Toilet Paper Fascination

As a younger puppy, Zumba was naturally interested in the toilet paper, as expected. She went after it for about 3 weeks, and then seemingly forgot about it. For months. At about her 1 year mark, a few weeks back, she has become enraptured again with the toilet paper. She has gotten time outs to emphasize this is a no-no. That doesnít help. We put the toilet paper on the top of the toilet to deter her, but yesterday, she jumped up on the toilet seat to go get it. Itís such a silly thing for which to ask for help, but I donít understand why after all this time we are fighting the toilet paper attraction again. And how long will this phase last?

Don't know but I love it that Zumba is so resourceful! I think you need to get a video of this for us to see!

So do we - - when we remember. Haha! We go in there for something quick and forget to shut the door. Zumba is QUICK. I think she has a radar that tells her when that door has been left open! It doesnít help that it has two doors for us to remember to keep closed. I guess we need to train the humans instead of the dog, ha!

Shadow stares at the toilet paper like a long lost friend. I "think" one of his previous owners gave him a talking to about TP and it's proper uses! He was the proudest Hav when he managed to snag an empty roll from the garbage pail! Proudly marched to his bed with his treasure until it was suddenly snatched away!
I think all dogs have a liking for TP as puppies. Your little Hav is a very clever girl! How I'd love to see her in action!

Mine seems to have outgrown most shredding but he loves toilet paper and paper towel. After shopping i used to split up the huge packs of toilet paper and leave them outside the bathroom doors for whichever kid with bathroom chores to put away. Not anymore! But any time someone cleans up a mess with paper towel itís very intriguing.

That is one sweet, happy Hav with her treasures!
What is it about TP that dogs love?
