What causes destructive behavior in dogs?

Causes and treatments for destructive behavior

Anxiety

Can’t leave the house because your pup will tear up anything in their path? Destructive behavior is a common sign of a distressed, anxious pet. It can be moderate, such as chewing up a pillow when the dog is still new and nervous about being in your home, but it can also become very disruptive, including destroying door frames and furniture. If you can figure out why your dog is anxious, address that first. A new dog who came from a rescue could be very nervous, so creating safe, calming spaces and providing engaging activities might help. A dog that’s started chewing after a major change in diet could be suffering from calorie intakes that are too low. Or, the dog might not have good outlets for its normal energy, in which case giving it more chew toys and increasing the number of opportunities it has to run and play may be the best option.

Behavioral therapy

We work directly with two of only 80 board-certified veterinary behaviorists who create easy-to-learn training exercises and environmental enrichment techniques to create lasting change to help with your dog’s destructive behavior. Schedule your online vet visit today to learn more.

Vet prescribed anxiety treatment

Dog anxiety medication can help stop your dog’s destructive behavior in many cases. These can range from supplements that help calm the dog to prescription medications that affect brain chemistry.
