Teething

My 6 month old is teething and i was wondering if I should soak his food in water to make it easier on his teeth or if I should just leave it how it is?? Will it help his teething if I don't soak it??

I don't know if it will help with the teething, but he might like it regardless. We do this with ours, I don't remember how old they were when we started.

I just gave him his food with some water in it and it really seemed to help!! Added bonus, he loved it!! He scarfed it down and it didn't hurt him!!

Souds good!
I think it depends on the puppy. I never soaked the food for my male but my female didn't really like to chew her food while she was teething. For her I soaked it so it got a little mushy. After the teething she went back to non-soaked food without any problems.
And if your pup likes it, why not?
