We picked up our first Cavalier, Sasha, last Saturday and have spent the week getting to know him. What a doll! Sasha is a male Blenheim and will be 12 weeks old on Sunday. He is so smart! He has already learned to sit and stay, potty on command, (on a lead), and be "quiet" when he barks. We are not new dog owners, (I wrote an intro in the new member section), but new to Cavaliers and we are in love!
Here is my question: Sasha keeps "dominating" one of his toys, a blue octopus. He doesn't do it with any other toy, or with the children, so why the octopus? We've been telling him "Sasha, no!" when he does it, but he just returns to the behavior a minute or two later. Should we let him do it? Should we remove the octopus permanently? Something else?
Thank you for your time. I really appreciate the time you all take to share information. I have learned a lot already.
Here are a few pictures that my son took of Sasha:
Have a wonderful day
