Beulah likes to chew/suck on pillows and blankets. She does not chew shoes or other things. (she is 18 months old, lab mix) I have bought her many stuffed animals as those are her favorite thing to play with but this sucking on my blankets is driving me crazy!!
She lies in bed with us and is doing one of two things: licking the sheets and causing the hugest puddle, (soaking down to the mattress) or she is sucking on the edge of the blankets until they get soaked. Sometimes she chews and pulls the edge of the blanket apart, but sometimes it is just sucking.
Any suggestions? I have been shoving one of her stuffed toys in her face so she knows to chew on those instead, but now I think I may just be confusing her. I tell her no and pull the blanket away from her about 100 times, but I swear she doesn't even know she is doing it. Like a kid sucking his thumb. Maybe it's a comfort thing?
Should I put something really gross tasting on the blanket? Keep in mind, I SLEEP in that bed! I thought about getting her a "woobie" (like from Mr. Mom) to suck on, but would that confuse her? Like she can suck on one blanket but not all the others?
