At the rescue my pup and his littermates chewed on a linoleum flooring that was tearing loose. Since he has been home he paws at and tries to chew my ceramic tile in the same way. I just tell him no when I catch him at it but he still tries every once in a while. It was just something he learned he could get away with as a baby and hasn't figured out that ceramic tile doesn't work the same way.

I would guess he is teething and when he was younger he felt that the floors made his teeth feel good?

Prob teething. It's just weird cause he scrapes his teeth along it and pushes his jaw on it... Like you can hear the sheering in his teeth when he does it

But he just started doing it today... We were just sitting on the floor and he started licking the tile and scraping his teeth on, honestly looks painful

I recall one of my pups scratching,"digging" and gnawing on a particular area which was carpeted....thought maybe something was buried under the house....but weeks later after really thinking about it...I discovered I was on the second floor.....oh, the pup eventually quit and I believe I was easily able to distract her into a more productive activity.
