Dear Pets.ca

I have a new Dalmatian puppy (3 months old) She is extremely active and always wants to play. This is fine with us, and we take her for hour-long walks at least twice a day. The problem is at night. She seems to be up most of the night running around the house, chasing socks, ripping clothing, and even barking a bit at the window. This wakes us up and makes us tired in the mornings.

Is there some kind of natural sedative (not too strong) we can give her before bedtime? Or do you have any suggestions?





What we have here are signs of puppy teething. At 3 months of age, puppy molars start to erupt. This can cause pain, discomfort and aggressive reactions, especially during the night.

A homeopathic remedy called CAMILIA, sold by Boiron, works wonders for teething. Give it at bed time or as needed. You should find that product at the drugstore.
If you can't find it, replace with: Belladonna 5CH, + Chamomilla 9CH and + Ferrum Phos 5 CH, 3 granules of each at night or as needed.

Have you tried crating the dog at night with a thin sheet over the top and hanging down 2 or 3 sides and then ignore any whining or whatever? It will get worse at first but she will learn. I had a dalmatian for 11 years and she was a wonderful but demanding dog. They need heaps of exercise and then a consistant life with lots of gentle handling but a true leader. Never let her lead you or demand attention from you. She must work for every morsel of food and learn who is boss. On the other hand, they need gentle handling and never hit them. They will "shut down". This means they will act as if they are stupid and ignore commands, but they are actually very very smart and very sensitive to rough handling. My girl outsmarted me many times. It was embarassing. Take her to lots of training classes and socialization at dog parks. I lost my girl last september and I'm still not over her. She was truly a remarkable creature and one of the few real loves of my life. I wish you luck and it will all be worth it. Dal's are one of God's masterpieces.-Linda
