New Bad Habit

Scout has started chewing on our Golden Retriever's fur. It must not be bothering the Golden because she is not complaining. But, I am finding clumps of the Golden's fur around the house and even some in Scout's poop. I don't think this is good for either dog.

Any ideas on how to break this new bad habit?

I think she means that the little dog is eating the big dogs hair and pooping it out. I agree with kara, spray the dog to see if that helps!

Sorry to say - it didnt work for me. Logan is CONSTANTLY chewing, sucking on Lexi and also gets hair in the poop (not a lot since Lexi does not shed) but I think he pulls some of it out. It seems to be an affectionate thing as Lexi does not push him away most times. The problem is that she is soaking wet and getting matted. I sprayed her (from my hands) with bitter apple, it didnt do a thing!! But I do have some puppy cologne that my guys hate, so I am going to try that & see how it works. Although I feel bad for Lexi as she is the one who is going to get it on her. We tried reprimanding, pulling him away when he does it, but he just cant seem to grasp that we dont want him to do it . He is joined at the hip to his sister.
