Oh I'm glad my girls are older now but for sure, they still do this! I figure one of them calls the other a bad name, and in an instant, it's like a freight train running through the house and out the yard and back in the house and up on the furniture and under the table and down the stairs and up the stairs

and then they're done

You all know how I love and spoil my babies, I just can't imagine how our members here with more than one pup is staying sane!

Ellie gets excited and barks... Jake starts to howl... can't hear a damn thing! Conversation... Nope! Television... Nope!

Jenny does this more than Monty. She will just get a burst of energy and go tearing through the house barking, or will run the length of the couch barking. Monty used to do it more, too.
My parents dogs, when they were puppies used to act up as soon as anyone wanted to watch tv at night. Barking and biting each other.

Does anyone have a "sure fire" calming method? Ellie has been firing on all cylinders tonight. Wild since I got home at 5:30 and it is non stop! She's eaten, been out, played for hours, still going full tilt at Jake and barking! Their daddy is sick and really doesn't need to endure the constant barking. I have tried everything I can think of, chews, forced belly rubs, playing, holding and singing to her (my voice is not the vest) etc... Its almost 10pm and she is WILD!

She was full tilt last night too, until about midnight, then Jake got the "squirts" and had me up about every 2 hours (better than the alternative of that on the bedroom carpet and stepping in it in the dark!) BUT, I really need to sleep!

Any suggestions are appreciated, and will be tried!

Obedience training, or longer walks. If Bella's being like it we practice training, it refocus's her brain and makes her think, which tires her out, I know Ellie's a baby, but just 10 mins of sit, down, and wait or leave might just make her sleepy.

I also used to take Bella out for 3-4 10-15 minutes walks when she was that age, just around our street, or for a mosey on the grass across the road, nothing too strenuous but enough to tire her out.

Ellie is a smart girl, but if I try to introduce any of our training when she is in this manic phase, she just gets crazier. She seems to learn better when she isn't so Nuts.

I've tried exhausting her with play & walks, she seems to have endless energy until SHE decides she is done... I just am looking for a "calming" trick. Love the little terrorist, but she is going Full Tilt or dead to the world.

Belly rubs and singing/cooing would help Jake as a pup, but we are hostage to Ellie time!

When Olive goes nuts, I remove all jewelry and valuables and take her to "the arena" (aka our huge, open kitchen floor) and give her what she wants! I play fight (as long as she's gentle), sit on the floor and have her chase her rope toy around me over and over and over again, have her do tricks for treats, tickle her, and anything else I can think of. If she's not done by the time my husband comes home, he takes a turn in the arena with her! That usually does the trick.
