    She may be bored..Are you giving her enough attension!
    Next time you find her doing that replace what ever she is chewing with a toy and reward her for playing with the toy instead..Just generally make playing with a toy a fun time for her

    The carpet digging is probably far more exciting and rewarding than anything you are offereing her.

    Is she food orientated at all?

    ok wot we started off with Kyamwas we wud get the cardboard tube out of a toilet roll and put a treat in the middle and stuff the ends with news paper and leave her to get them out then we put a treat in the middle of each piece of paper to make more smells in diff places as she pulls them out as she got better we stuffed it tighter. Also put some treats in a shoe box and let her figure it out... U cud also put the 2 ideas together...

    Hope these quick ideas help they are simple but Kya loves them
