Why Do Dogs Like to Chew on Sticks?

For a number of reasons, canines like chewing on sticks. Dogs naturally nibble on bones, whether they are 

wild or tamed. Dogs like chewing sticks because they mimic bones and the texture is enjoyable to bite on

or carry around in their jaws. That chewing on objects also helps to keep teeth clean by removing plaque. In 

 addition to relieving annoyance, anxiety, or boredom, chewing can also be used to treat tooth-related

discomfort, such as that caused by dental disease in adults or teething in pups. However, rewarding your dog

for carrying a large stick or making fun of how foolish your dog seems while holding a stick in their mouth may lead them to believe that this behavior is okay.
