Just because some of you guys wanted to see my lil pupper. :> Her names Wilhelm, 9 weeks old, baby floofer also known as a Samoyed. She's super sweet, and for the last four days has been really adjusting to her new home and rules. They've been hard and night time has been full of awo's but the past two nights have been much better and she's beginning to show her cheeky personality. She enjoys harassing snails after the rain, chasing me, nipping at ugg boots, and now is really into belly rubs. We haven't found the perfect chew toy yet. Ropes are fun but get boring, her plush bone gets a little attention and tennis balls are okay-if anyone has any suggestions and puppy expertise on chew toys pls give me all the suggestions.
Lil woof is the centre of my universe at the moment. I'm trying to keep up with Indigents and I know I'm a little behind on my patreon rewards, however she is starting to settle and is less stressed out and needy than she was when she first came home so I feel that I can get back into my art groove. Isn't she just so cute?

ERMERGERD! She is adorable! Every dog has its favorite chew toy...just like people have favorite things. Trial and error is the only way. Look things good for teething. When we had a Siberian Husky pup he loved empty plastic milk jugs. His baby teeth would get trapped in them <G>

Have you tried stuffed animals? My cousin has a dog that loves stuffed animals, just make sure it is to her size :)

@Trinkuh I want to try pigs ears but I was worried about her milk teeth, I'm over paranoid I think. I'll have to pick up a rubber squeaky toy, I don't have any!That might be the missing piece. Thanks for the suggestions!
@sstogner1 ; w; Thank you. I've actually had a coworker suggest an empty plastic bottle to me! I may have to try this now. I'd rather some plastic chewing than my poor hand or tree bark. I know she needs to chew so I'm desperate. xD
@sunhorse This is a good suggestion. We tried to cuddle a blanket to put our smell on it to give to her when we leave, but it doesnt interest her much. I'm sure a t-shirt would have more of a scent in it! She does get a little anxious when we leave but calms down if she can't see us anymore. We try and get her to stay in her safe space for little periods of time to get her accustomed. I will try the shirt trick though, thank you!

@Istamea I will try that! We have one stuffed animal but it was one we used in the car after picking her up from the airport so I don't know if she has the negative association with it or its just not got enough stuffing to feel worth chewing. I'll look at picking up a new one! Thanks. * w*
@RainDebJoys Ahh thank you!! I'm resisting smothering her because of her cuteness. She's got one perked up ear and the other one hasn't popped up yet so the head tilts are ultra adorable.

@Trinkuh Ah, awesome! I hear Kongs are really brilliant to have, I'll see if I can get this style in Australia or I'll try and order one online. :> Much appreciated!

It's been a long time since i had a puppy and since moving into my apartment i can't afford the pet deposit to get one and get pet too. I had a shiz tus and Rot/Chow/Walker mix from puppy to adult.

When she starts teething (losing her baby teeth), get either a rope toy or pair of old socks knotted together. They both floss and gently remove the baby teeth.

I looped a video of myself talking to our German Shepherd and she watched it on the television. It stopped her crying and stress chewing. Hope it helps and she's a cutie♡♡♡

So cute! <3 my first dog was a Samoyed! Mom got Umilina when she was 2 months old, and I was only 9 months old. We were together until just after my 11th birthday.

I feel blessed

my dog loved balls made out of socks - has smell (lots LOL).
agree with tamerlane, a dog or a wolf would be nice, adds a niceness tone to the story (as long as it stays alive...)

Kong toys are pretty good - especially the one you can stuff with peanut butter or the like - the only downside is it can be kinda high calorie, but you can find some good recipes for healthier snacks to stuff it with

Everyone has given such a variety of useful tips. Well done on being so adaptable and a good dog parent.
