Understanding your pet is often times the key to understanding your pet's behaviors. If your pet seems to be a bit over-active, especially this time of year, consider the following reasons when choosing how you interact with them on a daily basis.
Why Is My Pet So Active?
There are four major reasons why you have an over active pet.
1.) If your pet is on any type of medications that can attribute to their restlessness.
2.) Different types of animals require more and others require less types of activities.
3.) Some breeds of dogs desire a more active life style while others are just fine being carried around in your arms like an accessory all day long.
4.) And some pets, such as dogs, will run around and around as soon as they are let back into the house. When your dog does this they are using their body language to say to you. "Please, I will be good don't leave me outside by myself again".
Dog's are not Leopards, which are solitary creatures. Dogs are pack animals. In the wild they will usually live their whole life in the same family unit until they die.
So, if you have a pet don't leave them separated from you...because to them you are their family unit. And the signal that you are sending them when you do that is that they have done something wrong and so you are punishing them by leaving them alone.
