I think it's probably anxiety, given how anxious Bella is in general.

However when my dogs are bored and have nothing else to do, they will try find other ways to entertain themselves...this often involves trying to get things off tables / shelves to chew or if paper to shred. Raiden (4 months old) will stop in his tracks and chew 'naughty' things (footstool, blankets etc) if we aren't watching him closely or keeping him busy and entertained. When that happens we redirect to a toy. We supervise our dogs (it's rare they're ever loose in the house without us watching for more than a few minutes, even if we're just in the room next door), we keep them stimulated and, when we can't watch them, they go in their crates with Kongs and Nylabones :)

Our three love antlers, half a dozen different Nylabones, frozen Kongs etc etc. And in times of stress, chewing really helps them wind down.
