Good Morning Marc and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. Even the very smart poodles , as puppies, everything is a treat or play thing. These critters that Bronx finds are something new and exciting and he will go after them and then not really know what to do with them. AS Bronx matures, these things will become boring and he will leave them alone. Training is key, even at his young age. Sweet Bronx sounds like a normal puppy, Marc. He will do great! Does that make sense to you? Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****
