Tethering Question

We are trying out tethering today. How do I get him to chew on the numerous toys etc I have available rather than the leash?

chain leash, they shouldn't chew on that.

How old is the dog you are tethering?

Is it just for brief periods of time when you are home?

Chain leash is my suggestion if you want to tether your dog out and not have him chew through the leash. I also suggest lots of good toys that will keep your dog busy and chewing on stuff.

Antlers can be found in pet stores and amazon.

Kong Stuffed with wet food, peanut butter, pumpkin, yogurt, treats, etc.

Kong Wobbler (my dog loves this! But it may wobble out of the tether room, which would very frustrating for him if he can see it and its just barely out of reach.. so maybe bad idea.)
