year old male staffordshire and he still has his manhood. The dog loves chewing on bricks. He will push them around the yard with his nose until his nose is bloody and then lay down and chew on it for awhile. If he is on his lead and the brick gets away from him he stands there and barks at it and will not stop. He has broken his teeth. His canines are there but they do not come to a point anymore. They are flat. Is this really bad for him?
Why does my dog chew on bricks? My husband has a male dog that enjoys chewing on bricks and rocks. He is a 6?
Its extremely bad! go to the vet and get some help, when your dog starts to break its teeth thats bad because they dont have fake teeth for dogs like they have for humans
Reply:Breakage and excessive wear is bad. He could easily get to where he can't chew hard food due to lack of teeth. A broken tooth can also be very painful and require surgery to remove. Move the bricks to where he can't get to or preferably even see them. You can have his currently broken teeth repaired if you're willing to spend the money on it. It's just like repairing a chipped or broken tooth for a human.
Reply:first of all he needs to go to the vet.
try putting hotsauce on a couple bricks, and let him try it out. he probably wont like it very much
good luck =]
I've got a Rott that likes chewing on rocks. Not sure that i'll ever break him totally.
However, if you haven't tried a "Deer Antler", get him one. I'm betting he will have a new favorite chew toy!
Best of Luck!
Reply:could be that he is lacking some type of vitamin. i would catch him chewin on the brick, correct him, and replace the brick with a chew toy rawhide or something he can chew on...its just continually reinforcing and correcting...so he can relearn a new behavior that is not so harmful to him
