Question:

My pup Penny is 9 months old she is totally obsessed with reflections and shadows. I can"t get her to come in when she is in her obsessed mode , her tail wags and her body shakes as she tries to get these reflections. I have to close the blinds in the afternoon because of the sun shinning through. When she is outside she will come to the door because she knows that when I open it the sun will hit it and change the direction of the reflection. smart little pup. If she sees my husbands watch on his wrist she goes nuts waiting for him to move it she knows that this too will cause a reflection. Is this obsessive compulsive disorder and how can I stop this if at all possible, is this bad for her. Please advise I'm very worried for my Penny pup.
