My dog has an issue. She nibbles constantly on anything she can get her little teeth on. It's not biting, it's nibbling like she'd she'd scratch an itch on herself. It used to not bother us, but now it's to a point where she does it so much she's putting holes in things. She does have a designated nibbling shirt, and I try to redirect as much as possibly, but the amount she nibbles bothers me a bit.

Can this be caused by stress or perhaps fleas? We are battling an awfully stubborn flea problem at the moment. I'm not sure what could be stressing her. She's a bit off right now because of a heat wave and lack of walking (no one lets me walk her at night and it's too hot for her during the day. Silly thing is I'm plenty old enough, but a woman was sexually assaulted not far from my home and the guy was never caught, so everyone is still quite paranoid about it) but it's been going on pretty well since we got her a year ago.

Any help would be appreciated.

She chews on anything that's soft. Blankets, pillows, that sort of thing. She usually leaves clothing alone, except for her shirt, unless you're wearing it. She's not a big kong lover but she will ignore her nylabone to randomly start nibbling on something. Her nylabone is her favourite thing to chew.

The only other person who could walk her with me is mum, and she's not fond of her the dark herself, so she won't. The poor dog just wants to lay around the house all day, the heats getting to her pretty bad. She still gets play time and training inside, and a bit in the yard.
