Pet Tips

Tip – 9 – Puppies chasing their tails – Should you be concerned?

Even though it may look like puppy has gone bonkers when he/she furiously chases its own tail, this is fairly normal behaviour. It is usually seen after the puppy has been separated from its littermates. Puppy is just playing by itself, since there are no more littermates to play with. The puppy probably doesn’t yet realize that this tail is its own. The puppy should grow out of this behaviour as it grows up. Provided there is no discomfort in the activity, there is little cause for concern.

If this behaviour bothers you however, simply playing with it or exercising him/her, is the perfect refocusing tool.

Remember you as the pet owner are the puppy’s favorite source of entertainment.
