Dog that suddenly starts chewing shoes?

We have an older dog, he is maybe 6. All of a sudden, he has started chewing on shoes. Any idea what would make a well behaved dog start this?

  • I have 2 answers, 1) he is possibly pissed at you and having separation anxiety or 2) he is lacking a nutrient in his diet.

  • In addition to what nwaskie said, he may be upset by any new changes in the house or he may have developed a cavity.

  • Separation Anxiety. Crate it.

  • Stress or boredom too. Try increasing his daily aerobic exercise.
