as the subject line suggests, our 1yr old has started chewing and eating sticks.

i've always been told this is a no-no but i don't know:
a) is it a sign of something
b) should i be worried
c) if b = yes, how can i stop it

all advice gratefully received,

Cam

LOL, sticks, one of the bassets favorite toys...........best thing to do is have play toys out there to discourage the sticks.......I have big rope bones, cow hooves, and etc... out back............but they'll still find a stick to play with and chew on.

There is just some bad habits I just don't think you can break......dogs like chewing on things, the stick is there and handy and they'll reach out and chew on them..........giving them alternative things to chew on and trying to keep sticks picked up (easier said than done) helps but is still no guarantee.

If you have a serious stuck chewer, perhaps put some deterrent on one like hot sauce and etc.. to try and break his stick chewing habit.
