PostSubject: Help - My boy is behaving strangely!   Sun 18 Sep 2011, 2:11 pm

My 2 year old staff boy has started to behave very strangely on walks. He is normally very good off the lead, chasing and retrieving balls etc but the last 4 days have been terrible.

He has started running off and not doing a thing he is told.

Is this some kind of stroppy teenager syndrome or something I should be worried about? Please help!

That's what I was thinking. Has he bin done. My boy did this before we got him done. We was going to get him done anyway but as he was doing the same your dog has we went to the vet and they said it's best to get him done now. A male dog smelling a bitch on heat is a nightmare. They will run away to find them. My boy ran away when he was just 5 months old and took my OH half a day to find him. He has never ran off since he's bin done.

Have you changed his food recently? I can't feed Elsdon on a particular range of dog food as it completely alters him and makes him hyper.

He hasn't been done yet, was trying to avoid it to be honest!

I have another male who is 5 and has had pups, he is fine so was unsure if this was the cause.

I guess this might be the final straw, may need to get him done now.

Thanks guys

But Buddy does this from time to time, his been neutered too. When he does it, he is kept on lead for a few walks after, then it clicks back in to what his meant to do.

Ive heard of grown dogs going back to toileting in houses etc, they do sometimes forget basics, so Id say its back to teaching him for a couple of weeks so he remembers. spinner smile

Oh dear terrible 2's - they are now a teenager in our years and dogscan start to misbehave and at times go back to basics with training -

It is normal so its nothing you are doing wrong and your boy isnt been naughty - but you do have to reaffirm the rules so to speak - a long line maybe required as recall around 2 years old seems to fly out of the window lol xx
