Where's my gorgeous doggie gone?
All of a sudden she is a nightmare with other dogs and children. She's not aggressive at all but, while we are on our walks, if any children approach her or if any dog comes near her she goes psycho. She looks like she is over excited, she leaps form side to side and backwards and forwards and is generally uncontrollable. If we just walk straight past a dog she isn't too bad but if we stop to talk she's all over the place. Having said that, once she has got it out of her system she will calm down. This started happening about a week ago.
She is just over 5 months old, is this an age thing? Has anyone any advice about what steps I can take to stop her doing this? She's not so bad when she is off lead but at the moment have stopped letting her off as she is too unpredictable. This was probably why she didn't come when we were at the beach the other day (other post).
Any other people's dogs go through this stage?
