I have an 11 month old female Beagle. For the past month, she's been dragging her bed around everywhere she goes in the house. She even drags it up onto the couch, sometimes humping it, while biting a corner of the bed. She even falls asleep in the bed, while biting the corner of the bed. Why?

Don't know why they do it by my 9month old even takes his bed outside if I leave the door open for him, I am always having to wash it. Could be a comfort thing like small children with comforter blankets.

Bodie who's a year in a half at times still plays with his dog bed like it's a toy. We had to buy Kong brand dog beds or he'd rip through them.

What we do when he starts ripping into his bed is squirt him with a 3:1 vinegar and water solution and he'll stop. We do the same thing when he digs in the trash or barks incessantly. Since we've started doing that we've seen a drastic decrease in these negative behaviors. We might only have to squirt him a few times a week now.

Our guys drag their beds around too and throw them around the house! They seem to enjoy it! :)

Charlie did this, and we observed as to why? we come to see that to Charlie that WAS HIS and only His and he wanted to keep it safe with him, keep an eye on it.......I even wanted to make sure so where he dragged it, I put it back where I wanted it, and he was looking at me , then he went to it, looked at me making sure it was ok to take it were he wanted it, I pretended to ignore him, then he drag the bed again to whereever he was, time passed i ignored it.......then i would always place it back where I wanted it.......then it became a circle event.\haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaha

I have recently experienced this with our 8 1/2 week old. We gave her a towel to put upon her very large dog bed (far too heavy for her to drag). Yesterday she dragged the towel to the other side of the room, then proceeded to grab every toy she owns and piled them on top of the towel. It was beyond hilarious!
