New puppies like to chew, just like babies like to put things in their mouths. Often this is for the same purpose too - teething. Baltimore dog owners do not have to put up with chewed up furniture, though, as there are ways to help minimize the chewing on furniture and other objects while directing chewing to appropriate objects.
