I've had Remy for 3 weeks now and he's doing great! He's a BIG chewer though and I'm wondering about chews for his age--11 weeks? I've got puppy nylabones and lots of toys for him to chew on but I was thinking of adding in something more interesting as we intensify our crate training so that I can leave the house for a bit. My vet said "anything that you can make an indent into with your fingernail." So that's great, but what types of products does that include? I've never bought bully sticks or himalayan cheese chews before so I don't know if those are "indentable." Any help is appreciated.
My second question relates to feeding him. The positive training book I have been using recommended I hand feed him for the first week. We did that and everything was great. However, here we are 3 weeks in and he won't eat out of a bowl by himself. If I don't feed him by hand, for the most part, he doesn't eat. I've tried just picking the bowl up and putting it back down at the next meal but this hasn't worked. I've tried leaving my hand in the bowl while he eats out of the bowl and that works for a minute or so but then he either walks away or paws at me to put the food in my hand. Ugh. Any suggestions?
