Puppies are known for their mischievous behavior, but sometimes their excessive activity can become overwhelming and stressful for both the puppy and the owner. In this blog post, we'll explore the phenomenon of "puppy prus" and give you practical tips on how to help your puppy unwind and manage his mischievous behavior.

What is puppy pruritus and how to deal with it?
Puppies are when the puppy gets a sudden burst of energy and runs around, chasing its tail and doing other mischievous activities. It can be a sign that the puppy is overstimulated or stressed and needs help to calm down. Here are some tips on how to deal with puppy distemper in your puppy:

Divert attention:
Try to distract the puppy by offering him a toy or a chew bone to occupy himself with instead of running around and misbehaving.

Ignore unwanted behavior:
If the puppy bites or tries to bite your hands during play, try to keep your hands still and avoid pulling away. By ignoring the behavior, the puppy learns that it does not give it the attention it seeks.

Capture the puppy:
If the puppy is unable to calm itself, you can gently take a firm hold of it and hold it still. Be clear that it is not play by being firm and firm in your grip, but avoid being too heavy-handed.

Wind down the activity level :
A mischievous puppy needs both play and relaxation. Practice switching between activity levels by playing with a toy, rewarding with a treat, and then giving the puppy a moment of peace and relaxation by gently petting it.

Understand your puppy's needs:
Pay attention to the puppy's signals and needs. Puppies can become overwhelmed by too many new impressions or activities. Give them time and space for both play and rest.

Valprus is a normal part of puppy development, but it can be overwhelming and stressful for both puppy and owner. By using distraction techniques, ignoring unwanted behavior, catching the puppy when he needs to unwind, and shifting between activity levels, you can help your puppy manage his mischievous behavior in a positive way. Also pay attention to the puppy's needs and give it time for both play and calm. Remember that every puppy is unique, so adapt training to your puppy's individual needs and personality.
