My standard Drea loves to eat her own hair.

It looks real ugly because the places she loves to eat her own hair is her back and front two ankles..

How would you treat this and fix..?

Have you tried bitter apple? Is there a trigger that you have noticed? SOme dogs to things like that because of stress or anxiety. Have you taken her to the vet to make sure it is not a skin problem like allergies or SA?

I agree with Armani Our Golden Retriever does the same thing because she has seasonal allergies. She also needs to be bathed with oatmeal shampoo to help alleviate it.

I agree it could be allergies or boredom

My son's show german shepherd started that and that was a big nono. We used the bitter apple for about 2 weeks and he stopped and hasn't done it anymore.
