later on if you're religious prayer might help.(maybe)

Well, the poor guy is teething terrible; I am using old socks dipped in water and frozen for him to chew. There has been a little blood on one of his toys today and a few days ago. I took a look at his gums and there are a few big boy teeth coming in. It must hurt like hell. I will give a try on the plastic water bottles though.

Yes, he is pretending that he forgot all his training, especially yesterday!! What fun!!

For some reason, I thought the teens were younger...LOL....that's a different thing altogether, thanks for letting me know....makes sense....teething isn't when one is a teenager!!

P.S. My Aussie girl (RIP) died at age 14 and I don't really remember exactly what went on with her when she was a puppy; seems like so long ago...but we miss our girl terribly.
