Question:

: I have a one year old JR and she constantly walks in circles. She has been doing this since she was a puppy. We used to crate her, and she would walk in circles in her crate all the time. Is this why she is still doing this? Is there anyway to make her stop?


Response:

Dear Abby,

Since your JRT has been exhibiting this behavior since she was a pup, I doubt the crate caused it. I recommend that you have her thoroughly examined by your vet to rule out any medical condition that may be causing her circling. If she gets a clean bill of health, you'll want to contact a behaviorist for a personal evaluation and training program.

Best of luck,
Leslie
