How can I calm down my 9 month old rott? She can be sweet one minute and the next running around the house like she is wild.
My last rott was not this way. I got her at 10 weeks. Did she get taken away from her Mom to soon?
At 9 months your Rottie is a ‘teenager’, possibly even a ‘tween’, and this sort of erratic behavior isn’t uncommon!
All pups are different and it’s unlikely that two dogs will behave the same way, but just about all puppies have ‘wild’ times.
One thing I would suggest, is to make sure that she’s getting plenty of exercise during the day, and that she has plenty of sturdy chew toys (see my Tough Dog Toys page for some of the best!).
Pups tend to build up a lot of ‘nervous energy’ during the day, and exercise and chewing are the ways that they release this normally. If they don’t have the opportunities to do this, they can get a bit ‘hyper’.
If your pup has her ‘wild’ times in the evening (something I call the ‘puppy crazies’), this is probably what is going on and she will outgrow it eventually.
Hope this helps some. Best of luck with your puppy.
