A new poodle puppy of any size will go through a teething period that may seem interminable. In reality, it begins around three weeks of age with the eruption of their first puppy teeth and lasts until eight months, or until all of the baby teeth have fallen out and the adult teeth have emerged.
Teething causes irritated, itchy, and uncomfortable gums in your poodle. Chewing relieves those feelings and diverts their attention away from the discomfort. It is critical to find good teething toys for your poodle; otherwise, that new pillow, your dining room table legs, or a pair of stiletto heels could be the next best thing for soothing irritated puppy gums.
Poodles will experience teething from about 4 months until 8 months.
• 4 Months old – the incisors begin to grow in
• 5 months old – the canine teeth begin to grow in
• 6 months old – the molars begin to grow in
• By 8 months old, a puppy should have all teeth ascended and stop teething. Do keep in mind that some Poodles are late bloomers and teething may last a bit longer.
