I am just lamenting really. Lately Mia has been really doing well turning on and off when I need her to. She sleeps a lot more and chews on bully sticks nicely and really only bugs me if we've done NOTHING that day. I mean, she's still hyper and always has been and is STILL unable to be left uncontained because she'll destroy things.... but she's been better. As a pup and up until about 3 years old she was nonstop literally in a way I have personally never had a dog be. I mean... just never stopped doing something. But in the last 1.5 years she's seemed to reign it in. Every now and then she has days where she drives me batty. Today is one of those days. I was gone less than half my usual work day. We got a walk, we got 30 mins of agility practice a piece, she ate her two meals in food toys, and we played 30 minutes of non-stop fetch. Last night we did agility for 1.5 hours at the field and over the weekend we did 2 long hikes. Tonight she was on crack. Screaming at the top of her lungs, squeaking tennis balls for hours on end, throwing things at my face, barking nonstop for as long as I ignored her, zoomies around the house, redirecting on Summer.... I think what is frustrating is that I don't see a pattern at all to pinpoint when she has these total wild child moments. Amount of exercise and work doesn't seem to be the factor. We can have days of nothing and she's fine or we may exercise her a lot one day and she is still a nutcase (or vice-versa) Luckily she turns off if you force her to. I put her in a down stay and told her to cool it and within about 10 minutes she had stopped panting and fidgeting. Now she is asleep. But I LITERALLY have to put her somewhere and not let her move. You can't ignore these 'sessions' out of her, she will just keep screaming and being thoroughly obnoxious. Anyways, not sure what I'm looking for. Commiseration? Ideas? The closest thing I can think of is a toddler pitching a fit- that is almost exactly what it seems like to me.
