I have a 6 month old Boxer mix, female. She is definitely very playful, but i have a question about her behavior with digging. (I use the term "digging" bc it best describes the action, although she isn't technically digging through anything to). Ok, so we keep a blanket or the floor for my puppy, she takes it in and out of her crate and sleeps with it, etc. but she also does this if I am sitting on the floor with a blanket.
She digs *furiously* at the blanket until she is pretty much out of breath which is usually about 30-45 seconds. Then she takes the side of her face and lays it on the spot she was digging for about 10-15 seconds. Then the cycle repeats.
I am not so much concerned with stopping this behavior as of right now as I am trying to understand why she does this. Is this something innate? Or is she just being a silly puppy?
Any and all feedback will be helpful!
