So, your pup seems to be unable to stop himself from chasing his tail. It seems like every time you turn around, your pup is spinning in circles biting at his tail and simply saying "Stop it!" is having absolutely no effect. He could be chasing his tail out of boredom or simply because he is overcome with excitement. There are even a few medical conditions that can cause him to chase his tail, such as dry skin, a flea infestation, or an injury that itches as it heals.
Depending on the training method you choose, you need to catch the behavior as soon as it starts, or you may be too late for him to correct his behavior. The good news is that with a little practice, your pup can be taught that chasing his tail is not an acceptable behavior.
The first thing you need to do is STOP laughing when you see your pup chasing his tail. What might seem silly to you is serious business to your dog, and if you keep laughing at him, you are simply reinforcing this behavior. This can actually lead to a type of obsessive-compulsive behavior that can be triggered by anxiety or stress.
Many dogs will simply grow out of this behavior, but others will need training to teach them how to stop chasing their tails. Not only can it be bad for your pup, but with all that spinning around, something is sure to get broken. Add to this that obsessive tail chasing can lead to other types of OCD behavior. With this in mind, the sooner you can start working on this training, the better it will be for your pup and the rest of your household.
Before you worry about training your pup to stop chasing his tail, he needs to have mastered the basic commands. This will make it much easier for you to work on training him to leave his tail alone. The hardest part of all for most dog owners is losing the fun they had watching their up spin in crazy circles. For this, you won't need much in the way of supplies, but you will need a few things like:
Face it, training your pup to stop spinning in circles chasing his tail is not the easiest thing in the world. It will take plenty of time and patience if you want this training to succeed.
Well When I got him I fed him an exclusivly vegan diet so not a single animal would die just to feed him. I am vegan myself and believe everyone else should be, as well as thier animals. He is doing very well and as you can see is not starving as result of the diet. I will continue this behavior because it is whats right
Whenever I would come home from my construction job i would take a massive shit. Now Peaches here would chase her curly-ass tail and piss off the cat, and the cat would claw the jesus out of my recliner. Now if a man has to inturupt his shit all hell will break loose. So i started putting them in the basement during my shits; however, the cat sprayed his piss all over the walls after getting upset once again by the dog Chaising her tail. So peaches beagn to sit with me as i dropped hot cakes, as seen in the picture above. She ended up passing away after the basement flodded and she was stuck in her kennel. She drowned to deathand slowly ran out of air. THe cat survuved houwever by clinging to Peaches body.
One day I saw a sign for a dog, who was old and fat. So i picked him up. His name was Bert. I took him home and right away I knew there would be trouble. I have another dog and also a cat that have lived together in harmony. But the day Bert came home, the cat went missing. It took a few days but he finally showed up as bones in the dogs large piles of manure. I decided enough was enough. I fed Bert until he could no longer walk, abd then layed him down in the middle of a busy highway, at night. Long story short, I no longer like fat dogs. Oh and he stopped chasing his tail.
Well we had him for a good twelve years, but whenever our Alexa played Despacito he would chase his tail and knock over stuff. So we werent going to go without despacito so long story short we play despacito without interuption. We gave him to the pound.
Well, He would't stop chasin his tail, so i took him out back to the still shed and beat him with a two by four. He still wouldnt stop so I tied him up to the hitch of the family pickup. It was a hot day in nevada and i went to go get a case of beer from the gas station. I put her in nuetral and heard a yelp from behind the truck. But i kept going because my truck makes lots of noises. it wasnt until the ride home i realized a limp body whipping around behind me being dragged on the hitch. so i pulled over and saw rocky's lifeless body. I did what any good pet owner would do, i raised a beer in his name and got another dog from the animal shelter. too bad i rolled the truck on gthe way home.
He wouldn't stop so I shot him.
