Yes, my wonderful little 13 month girl just ate a huge hole that's a little larger than a tennis ball, and all the way to the concrete, in my carpet. Whenever I leave her alone out of the crate, she ends up eating or chewing up something. This was by far the worst she's accomplished so far, and scariest because I know this type of eating can easily kill her.
I'm wondering how on earth I can nip this behavior away immediately, and fix whatever issue she's having. I take her on a 1-2 mile hike almost daily, so I don't think lack of exercise is it. I have a feeling a few of you will suggest crate training, which she's been doing for a few months to help with the potty training (which has gone well). Although I am okay with continuing this training, I'm not entirely sure if this will actually fix the underlying problem, or simply stop her from doing it until she grows out of it.
Thanks for all your help in advance!
