I assume it's not while you're wearing it...

Maybe put your underwear away? ; )

Seems like an oddly unexpected development; sorry I can't help more... pros?

Some dogs start doing this when you have some health problem that they can smell.

Either that or he just noticed it?

Sorry for the personal-ness, but are they in the dirty clothes? Dogs love digging through the dirty clothes because it has your smell. As for why he just started, I have no idea.

As for how to stop it, I have two suggestions.

1. Make sure he has no access to them when you can't supervise him.

2. When you can supervise him, put the basket where he can reach and wait quietly for him to do it. When he starts, correct him immediately. If he stops when you correct him, give him lots of praise.

This usually works fairly well. If he won't do it when you're around...erm....just keep your laundry away from him. :P

It sounds like you are wondering if a vaccination caused him to suddenly find your previously worn garments so interesting. Call your vet and talk to him about it. It could simply be a stress reaction to going to the vet and if you keep the laundry out of his way he'll forget about it.
