Aww man, really? Zoomies are the best imo. I don't think dogs totally outgrow them. Mine all get them from time to time. Is it the zoomies bothering you specifically?

Zoomies are awesome I live them and hope my boy doesn't outgrow them. He hasn't yet and he is 5. Although I did read zoomies are a confidence or lack of confidence issue not sure I believe it though.

Oh, I hope that's not true!

I can't see how it could be a lack of confidence issue... Our boy didn't do it when we first adopted him, but started about a year later. He was playing with my son and just started running in big circles around the den with a huge goofy smile on his face! Seems to me that would be a building of confidence, not a lack of. He finally did it outside this weekend with my sister's puppy in the front yard... it was amazingly cute & had me laughing with tears running down my face.

Pobs is around 5-7 yrs old, and I really hope he never stops this. To me it's a sign of a happy dog!

Yeah i don't believe its a lack of confidence either, but rather a display of sheer happiness or excitement. Cookie does it everyday when she comes in from using the bathroom, and ices and roller do it on their chain spots when they get taken out and have relieved themselves. I can't recall ever owning a dog that hasn't had the zoomies and i know my old mutt girl who is 12 yrs old and lives with my ex husband still gets the zoomies at her age.

If you want your dog to outgrow being happy, then maybe the dog is better off with someone else.
That's a bit melodramatic :rolleyes:

I love Xena's zoomies, she runs in circles around the yard with the funniest look on her face! Eko had them when he was a puppy, too. He doesn't do it anymore, it's an individual dog thing. Enjoy them while they last, when your dog is gone I bet you will miss the zoomies. :(

The OP states that he/she wants to get rid of the dog, it's not me being dramatic.

The way you said it was dramatic, OP seems to be a kid and didn't understand zoomies are more out of happiness than energy, so he doesn't want the dog to outgrow being happy, just out of the excess energy, which is understandable. I don't think the dog is getting rehomed if the mom said no.

Zoomies are the best and a daily source of laughter for me. As has already been stated, enjoy them and enjoy the fact the your dog is happy and healthy enough to experience this burst of energy.
