Dog is acting strange. Ideas?

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I have a 7 month old lab. So far she has been a really well behaved pup. She has been very laid back and listens extremely well.

Lately she has been acting kind of wierd. She has been waking me up early in the morning whining at the door. I let her out and she just runs around and comes back to the door. I have been taking her running with me recently and all of a sudden today she wasnt healing at all. She would stop and then other times she would want to run off to the side or up ahead. She also urinated on the floor twice today but she has never done that before. She has also rececently (last week) started chewing on things. She has also been refusing to sit the past couple days. She started jumping up on people in the past couple days too.

Like I said, this is all very unusual for her. She is normally very calm and listens extremely well...

Do you guys have any ideas? My brother suggested she might be going into heat and a friend suggested she might be getting bored inside....? Thanks for any ideas or suggestions you can offer.

Well if she is only 7 months old and has been a great dog at this age you are lucky. Maybe she is just catching up on the naughty puppy stage. I wouldn't think at 7 months that she would be coming into heat just yet, but it isn't unlikely. I am guessing that she is getting bored and needs more activities to keep her occupied. I have a 6 month old Brittney pup now and am running into the same situation as I think she is getting bored since the temps are running a bit too cold to spend to much time out in the yard. My dogs spend the day in the outdoor kennel and we bring them in in the evening and this is when my pup starts bouncing off the walls and furniture. I usually am able to run the dogs out back but with this cold snap they are not to interested in spending much time out doors.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
