Hyperactive Pups and Dogs - Phone  07811 454 602

There are a few reasons that may cause hyperactivity in pups and older dogs

 

 

Hyperactivity from food - just like kids, dogs can be affected by food

 

Boredom - Possibly being left on their own too long or just an intelligent dog that needs mental stimualtion, being kept in during it's critical socialisation period for a puppy can result in a hyper pup as they are just not getting enough input to tire their brains out.

 

Lack of Exercise - Being afraid to let your dog off lead can result in a hyper dog, see a dog trainer. Constantly being on lead is boring and the wrong kind of exercise to tire your dog. It's also in contravention of the Animal Welfare Bill.

 

Overstimulation - Pups need to rest and sleep, a busy household with young children (or adults) that never leaving the pup alone can lead to hyperactivity and attention seeking behaviour.

 

A combination of some or all of the above reasons - This does happen and can be very difficult to deal with the longer it goes on for the harder it is to correct the behaviour.

Is your dog difficult to deal with, not listening to you, won't do what you want? Been to classes, read books, watched DVD's, took everyone's advice and nothing seems to work? Is having your dog no longer a pleasure? Are you exhausted trying to keep up with their behavior? If so they may be hyperactive.
