samantha suffers from doggie OCD, or CD for compulsive behavior. She chases lights and shadows obsessively, usually in the evening after I get home, she barks at the floor and bites it, and it is apparently fun for her, but not so much for us. We love her more than anything, and have spent alot of time researching this and trying different behavior techniques and meds, with little result. She is very spunky and loveable, just sometimes pretty crazy, hence the name "crack doggie" Her brothers love her and play with her, but when she is in her chasing shadows mode they pretty much leave her alone--if they could say so I think they would say"ooh ooh, there she goes again, a little craaazy.." Anyone else out there have this?

Forums Motto:
'just gimme a light or shadow to chase
