There are several ways you can train you dog to stop (yelling is useless and one should never hit the dog.)

Dogs can chew because they are frustrated. For instance, if you are at work even part-time it's best to get your dog out for a good run and they'll be too tired to chew. Dogs can get lonely and if it's a large dog very restless and need to stretch those muscles. If in doubt as to how your dog feels, think of how you would feel sitting around a house all day without much exercise. Letting your dog out into the backyard is not exercise. Dogs love to smell and run through the grass or on beaches or trails.

If the dog is still persistent in chewing then shake your finger at the dog and say "Bad Dog" (dogs are intelligent creatures and understand more words than humans give them credit for) and then put him in a kennel (with blanket inside) for 20 minutes. Keep being persistent with this because the dog will get the message. If you don't have a kennel buy one from any pet groomer because they are cheaper by far there. Then disinfect it (they are usually pretty clean, but I always clean them again).

Another way to do this is if you catch the dog chewing on your furniture, shoes, etc., take a clean squirt bottle full of cold water and when you catch the dog chewing squirt him in the face twice. Keep at it. Be persistent and it will work. I just trained a 6 month old from this and I used the kennel method.

How do you stop dogs from chewing itself constantly?

If a dog is chewing itself constantly that is usually an indication that something is itching the dog and the chewing is done to try and alleviate the itching. In order to stop this you have to find out why the dog is itching, usually it is because of dry skin, or it can have a sore on its body. For dry skin it would be a good idea to buy food that is especially formulated to help dogs with dry skin, and to buy oil to put on the dog's food. But otherwise it would be a good idea to take the dog to the vet to make sure why the dog is chewing.
