I have a 1 year old Boxer, he seems never to settle down when someone comes into the house he jumps on them and wont stop, after I pull him off maybe 5 minutes later he will run in and jump on them again. It's more then a jumping problem. He seems not to understand anything we say to him when he is in that state .

Dear Walter,

You are right. When a dog is in an agitated state, it does not listen or think. Diet, treats, and allergies can influence behavior. What do you use in that area? I would give H2O-IONX on the meals and homeopathic Thuja 30C (available from a health store) at bedtime for several weeks. I would also give probiotics. Beneficial flora in the gut can aid influence attitude.

Also sufficient exercise and training can positively affect behavior. It would be nice to take an obedience class and if necessary work with a dog trainer.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
