|SunCzarina||I have a nearly 6 y/o male who's never outgrown his obsession with the sunspot off the patio screen door. He's better than he was at a year old but he's still obsessed. Door had to be replaced and rehung in the opposite direction, he's still obsessed no matter what I try to distract him with. Even the beloved ball doesn't do it.|

Hi, yes this is why im getting abit worried as iv searched accross sites saying about ocd behaviours and that it can send dogs crazy!?? No weve never used a laser but at first it started when she caught eye of a football match on the tv :-) and then she went crazy over a family members watch reflection on the ceiling! Now its any reflection/ any shadow! She nearly ripped a door off its hinges by jumping to get the shadow! How do i counter act this problem?? I try to distract her but shes completely zoned out and fixated! Really strange! Would a behaviourist help? Is this something She will grow out of?
Many thanks x

Help 1 year old gsd shadow chasing obsession!?
Hi, my beautiful pedigree gsd who we rehomed 3 months ago, she has a lovely temperment... But recently has become crazy over shadow chasing!? Is this a common problem?
She also barks eccsessively in our home on occasions with her hackles up.. Think shes protecting our house, occasionally may be a cat or something she hears?
She goes crazy around airfreshners/ any kind of spray bottle??
She has 1 hour/ 2 hour walks a day. And not left alone for more than 4/5 hours.
But generally she is brillant, very soft natured, loves everybody& children and obediant.
(We have done the basic training ourselves since weve had her)
Many thanks x
