Yordie sucking corners of cushions
Hi
Has anybody come across this problem before? My daughter has a miniature Yorkie (not a teacup) who is about 4 years' old. she has a problem with him in that he sucks the corners of any and all cushions and pillows (after he has eaten which is Hills Science Diet), to such an extent that eventually the material is so soggy that it falls apart!!!??? Help, she is at her wits' end. He sems to be a rather obsessive dog and whatever he does he does constantly, not only the sucking of the cushions.

Any advice from CyberVet?

Thanks

This is not normal behaviour. Is he often left alone on his own?
