Jack sucking NEW
by: Celine

Blanket, bed or toy sucking in canines seems to be the doggy equivalent as thumb sucking in children. This occurs in a handful of dogs, but it seems to be something they do not grow out of as they get older.Dogs that do this usually find something soft and cuddly, often a soft toy or a piece of their bed or fur fabric or other soft material and curl up with it in their beds. If it is not quite the right shape, they may push it around with their paws and mold it until it fits into their mouth.
Some just hold their favorite object in their mouths, while others actively suck on it.
A few dogs will even knead with their paws while they do this. This continues until they fall asleep.

Once they start this habit, it seems to continue throughout their adult life. It's nothing to be worried or alarmed about, just an ingrained habit that your Jack has.
