    I have a 3 1/2 month old rottweiler puppy who loves to eat my rose bush, I have tried everything...

    to keep him away, and the bush keeps getting smaller and smaller. What other product is out there could I use?

    At the moment your dog is very young and keen to get his teeth on anything, he's just like a two year old child. Don't let your dog dictate what is supposed to happen, you are the responsible one. This type of dog needs a lot discipline, walking on the lead, listening for your commands to educate it. It thinks of the rose bush as a play item because you haven't told it that it isn't, be firm, give your dog other items to play with and reward him when he's good and chastise him when he's done wrong. Try walking with him and another dog walker, dogs learn from each other. Join a dog class when your dog is 6 months old, not before. My dog eventually became my soul mate so don't be in too much of a hurry. Enjoy your dog and love him, he will love you back ten fold.

    I have bought him plenty of chew toys, and I've rewarded him when he does good. And it still doesn't work. Needless to say, my rose bush has been chewed up! There maybe two little stems left on it, but thats it.

    No product needed. He's starting to teethe and is chewing what he can for relief. Here's what I've found works best. Take a cotton dishtowel, dip it in chicken broth (low sodium if you can find it, or just dilute it) and stick it in the freezer. The cold will numb the pain in his gums and the chicken broth will make it his absolute favorite chew toy. When he's done, have another in the freezer so he's always got one to gnaw on. He'll have his adult teeth fully grown around six months. For an added precaution, you can always spray a little bitter apple on the bush if you can't keep an eye on him constantly. Don't chastise a puppy until you know how to teach it the meaning of the word "no". This does NOT involve raising your voice or intimidation. I will be writing a hub on champion training techniques (based on "marker training" if you'd like to do some research) for puppies up to two years old that involve no force, fear, violence or punishment whatsoever.
