    Murphy is still too young to know how or what to do.
    But when we had Lacey she chased birds and oneday she caught it.
    And she sat next to it until I got there then moved away.
    As if to say I can catch then but what do I do next.

    My dog aquired a taste for chilli but she's not fond of vicks vapour rub but that's only practical for things like kitchen counters.

    what about one of these? :: Products

    They're expensive but they're very durable.

    Or something like a squirrel dude loaded with part of the daily ration of food.

    Note - they're not ACDx proof but they do last a fair while.

    Ouch, that is expensive! I'd spend the money if I was sure it would keep my dog busy though.

    A colleague told me they are currently selling ball launchers at Kmart. Apparently the idea is that the dog can load and operate the launcher himself and play fetch without a human present. Nifty, but I would not really trust to leave my dog with a toy like that. I recently read an article about OCD in dogs, especially in relation to fetch obsessions causing dogs stress.

    Sorry, that was really quite off topic!

    There is also a (i love the idea) smokey bacon flavoured bubble machine, that releases bubbles on a timer.

    Hard to obsess about something that pops when you touch it.

    I totally agree with Hyacinth. we have to puppy proof our house.

    I am sorry but I really see no need to puppy proof your house.
    We never kid proofed our house when we had kids or now with Grandkids.
    It all comes down to us being consistant with them. and they really isn't too much different between kids and pups in the house.
    If you say once no to something then from that day on it has to be no.
    Never just sit there and watch them touch or bite something that you have told them no to.
    Even if this means you have to get up and move them away. They will learn what can be or what can't be touched sooner or later.
    It is all donw to you being consistant on every sector of their lives.

    If your dogs eat grass as a new behavior, and are exhibiting frequent vomiting, it’s also important to check with a vet. A dog that suddenly begins to have a taste for grass may be trying to compensate for gastrointestinal problems. This could signify viral or bacterial infections and might require veterinary treatment. On the other hand, when dogs eat grass only occasionally, you can chalk this up to normal canine behavior. A mouthful of grass or two may mean cleaning up some nasty dog messes, but it is unlikely to signify poor dietary health or illness.
