    Default Does your pup chase "ghost" frogs, bugs,etc?

    Just wondering if anyone else has this problem. I say it is a problem because my dog is obsessed with it. A frog once got behind the a/c unit so now I have to put up a fence and chairs. everytime he sees mud he runs after it like it is a frog. Lizards on the fence he chases straight to the fence, almost running through it to catch them. I heard on other threads, ecspecially about playing with lazer lights that it cause health problems because they can never "catch" the lazer. Sometimes I cant even get him inside the house because he is running up and down the fence line trying to catch the ghost.

    Yep. Same thing here. Frogs, cats, opossum, bugs, leaves and all other kinds of stuff. Of it moves Harlea is gonna go after it. If it has gone in hiding she will search for it for awhile then go back to chomping on grass.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Oh yeah! ALL my dogs are obsessed with toads/frogs! If they find one, I have to catch it and while they are stilling looking in the last place it was-I take it somewhere and let it go. I can't let them see me do it.... crickets, ants,grasshoppers,locusts-you name it!

    Try this, when the sun is shining in your home have something shiny under it and aim to the ceiling, watch the want to chase it and bark at it. It's quite funny if he'll go for it!.

    Bo likes to chase "the shiny" that happens in the late afternoon when the sun hits the glass of the screen door that leads to the dog's yard. He can be obsessive about it and I don't want that. Because of how he is, we don't play with lasers. I feel I'd be feeding a fire. LOL

    I also notice that he's more prone to chasing a shiny if he needs exercise - mental/physical. When we've had a nice big outing and they're both tired from all the activity, he's less FAR LESS likely to be interested in "the shiny".
