Do Vizsla pups ever settle?
We have a vibrant, independent, mischievous, confident, stubborn and loving 7 month old Vizsla!
She is great 70% of the time with her training but we have no hope when she has the crazy eyes!
She is placid and beautiful when she is slightly tired before and after a nap, or cruising around the home. We have always wanted an energetic dog and are so happy with her.
She is very energetic, but rough, jumpy and mouthy all other times. We are noticing that she nips out of frustration, never in aggression. E.g
- will jump and gently nip hand if she is impatient for food
- is not allowed to greet someone if she’s not settled
- if she is playing and she over reacts to someone’s hand/foot nearby (person not engaged in playing)
- if she is on the couch and refuses to get “off”
We do not punish her, rather redirect her. But are worried this is a sign of future nips!
Will this behaviours settle as she matures around 2-3 years of age? Or is this a personality trait we will have for ever!
What was your v like as a puppy and how are they now as adults?
