Why Do Dogs Like Socks? 5 Reasons And 2 Tips For Prevention


When a dog is bored, the only solution seems to be playing with your socks.

It Feels Good When They Chew

This is common behavior for teething puppies as chewing is a part of that process.

Separation Anxiety

Your scent can make your dog feel reassured and less anxious until you come back.

Desire For Attention

Your dog might have noticed that taking a pair of socks to chew on them will surely get you to look at them and chase them.

Love For You

When your dog chews on your socks, it reminds them of the feeling when they are all wrapped up like a burrito in a soft blanket with their favorite human – you.
