Your dog may chew the rug or fuzzy clothing because of teething if she is a puppy or she just wants to bite on something that won't hurt her. Try to give her an appropriate sized rawhide or chew toy so that she won't ruin any furniture in the house.

Are you home while she does this? Maybe separation anxiety? I would continue to offer toys and chews. I love the Nyla bones!
