    Hi,

    I have an almost 10-month old male puppy who up until very recently was coming along with some basic obedience. Over the last week he has begun to rebel by jumping up on me when we are trying to walk, pulling on the leash, crying and barking in his crate, jumping all over the kids and in general just being a pest. He now has all of his “equipment” so I wasn’t sure if this may be a hormal thing or perhaps rabies vaccinosis. He just sooo crazy lately that he is far from a pleasure to be around.

    Anyone have any suggestions or advice. I’m still doing obedience training with him, but I really need to find a way to get him to calm down.

    BTW, he is a lab mix and is about 60-70 lbs.

    Thanks!

    Hi Carol. Sounds like a combination of both sexual maturity and trying to shift the dominance hierarchy (where you should be top dog).

    If this behavior can not be dealt with behaviorally (through your trainer) then you definitely need to treat the vaccinosis issue with a vet homeopath.

    I would not recommend neutering as the next step because doing so could artifically suppress the symptom. Look at [url]http://theavh.org/referral/index.php[/url] for a referral.
