Tail Chasing

Yesterday Person came home smelling of a German Shepherd. I could smell that he was a very Mixed Up German Shepherd.

His name is Max.

Max has a Habit that he Can't Stop. He does this Habit nearly all the time.

You know when Max is going to start his Habit. He Sniffs his Tail. Then he starts going Round and Round and Round and Round in Circles, Chasing his Tail. Chewing his Tail. He has very little hair on his Tail now.

Max goes Round and Round and Round whenever there is any Noise. Max goes Round and Round and Round whenever Persons talk a little loudly. Max goes Round and Round and Round whenever he's off lead out on a Walk. Sometimes Max goes Round and Round and Round for no reason at all.

This is driving his Persons MAD.

Sometimes I go Round and Round and Chase my Tail. This is when I can't get Monty the Mont or Marmite to Chase me in the Field.

Poor Max lived in Rescue Kennels for 6 months and he's only one year old. Person says Max Can't Cope yet with being part of a pack, so she is teaching Max's Persons Dog Listening so that they can Help him. Max's Persons will try not to shout STOP any more when he goes Round and Round and Round. Each time he goes Round and Round they will say nothing at all. They will hold him gently for a minute, or when he goes Round and Round they will call him to them and speak kindly to him. They will keep him Calm.

Max is a Lucky Dog now because he has Persons who Love him. His Persons are learning how to show Max that they are the Alpha Wolves. They will make all the Decisions. They will look after him. Max need not Worry any more.

Soon Max will Stop going Round and Round and Chasing and Chewing his Tail.

When I went OUTSIDE yesterday morning it was SNOWING! Here I am trying to make Monty the Month Chase me.
