Ever since we got Asha 2 years ago she has had this habit of nibbling on things like blankets and bed sheets. It's not chewing it is like how a dog will nibble on themselves when they have an itch and it's not an obsessive behaviour she just does it for a few seconds and then stops.

The behaviour doesn't bother me, I'm just wondering why she does it.

Sounds a bit like a suckling behavior which some dogs do before they go to sleep as an inherited thing they got from puppyhood. Some people say it's a calming behavior to reduce stress, some just say it's a habit from puppyhood they never stopped

I think it's cute, Asha is lovely by the way :)

Ah makes sense it does tend to happen a bit more around bed time. Asha thanks you for your compliment she thinks she's lovely too ;)

Also your dog is cutie.
