OK so DJ will eat anything & everything.
I've removed his blanket, or what was left of it. He was pooing a good 3ins of bedding a day!
He ate Santa's head & hand - I'm guessing it's no pressies for DJ next year - this made him sick, then he ate the sick before I could get to it (ewww!)
He stole a garlic bread baton (whilst I watched) from the worktop & sat with it sticking out of his mouth like a cigar in front of me
Two pairs of my daughters shoes, she shouldn't have left laying around
A CD, which he had to open a container to get to
The cutlery from the drainer, again I was in the kitchen at the time
On a more worrying note: Today he has consumed all but the top & base of a soda can. I gave him bread & milk and called the vet who suggests I watch him carefully tonight and take him in for an X-ray tomorrow morning.
We are really careful about watching him or containing him but he is a fast & sneaky kleptomaniac & once he has something we cannot get it away from him.
We have taught him leave it & he responds to this providing you tell him before he actually gets to it. Any suggestions PLEEESE, this is driving me nuts & I'm really worried. No matter how careful you are, you can't empty the house!
This picture is DJ in disgrace, told off for stealing & he thinks he's hiding!
You need to teach "drop it!" for once he already has something
in his mouth and might need to crate him for times you cant
keep an eye on him !
I would tether him to me and immediately intervene when he moves to get a forbidden object. You need to teach him to LEAVE IT and DROP IT and also do a better job of puppy proofing the area.
Tethering him will cramp his style in a big way.
