Very hyper German Shepherd Dog

by Ashley
(Salt lake city, Utah usa)

I have a white 7 month old german shepherd that I don't want to get fixed, but he get really hyper.

Any time we have visitors he freaks out. Running in circles and jumping. Barking Loud and obnoxiously. He can't even listen to me telling him no because he's so excited.

And this is with visitors we have over very often. Any advice?

Try checking with your vet to see if they can suggest anything that would help calm him down. You also need to try training to help get a handle on him. The longer you wait the harder it will be on both of you.

I don't understand why you don't want to get your GSD fixed but it will help your dog calm down to some degree - your boy is entering his teenage years and is filled with hormones - all new to him.

That's one reason he's hyper - but I can't suggest highly enough that you get your boy into a training class right away to help get him under control before it is too late.

You can learn more about training here:
