Getting Started Week 26 - Puppy Frenzy
your puppy races around the room and appears to have lost all contact
with planet earth, you are witnessing "puppy frenzy." This
typically occurs at the end of the day after your pup has slept most of
the day away. This is a boomerang effect for the dog who has been alone
and not had any exercise.
Do NOT try to train or teach your dog anything at this time. Wait
it out. This is a great time to take your dog for an exhausting run or
walk on leash off your property. Dogs need the mental stimulation of new
sights, scents, and sounds.
If your puppy bites at your ankles or does other unacceptable behaviors you may
need to leave the room to give your puppy a "time out" to cool
his/her jets. Do NOT scold. This is
normal, happy puppy behavior. Scolding does not make sense to your
puppy at this time.
Sometimes, you can join your pup's play by tossing toys, or patting your puppy's sides as you hold the toy
your puppy has in his or her mouth. Do not try to take
the toy away. Instead, pull your puppy over to another toy and
throw that one.
If your puppy is prone to frenzy, increase companionship, exercise and
play to channel this youthful energy into more acceptable outlets.
