Why does my dog like eating clothes?
It is also possible, although rare, that your dog might be suffering from a nutritional deficiency, parasites, or a digestive disorder that has started his clothes eating habit.
Sometimes dogs that are bored or anxious may develop a compulsive disorder known as pica, where they start eating non food items.
Dogs also lick because they like the taste of an owner's salty skin and out of habit.
Mostly, with domestic Dogs, it's a sign of affection.
Licking releases pleasurable endorphins which gives Dogs a feeling of comfort and pleasure — like the feeling people get when they are biting their nails — it relieves stress.
Perhaps the best way to stop the problem is through training and environmental management methods, including:
- Keep the dog's living area clean, including the yard, so there will be no poops for him to pick up.
- Cat owners should keep that litter box clean or out of the dog's reach.
