My 6 month old indie male puppy was very Clam dog but all of sudden he started the destructive behavior. He do not have separation anxiety but all of sudden he started tearing sofa… breaking things etc. I m unable to understand what happened to him. I m following all rituals please help sunny
It happens during this phase of the puppy, testosterone starts building up which gives a surge of energy that makes the dog unstable if we are not able to help the dog release the energy constructively.
Indies and other high-energy dogs are more prone to this behavior but this can happen with any dog.
You need to start taking your dog on a long structured walk, he will also require outings in a natural terrain like trekking or hiking, bicycling with him can also help you in releasing his energy constructively.
