Why do my dogs chew on blankets? This is just one of the many things I’m learning about dogs. The blankets being nibbled upon are not only for warmth, but for comfort. Not only do dogs chew on blankets because they are comfortable, but they also do it because they like to “play” with them.
We had a dog named Raccoon that had been given away, and one of the things we thought of doing was to turn her into a blanket gnome. The problem was that in order to turn her into a blanket gnome, she had to have something to gnaw on. If you have too much to chew on, you will end up chewing through it. I think that was the point of the dog.
The truth is that the dog was chewing on blankets because they were cool. I’m a dog person, so I immediately thought of this as the perfect way to make my pet human.

I’m not sure whether this is just a coincidence, but it is really happening. The dog is being a little too keen on blankets.
I think it’s pretty much a case of a dog that is trying to be human and a blanket that is trying to be dog. (It is a blanket, not a blanket, but is a dog.) This is the part of life that I find hardest for me. I do so much research online and read so many different books about how to be happy and successful, yet I can’t seem to figure out how to turn that all off and just be normal.
My dog is the same way. When I was a little kid my mom would take me to the dog park every other day or so with my dad. We’d walk around and my dad would give me sticks to try and get me to “get excited” about the dog. The first one I tried was a long stick. I was so desperate to be “cool” at that point, I just let it get a little long. I’m sure some of you have experienced this.
I like to think most of you have experienced this at one time or another, but like I said, my dad gave me a lot of sticks. He thought I was a weirdo, but I think he was right.
I’m sure this is a problem for many of you, but I think it’s a problem that is especially common among dogs. They are very capable of getting very excited. Some dogs, like mine, actually seem to enjoy it. But I find it really hard to figure out why. It’s probably because the blankets are right next to the dog.
You can read more about this in my article on Why Dogs Like Snacktime. Basically, dogs like to chase the blankets to the dog’s nose. As the dog catches the blankets, it will bark, and you’ll hear the sound of the dog’s teeth on the blankets. If you get close enough to the blanket, you can hear a dog’s tail wag.
