*Just* like my human kids...

Tux has been spending a lot of time in his ex pen today due to biting and growling. When my kids were little, almost everytime I sent them to time out, they'd fall asleep. Well, whattaya know, my fur baby's the same!

Yeah, Kodi was never a nippy puppy, but when he got very wild and out of control when he was very small, it was usually a sign that he was over tired. He was very much like a little child, and seemed to wind himself up in an effort to fight off sleep! I also found that he had a definite "witching hour", right around 5-6 PM, again, just like a small child. He would ramp up into his MOST wild, out of bounds behavior just when I was trying to get supper cooked for the family. He did grow out of it, though!

We often say around here, that the reason they are so cute as puppies is that they'd never live to adulthood if they weren't!

On the good side of things, he hasn't had any accidents in 48 hours! (But seriously the nipping is driving us all crazy...)

So sweet! I have noticed that when Leo gets overtired he "wired" gets like children do when they get too tired. If I calmly pick him up and hold him gently against me he seems to calm down and will usually fall asleep. That being said I am not also trying to handle young children. When my children were little and we had young dogs, it was always a challenge because they tended to excite each other. Tux's puppy time will pass and he and the children will likely be best buddies.

What a sweetie pie. I would watch out for him jumping on the crate and climbing out. Maddie got out even without the crate she just climbed right out. She ended up hurting herself so be careful.

Same experience I had w/Kallie when she was a baby. I couldn't figure out why she'd get so wild in the evenings. So I'd try playing with her a lot. I could see that just made her worse. Lightbulb moment - she's too wound up to settle down. This stage doesn't last too long. They get into a routine pretty quick. Kallie would take a nap around 7:00 every evening. That helped her a lot.

Gizmo is three and still has what we call Havanese hour almost every night between 6 and 7. Bella just tries to stay out of his way to keep from being bowled over.
