Be positive when you are using toys, if they are chewing on something that they are allowed to, let them know that that's ok. Now as far as if they are chewing on something they are not supposed to, you can use deterrents like something like bitter apple spray or something that tastes bitter. Check with your vet to make sure it's appropriate. The other tricks that you can use as well, is a spray bottle with water in it, and when it's chewing on something that they are not suppose to you can squirt them with it, it makes a hissing sound.
