Help! My puppy chews my shoelaces!

First, remember your puppy is just exploring the world.  But don’t forget that cute behavior in a two month old puppy might become unbearable in a two year old dog so now’s the time to teach your puppy what’s acceptable.

If your puppy is pulling on your shoelaces, don’t laugh or ooh and ahh no matter how cute he is.  Tell him no very firmly and offer him his toy.  Praise him when he lets go of your shoelace and takes the toy. 

Any other methods that work well for you?
