Our dog will freak out and run around that house for about 5 minutes every night. He gets crazy eyes too. Usually it happens around the same time so we just make sure everything is out of his way so he doesn’t pull things with cords onto the ground (he’s only 8 lbs so he can’t really destroy anything).

Your dog probably just needs more interaction or exercise – that way he’ll be tired and won’t feel the need to go crazy.

Yep, our puppy gets them too! We have taken him to puppy training and they taught us a trick called ‘watch me’. What you do is get a treat in your hand, call your puppies name so they stop and look at you, then put the treat by their nose and draw the treat up to your nose so your puppy is now looking you directly in your eyes…the whole time say ‘puppies name…Watch me’! Keep working on this until your puppy can stare at your eyes for 10+ seconds. Sounds silly, but it works, gets your puppy to focus again. Also, might be a sign your puppies needs a walk or ball thrown to them or something to burn off the extra energy, but get them to calm down first before taking them on a walk, otherwise they will begin to think that by them getting hyper they get a walk, and trust me, you don’t want that.

Are you crate training him? Our puppy does this. We call it “going on a tear” because that’s exactly what it is like. He seems to totally lose all sense of what’s around him and does laps around whatever room we’re in. He will not respond to his name and chasing him makes it even worse lol. If we do catch him, he does try to bite. It’s like he’s completely lost his mind!!! Anyways, when we catch him we put him in his crate. We’ve found that this can be a signal that he is tired and needs a nap. He usually falls asleep right away once in his crate.

I LOL’d at the thought of Crazy Eyes.  Our puppy does this too, but he’s so small that it’s hilarious.  He just FLIES all over the room.  And then totally passes out.  LOL
