Is your dog obsessed with squirrels?

Hoboken411 Mascot suffers borderline sickness

As you might have seen in this week’s archived photo gallery of Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar – that squirrels made a few appearances. Usually in shots where he was extremely focused and eager.

Well, my adorable pooch is getting worse with these critters. Not only does he remember each and every location he’s ever spotted one (and does a thorough check of the area, day or night) – he’s started becoming nutty even with anything that resembles a squirrel – like these figurines in the window at the Bliss Spa at the W Hotel.

Does your dog go bonkers when he or she sees one?

They bury nuts on our block, in our backyards :), and come for them in the winter months. Sometimes I feed them cereal and granola.

My dog hated these bushy tailed rats,she wouldn’t bark or growl but she would catch them. Then after she killed them she would bury them in the backyard. These critters though that by running along the fence they could escape, no way. The dog would run into the fence to cause them to fall if they fell on her side she dispatch them.

Very.

Squirrels and cats. My pit mix is very, very obedient 99% of the time. Follows every command. But when theres a squirrel or cat around, I have no control. And like Oscar, he remembers every spot he’s ever seen a squirrel. I’ve tried correcting him with a little tug of the leash and Sssst! and thats helped some but ultimately, the instinct for some breeds, especially terriers, is to hunt small prey.

Oddly enough, I used to live in Clifton and we had tons of rabbits running around. He never cared about those.
