Why is my dog digging in my couch? Breed heritage isn’t the only reason dogs dig. Just as humans might search beneath sofa cushions for lost change, your dog may sniff out stray bits of popcorn and want to dig it out. Some dogs cache important objects and use the couch to hide their favorite dog toys and protect them from being swiped.
Why is my dog trying to dig on my bed? It’s Territorial
That’s right, your bed-scratching furry family member is marking your new bed as his territory. As with many other animals, dogs have scent glands on the bottom of their paws, and these secrete a pheromone that lets other animals know that’s their territory.
Why do dogs dig on beds and blankets? The reason why almost every dog digs at their bed is that it’s a natural instinct in order to make a comfortable, warm place to lie down.
How do dogs know their bed is theirs? They often “look” for a resting spot that smells like their owner (or other members of their “pack”). This was a prime sensory experience we needed to consider when making a mattress for them. Surroundings are also incredibly important.
