Is it possible that what she is going after is not the linoleum itself, but molecules of food that have grafted their scent onto the floor? Calypso did tend to attack particular patches of carpet more often, which I attribute to previous residents' dogs or food spills.

FWIW, when Calypso went after bits of carpet I would attack it (after diverting her far, far away) with the same enzymatic cleaner I use for toilet mishaps. I don't know if it genuinely works, scientifically, but the anecdata on my end seems favorable. Maybe worth a try?

P.S. What kind of dog is Bella? I am so in love with her photo!

Bella is a cavalier king Charles cross bichon frise. She is very much like a cavalier just fluffy. I think she looks like a toy dog!

You're right I tried the enzyme spray and she wasn't too keen. Thanks

Calypso is a total cutie. I bet she sheds less than Bella too. I know she is a cross but I thought she would be slightly low shedding as she has the curly bichon coat. But she does shed quite a bit!!!

Remy tore up a good 6 square feet of linoleum in our kitchen and shewed a hole straight through the drywall (I'm not even going to get into the countless other things). I just made sure I got her exercise as she just did it out of boredom really.

I'm making sure she has tons of stuffed kings and other things to chew. She has quite a lot of play in the garden and she has started walking outside now.
