Puppy digs on the rug, digs on the hardwood floor

And outside he likes to do a bit of digging and dirt eating. The inside digging action is more rare but I am wondering if it is some kind of indicator.

I am not sure what the digging inside means. The first night we had Joey he tried to dig through the carpet of the bedroom we were sleeping in at my parents house. Hes never done it since then. I would think it could maybe stress related.

does your puppy lay down after he/she does this? my puppy does this too but she lays down like she is making a nice comfy bed for herself. its even funnier when she has a blanket and does this.

My dog dug as a pup, when he first came home and was still getting used to our routine. Unfortunately, he didn't dig the floors, he dug up my bed!:eek:

We're waaaay past that now though. It was just him adjusting...

What kind of dog do you have? I've heard that jack russell's and other rat terrier type dogs like to dig.
