How to Keep a Dog From Chewing Another Dog's Collar Off
Teaching Your Dog Not to Chew
- 1). Get out the bottle of water and the jar full of pennies and let your dogs start playing with each other.
- 2). When you see your dog begin to chew on the other dog's collar, immediately say "No! Leave it!" and spray her in the face with the water.
- 3). If your dog stops chewing, pet him and praise him. Put the spray bottle down and let the dogs start playing again.
- 4). Every time your dog starts chewing on the other dog's collar, spray her in the face with the spray bottle and say "No! Leave it!" Pet and praise her every time she stops chewing.
- 5). If the spray bottle fails to do the trick, try shaking the jar of pennies whenever the dog begins chewing on the other dog's collar. Most dogs find the noise that the pennies make quite unpleasant.
- 6). Every single time your dog starts chewing on the other dog's collar, correct him by shaking the jar of pennies. Pet and praise him when he stops.
- 7). Your dog should be learning to associate chewing on the other dog's collar with somewhat unpleasant consequences, and not chewing on the other dog's collar with pleasant consequences. To reinforce good behavior when you are not home, take the other dog's collar off and saturate it with anti-chewing spray. Then, put the collar back on the dog.
- 8). Continue correcting/praising your dog when you are home and treating the other dog's collar with anti-chewing spray when you leave. Do these things until the chewing behavior stops.
