My 4 and half month old puppy has a tendency of scavenging.
How do stop it?
It's a bad habit that makes him tear rubbish bags...

Recently he even went for a bag that had small bones that could be dangerous to him.:(
Hope didn't swallow any.

He's a puppy, they get into stuff, keep it out of his reach and him contained safely if you can't watch him or you will end up with a hurt, sick or obstructed puppy.

Thanks,
I am trying to move things out of his reach. The bag he went for was in a place that was previously out of his reach but he seems to have grown to reach it.

I thought there is something I can do to discourage the behaviour.

Well you can correct him and give him something appropriate to chew on and play with if you are there, but if you aren't watching him anything you don't want eaten should be put up or the puppy should be crated or contained in some way.
