Dealing with Excited Dogs

Go to Index

Sometimes dogs behave in a crazy way because of the situation. They bark hysterically, chase their tail, chew stones, groom themselves compulsively and ask you to carry them in your arms.
ADVICE 498
Talk with the veterinary in order to make sure a disease does not cause this behavior and continue with its basic re-education.

EXCESSIVE Dog BARKING

Many dogs are like alarm systems; they bark when they hear unexpected noises.
ADVICE 499
There are dogs, specially the Terrier, Poodle and Lhasa Apso that turn into chronic barkers if they are not taught to domain their hobby.
For hysterical dogs, a shout of "shut up" may sound like an attempt to join their barking.
Solution
Teach the dog the "bark" and "shut up" order once again in an adequate environment.
ADVICE 500
Make an agreement with a friend for them to knock at your door while practicing the exercise. The theatrical gestures are needed sometimes.
ADVICE 501
When the dog barks, put some non-toxic or irritant but unpleasant substance in its mouth, but being careful not to put it on its eyes.
TAIL HUNTING
ADVICE 502
When dogs are too excited, some of them, specially the Bull Terrier, chase their own tail.
ADVICE 503
Even when there is a genetic component on this behavior, it can be control to reduce its frequency.
Solution
ADVICE 504
Divert the tail hunter's attention by offering it another prize. Order it to sit and eat and when it does so, reward it with a chewing toy or a food reward. If the problem persists, ask for the veterinary's advice.
DEMANDING ATTENTION
Sometimes insecure dogs get hysterical if they are not carried in arms, this is more probable on depending dogs, especially when they are in new environments.
ADVICE 505
Some dogs jump trying to lick your face. You shouldn't be tough with these dogs because they need to increase their self-confidence.
Solution
1. If the dog jumps persistently and obsessively, or it scratches you, leave the room silently, the dog will be surprised by your sudden departure.
2. A minute later and while the dog is still calmed, go back and reinforce your control by ordering it to sit. You should reward its good behavior.
COMPULSIVE BEAVIOUR
BARKING
Not all barking is compulsive, most of it normal and natural. The dog barks to welcome the other dogs and us. There are also alarm, threaten and communal barks. The only barking that is bad is the excessive one, the one that can not be controlled.
ADVICE 506
If your dog is doing it, grab it by the neck, look at it on the eyes, shake it fast and firmly and order it "shut up".
LICKING
Licking obsessively the front paws can be a hygiene disease similar to the one in human's in which they wash their hands obsessively.
ADVICE 507
The veterinary will be able to prescribe your dog some specific substance in order to reduce such a disgusting activity. This problem is especially common in the Labrador Retriever and the Doberman.
