Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Greetings, I’m Dr. Peck, a small animal veterinarian in general practice. Hopefully I might be of some help. One moment while I reply…
This doesn't sounds concerning to me as in it doesn't indicate a pathology and it isn't destructive in nature. Does Jordy seem anxious at all? If you leave the toys alone does she continue to move them around or does she leave them in the places she's put them? It's hard to say if she wants them kept there or if she is making a game of moving things for you to put back as a sort of reverse fetch scenario, but either is possible. We do see OCD habits formed in dogs with anxiety, but this seems fairly mild and non-destructive - not hurting anyone or anything in the home. Is it ok with you to have the toys left where she's putting them? Or are you wanting this behavior to stop?
