Why Is My Dog Chewing on the Sofa?

How many of us have arrived home eagerly to see our dog only to find a disaster waiting for us? Often, we may wonder why our dogs betray us in this manner. Whenever dogs act out in this manner, they are trying to communicate something to us. Another issue with this is the fact that we get home after the destruction takes place, and most of us then want to punish the dog. The dog may not associate the punishment with the destruction they did. This can also make their anxiety go up and end in more destruction of their surroundings.
