Thread: 1 1/2yr old,neutered male suckles on some of his stuffed animals

  1. #1

    Default 1 1/2yr old,neutered male suckles on some of his stuffed animals

    Neutered at 9 months and has no other behavior issues..
    Other than being a bit clingy,a 58lb lap dog,he's a good guy.

    but he suckles his stuffed animals and I wonder why.. I have never seen a dog do this.


    thanks

    I think about half of the bulldogs here suckle, mine included and he's not neutered and 15 months.
    There's a video here of a bullie suckling. Cutest thing. I don't think it means anything, just comforts them.

    Here's a thread on it with lots of pics http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...light=suckling

    I have had several dogs, who were not Bulldogs, who did this. One of my Bullies does this, but she carries it too far, and once she had the toy soggy, tries swallowing it. I've had to take the "stuffies' away.

    Harlea suckles on her Romeo before her afternoon nap and Brett for about 30 minutes before she goes to bed at night. In her crate she has her pink monster that she snuggles up to and suckles on as well. These are the only stuffies that do not get immediately destroyed.

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Mines doing this as I'm typing this post. It's very common from what I've read.

    My boy suckles too. I still haven't figured out his system of deciding which toys are for suckling and which are to be destroyed immediately.

    Vegas will be 5 next month and has had this monkey for 3 years, he suckles it several times a day, but especially at night to calm himself.

    It's a pacifying effect for our bullies, just like thumb-sucking is for kids. Tate suckles his stuffies and Finn suckles his football
