Dogs Digging on Your Carpet

Nip Tuck Carpet Repair sees a lot of different carpet that has been damaged, many of them being from pets. Both cats and dogs can give you trouble regarding your carpet. Dogs tend to chew carpet, pee in the same spots, and what we are discussing in this article, they can dig. What causes a dog to dig though? These tips will help you be able to properly stop your dog from digging into your carpet and therefore stop the damage he is doing to your carpet.

  1. Too Hot or Too Cold?

Dogs behave off instinct because they are animals. Other members of the dog family, like wolves, dig dens that will help to shelter their babies from weather and harsh elements. This den would help them to keep warm from the cold and to cool off from the summer heat. This lends itself to why your dog might be digging into your carpet. Put simply they could be too hot or cold. So, when this happens try to understand what your dog’s needs are.

  1. Bored much?

Some dogs tend to rip up pieces of carpet just because they are bored. If this is the case for your dog then it is advantageous to get your dog some toys or chew bones that he can have during the day while you’re gone. This will help to put his mind and energy on other things rather than your yummy carpet. Another thing that you can do is get a stuffed animal that you sleep with at night. The stuffed animal will then begin to smell like you and quickly become his favorite toy if you’re the person they bonded with.

  1. When are you going to be home?

Another reason that your beloved dog might be doing this is because of separation anxiety. The stuffed animal that I mentioned above will help with this. There are also other things that can help such as thunder shirts. These help with fear and anxiety by applying the right pressure in the right place on your dog’s torso.

There are many reasons as to why your dog may be digging into your carpet. These are just a few. It’s best to find out what the reason is for your dog’s behavior and then take the appropriate action.
