Anyone else have a Dog with an Obsessive Behavior?

2569

Here is a Question from Kim asking other Boston Terrier owners about obsessive behaviors.

She says : “I have a 3 year female Boston named Nico. She is OBSESSED with licking rocks and bricks. She becomes very frothy in the mouth and almost cross eyed. She’s a rock addict. 

Nico has been checked out by the vet and doesn’t have any GI issues or deficiencies. Our trainer said it is obsessive behaviour and we should try to break her of it by distraction but if it gets worse or distraction doesn’t help she may need to be medicated. I am able to divert easily with distraction but it still happens all the time and I don’t want to medicate her.

Does anyone else have this issue and if so what do you do? Any thoughts, experiences or recommendations? 🙂
