Shadow has been eating his blankets that we put in his kennel! He poops it out and sometimes will throw it up. How can I get him to stop this? i want him to have a soft area to sleep on but i dont want him to eat it! i have removed everything in the meantime so he doesnt have the option to eat anything.

That's a tough one. Emma did the same thing when she was a puppy. We just ended up taking the blanket out of her crate. It might not have been as comfy without the blankets but it was more comfortable then getting a bowel obstruction. The only other thing I can thing of is Bitter Apple Spray. It never worked for our dogs, they actually seemed to like it, but I know other people who claimed it did work.

I use a spray called bitter yuck, same concept but it seems to work better than bitter apple. either way, i would prefer not to have to waste a whole bottle every day spraying his blankets. i may just have to leave the blankets out :(

It might reduce as he gets older, or it could be transferred to chew toys if it is through boredom. And sometimes dogs prefer to sleep on a hard/cool surface. Ruby chews one blanket she has, but I am sure it is only once she gets bored with the toys in that room with her, and it is getting less as she grows up.

p.s. I think Ruby is only a week or so older than Shadow, she was born Jan 2nd, he would have been born around then, right? lol
