Help!!! My dog keeps eating my underwear!!! We have a three year old Labra-doodle (female)called Lola. We four females (humans) in our household and Lola has habit of seeking out and eating the underwear in the dirty clothes hamper. Whilst this can be embarrassing - it is quite frustrating, today she demolished my teenage daughter's favourite jeans. What can I do???

first off you can get a tall hamper with lid so its not easily accesible to her and spray some bitter apple spray on the lid and hamper bin.
Bitter apple spray doesnt have any smell so wont bother you but dogs dont like the taste and stay away from things sprayed.
Junior loves to chew on clothes too instead i keep him occupied with soft chew toys that takes away his craving for our clothes.
Hope this helps.

Your local Petsmart should have a class you can take to help discourage bad behaviors. In the meantime be super vigilant about closing the door to the room containing the clothes hamper or use baby gates to prevent access.
