Are you aware of the energy levels of your dog? It took me a while to figure out that my little crazydog Maddie was altogether less crazy if I wore her out on a consistent daily basis.
And if I didn’t wear her out? It would be 11:30 at night and she’s running circles around the house at top speed. So, knowing Maddie’s energy level, I don’t have anyone to blame but myself if I don’t provide her with enough physically and mentally stimulating activities during the day. Of course, a healthy dose of love and attention are also required to keep her happy.
