So, Jack has these crazy physco moments where he goes crazy through the house jumping on and off the couches, jumping on whoever is sitting on the couch, and nipping. One might say that he isnt getting enough excerise/playtime, but that so isnt the case. Like tonight it just happen, he has been out with us at my sister-in-law running, sort of swimming, and playing with everyone. Sometimes I can understand where it might come from if he didnt get enough playtime or exercise, but 99.99% of the time he does. Getting Jack has gotten me back into shape again!
I know its bad to chase after him, but I have too to get ahold of him. I have to yell "settle" and "sit" numerous amount of times. When he finally gives up I hold him and tell him NO! Or if it was really bad I put him in his kennel for just a few moments to calm down. Sometimes, and I know this is bad, but he is afraid of a tennis racket and the broom, not sure why. But when I have one of these in my hands he gives up automatically. I have NEVER EVER hit him with any item, but he is afriad of the tennis racket and broom.
I done know what else to do to fix this issue. And I dont know why he does this. He does it at different times too. It could the morning, afternoon, evening, or before bed. I need to get this corrected for out sake BUT for my in-laws sake too. We are staying with them until our house is built, which wont be till OCTOBER!! The other day Jack did this to my mother-in-law and she didnt know what to do so she went to her bedroom. When she peeked out to see what he was doing she notice that Jack had her kindle (its like an ipad for those who dont know). He would NOT drop it, so she had to trick him with a treat.
Jack is a pretty good dog but he for sure has his flaws. Any help would be GREAT!! (I think it is time for a trainer to come in)
