CHEW TOYS & BONES
Your puppy has a need for chew toys. If you do not provide him with adequate chewies, he will find his own. However, if you provide your puppy with chew toys, and he still prefers your shoes or furniture, correct him and then give him an appropriate chew toy. It is very important that when you stop your puppy from chewing on something inappropriate, you provide him with something which is appropriate for him to chew on. Your puppy will soon learn to only chew on "his" toys.
I recommend Roar-hide bones when giving your puppy something to chew on inside his crate.
If using natural rawhide bones, please make sure that they are large & will not be swallowed whole. Also, because natural rawhide can get soft and slimy while being chewed on, it is easy for your dog to accidentally swallow a piece and possibly choke. Therefore, if you use natural rawhide, it should only be while you are around to supervise.
If you choose to provide real bones for your dog to chew on, it is best to use RAW beef knuckle bones. These will not splinter like smaller or cooked bones. These bones also provide HOURS of chewing pleasure. If your pet is not used to raw foods, you may wish to limit the amount of time your pet chews on the bone at first. It may be too rich for his system, and cause digestive upset.
Other items for chewing pleasure are

I personally do not use or recommend non-edible chew toys such as Kong toys, or Nylabones. There have been reports of dogs ingesting bits and pieces that they have chewed off, and causing intestinal blockage that can be difficult to diagnose or see on an x-rays due to the material from which these toys are made.
