Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering Max has these little running fits now and then where he runs very fast from room to room. Why is this I say? There is no exact time or day it just happens. I was just wondering if any one else has the Zoomies with their Maltese. Is this an attention getter or is he just playing or is he just one crazy dog...lol :Waiting:

Mine do that too,they just get that burst of energy and just can't contain it.It just leaks out and they gotta run w/ it. It's so cute... Even my cocker spaniel does it.

We call it "psycho dog" at our house but I like "zoomies". This is very normal and I love to watch my two girls do this. They take turns chasing each other and it's so fun to watch. I'm glad they have this self-exercising feature as I can't always get out and walk them and they really enjoy doing this. If I blow air in my Lily's face, she will give a little woof, and take off!:chili:

My dogs used to do this when they were younger and we had carpeting.

Now Ava is the only one who will zoom back and forth through the house landing on throw rugs at either end!!! She gets so excited, and I always tell her to "Fly like the wind!" She usually starts when someone acts like they're going to "get her".....she loves that game. :wub:

Consider it normal, and enjoy it! It means they are happy and healthy! I love it when Micky does it. And like Ava, he loves the "get me" game. You pretend like you're chasing them, and they just take off like little mad men/women.

Ah, the zoomies. I didn't know that they were common or normal until I found SM. My Lily does it. In fact that is how I arrived at my SM moniker, GOPOTSGO. I sometimes call Lily, LilyPot, because she is beautiful like a flower, and when she gets the zoomies I egg her on with "GO POTS GO!", and she goes even faster! Love that doggy.

We call Tyler "Turbo Dog" when he does it. So crazy and so funny and we never know when it will happen. Though sometimes if I jump just a little in the air Tyler will go into turbo dog mode. He must think I'm crazy for jumping. :HistericalSmiley:

Yes, "zoomies" are very normal. Haley sometimes does them BEFORE I take her out first thing in the morning (she has great bladder control!). At night when she gets them, she'll run soo fast in figure 8's around my living room and dining room. If I am sitting, she'll jump right over my legs. She's very good about avoiding all obstacles. I can intiate them by trying to catch her or moving towards her suddenly - she loves it and it is soo cute and crazy. (She also does them after baths - she goes insane)

Ahh the zoomies, I love them. Leo is my zoomer for sure and I crack up each time. He mostly does it when I take him out back, oh the happy little look he has on his face....I think it's perfectly normal, great exercise and to me, just shows how happy they are.

Mia will zoom a little in the yard, but sometimes, she will just stop in her tracks to watch Leo, it's just too funny.

Enjoy!

Mine all do it. We call it going "Puppy Kong". It does make me laugh.

And Lacie, especially, loves the "I'm going to get you" game. If I clap my hands and start chasing her, she really goes "Puppy Kong". LOL
