Our GSD has become obsessed with watching reflections and chasing shadows. She can be distracted by it momentarily, but then goes right back to the behavior. Anyone else ever experienced this? Any advice on ways to break this behavior?

Did you ever happen to play with her with a lasar pointer? I ask because almost all the dog's I've heard of this happening with were at some point exposed to that.

More exercise and mental stimulation needed along with redirecting with a toy, food or obedience exercise.

This sounds like a real mental health issue that you will likely need help addressing by a trainer, vet or behavioralist. Or all three. I agree on the laser pointer as well. This seems to be a common side effect of that popular "toy".
