This is really interesting, because Tobie has always chewed his nub also. The breeder I got him from I would NOT recommend, Tobie was malnourished, he had been docked incorrectly and very late in his puppy hood. He will still chew on the nub if he is bored, and I have to keep an eye on it. I didn't know that you could have it padded if necessary. He has a scar, and it will always show, no hair grows there.
I think I'll talk to the vet about it next time we go.
