Why do dogs eat things they shouldn't?
Dogs explore the world with their mouths and sometimes they accidentally swallow the things they pick up.
Dogs are very intelligent animals that get bored easily. If your dog fills his / her time by chewing, they may swallow something they shouldn’t in the process.
Lack of nutrients
Some dogs have a taste for things that we don’t think of as food, such as poo. This can be a sign that they’re missing out on important nutrients – speak to your vet for advice.
If your dog is stressed, they might comfort themselves by chewing on something they shouldn’t.
Did your dog get a lot of fuss and attention last time they ate something they shouldn’t have? Your dog might have learnt that eating a toy or chowing down on your slippers makes them the center of attention!
