A few months ago my partner and I bought our pug, Doug (just over a year old) a blue, spikey, squeaky ball. He absolutely loves it. After a while the ball lost its squeak... So we stupidly kept replacing them. He has just become so attached... Sometimes I think he likes it more than food If you're sitting on the couch he will continue to pick it up and drop it on you until you'll throw it, dropping it on your face, lap or wherever. He does it to anybody. Especially new people who will cave and throw it for a while. But he constantly thinks about it. When we go to bed (yes, he sleeps with us) he'll have to go find it and bring it along with him so he knows its safe and the first thing he does after breakfast is goes looking for it. He will honestly play for hours and keep playing fetch with it if you continue to keep throwing it. If you try hide it he will search high and low sniffing around until he finds it and we'll cry and carry on until you give it back. What should I do? Should I just throw them (we have two atm) away or would that be cruel? Is this just behaviour related? We give him so much attention.. Well we try to... but hes so focused on the ball that he doesn't really care about us anymore Open to suggestions. He is also quite stubborn so we're still learning in terms of discipline in regards to teaching him when its ball time and when its not. Thanks.
