Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Keeping a Heartworm Positive Dog Calm Empty
PostSubject: Keeping a Heartworm Positive Dog Calm   Keeping a Heartworm Positive Dog Calm EmptyWed Mar 27, 2019 8:54 pm

Hello! I recently got a Husky and he is heartworm positive. He starts his injections on April 8th and I was wondering if anyone had any tips. He is crate trained but he is a chewer. He pulled his bed out of his crate and started chewing on it, but he won't chew on it inside the crate. I just don't want him to get bored and become a destructive chewer. He's about 2 years old, so he still has the puppy energy but he is somewhat calm.

Any tips or suggestions or anything y'all could give me would be a huge help! (I would take toy suggestions too!)

Our dogs are chewers.  We just don't give them anything we don't expect to get destroyed.  My wife has purchased two of the beds from Costco ("this one seems durable").  I roll my eyes and ask her if she wants to wager how quickly the dogs will destroy it.  

I imagine you *might* be able to correct/ redirect him not to chew on certain things- like his bed- but it would take time.  You should stock up on items he can chew on like nylabones etc.

A trick I learned from a dog trainer was to store the chew toys buried in their dog food.  Give them one toy at a time and rotate.  Each time you give them one, it will smell and taste like their dog food.
