This is Ziggy's mom. Does anyone else have a dog that still sucks? Ziggy sucks on his sleeping pillow and will suck on his toys. He kneads his paws into whatever he's sucking on also. Does anyone have a dog that does this also? Does anyone know why? Can this be harmful?

Our Emma the border collie has done this to the duvet at night sometimes and the kneading ..she sort of goes into a trance when doing it,we put it down to her being the runt of the litter..she is 7 years old now though Bless her!..I think the kneading with their paws is part of what they do when they try to get to suckle on a teat from their mums,In Emmas case she was the most deprived..We took her at 7 weeks ols other wise she would never have survived the terrible owner that had her...Another story there!!..anyway I do not think it does any harm and I let her do it..I think it seems to comfort her.Love and kisses xxxxxxxxxxx
