Puppy Chasing Bugs
Hi! My puppy is 3months and 1 week old and very obedient... unless he's chasing a bug outside. Bugs are usually fireflies at night and moths during the day. He gets so intent on chasing the bug that he doesn't even turn his head when I call him. Is there any way to break this behavior? I'm afraid that it will cause him to suddenly sprint under a moving car or some other danger.
I've been giving him treats and praise every time he does turn his head, but often times his want for the bug is greater than for the treat. He does get a decent amount of exercise, 2-3 short walks a day (I don't go far because he still needs his third vaccination), and basic training everyday.
