10 Dog Breeds That Will Chew Anything


While all puppies go through a chewing phase, there are some breeds that do not seem to ever grow out of this bad habit. Unfortunately, many of them end up at the emergency vet because of it. So, if your breed is one of those that is “predisposed” to getting into things, be sure your house is dog-proofed.

#1 – Labrador Retriever

The lab is a retrieving dog, so naturally he likes to put things in his mouth. Add in a big dose of boredom when left alone and it adds up to some major chewing damage.

#2 – Golden Retriever

Like the lab, the golden will gladly find things to put in his mouth and chew on if left to occupy himself. Even into adulthood, these dogs are known for eating anything they can get their teeth on, and if it’s not a toy, it’s even better.

#3 – Shetland Sheepdog

High energy, intelligent, and food-oriented is a bad combination if you can’t watch your dog every second. Shetland sheepdogs will eat anything that smells or looks remotely like food, which can get them into trouble. My 10 year old end up with aspirated pneumonia after getting into my mom’s overnight bag and eating her vitamins 3 years ago.
