Odd Staring Behavior
Garbo is our 2nd Aussie, a 4 year old rescued stray we've had for 7 months, so we know nothing about her background. We just started working with a behavior consultant to treat her separation and confinement anxieties. But that's not the behavior I hope I can gain insights here and I mentioned them just in case they're related.
The odd behavior is that she stares at her image in reflective objects such as wine glasses, cabinet hardware, stainless steel wall plate covers, etc. In addition, she sometimes moves a rug or drying rag (we live in Olympia) with her nose trying to cover the object. Never mirrors, though.
