Chewing is a stress relief/comfort as much as anything.
If a dog is teething it will chew on ANYTHING.
If a dog is bored, it will chew.
But mostly, "because they can" is as good of answer as any of the above.
Jasper likes to chew occasionally, but doesn't go out of his way to.
Whereas Cyrus goes berserk when a log/branch/twig is found! Or rather did, when he got to walk around without a muzzle. Mind you he still tries, and that in itself is a funny sight!
