Gus likes anything that smells like us, socks, underwear, shirts, shoes, our pillows, etc.. Up stairs all door are kept closed at all times to keep things safe. its been a few weeks since his last dethreading.
Nicky has not had the opportunity to steal socks or underwear because the clean ones are in closed dresser drawers and the dirty ones are in a hamper that has a lid. I can now leave shoes out and he doesn't touch them. Sometimes he'll steal a kitchen towel that is hung on the oven door handle, but even that's rare now. He seems to know what's his to play with and what's not.
Abbey loves socks. We have to be so careful. It is one of her favorite steals! The second is a bucket we have full of corks from good bottles of wine. I had to move that into a room that is off limits.
well it sounds like doodles can be quite the thieves!
I consider myself lucky now that Sadie only goes for the socks. I guess she likes the smell, although she has been know to snatch clean ones from the laundry basket before they get put away, so it's not just the stinky smell she likes.
That's one thing Cinnamon didn't have access to when she was a pup, so she didn't get a "taste" for them. But, she didn't chew rugs, pillows or couches. She got our slippers, shoes, wood furniture and woodwork, but no socks.
Boyd at almost two years has mastered the art of sock stealing. I can hide them in the bottom of the laundry basket or underneath a pile of clothes and he will find them. He even took a pair out of my husband's zipped gym bag, yes, it was zipped and Boyd got the zipper open!!
What I love is once he has the sock(s) he will quietly slink away and go to his bed to chew on them. As if we don't know what he's done!! :lol:
Cacao likes many things socks the most. But she will take underwear, house slippers, stuff animals (they do look a lot like her's), and she can even take socks off my boys. She waits till they are watching tv and not watching her, she just takes a bite and runs. It is a game to her I think.
