suckling
by: Anonymous

My jack is ten and he always does this before he naps...it's no big deal. It's kind of like a child that sucks it's thumb while napping.

sucking on blanket
by: Shana

Has your Jack always done this? If this is something that he has always done, there is not much to worry about. Many dogs who were taken early from their Mom before fully weaning often exhibit this kind of nursing behavior. However, if this is something new, you should probably take your Jack to the vet. Any new behavior that is out of the ordinary should be evaluated because it could be medically related. Sometimes dogs that are stressed exhibit obsessive compulsive behaviors - it could also be that.
