Ball obsession - oral fixation
I have an 8 month old female jrt named clover. She is well behaved in almost all instances but has an absolute obsession with fetch. She wil throw the ball at our feet for hours on end if we dont throw it. She wont stop playing fetch no matter how tired she gets. If we take the ball from her she goes into a morbid depression until she gets it back.... im talking days of pining for it. If we take the ball away she then obsesses on chewing a rubber kong toy we have untill its made her drool so much her mouth issoaked, even her paws get drenched in slobber. Im at my wits end... she is either driving us CRAZY with the ball or miserable.... can anyone help??
