Liesje He probably just likes that surface but I would not allow it, that could damage his teeth. If given the option, my puppy will chew wood, rocks, drywall.... I just keep plenty of appropriate chew things lying around (mostly nylabones and dried marrow bones). He goes in his crate and gets a Himalayan chew if he's being annoying (he has to eat it in his crate so my other dogs won't steal it from him).

Yeah I'll try that, thanks

Cassidy's Mom He's only 8 weeks old, so he's not teething yet. Puppies chew. Who know why they chew what they chew? I've had puppies that loved rugs, others that loved cardboard boxes, garden hoses, plastic flowerpots, any number of things.

It was just something he learned he could get away with as a baby and hasn't figured out that ceramic tile doesn't work the same way.
But he just started doing it today... We were just sitting on the floor and he started licking the tile and scraping his teeth on, honestly looks painful
