Dog is acting strange. Ideas?

Recommended Posts


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.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
