9mos old is always rough housing with the 8yr old and bites his ears and beard. Older one is so passive and does not put pup in her place.Also, she is so hyper and barks so much on walks when she sees other dogs or people. Jumps on the people and actually jumps up in the air about 3 ft. The Vet gave us clomacalm for daily use and Ace when she is really up to high level. No one in our neighborhood wants her around their dogs and they do not like her due to her jumping up. We went to training with her and she passed. Trainer suggested agility with her and that it would tire her out. She was excellent in the agility class and jumped over and through it all. Went through the tunnels. Came home and slept all afternoon. Was awesome but it is $20 a class and we can't keep that up . we try to keep up her obedience commands but when she meets people or dogs, it is like we have no control of her. We never have had a Schnauzer like her and we have had them for 35yrs now... Any help for a very well bred HYPER Schnauzer.
Yes, you got a hyper one. And being young this is quite normal. Obedience and a leash are your tools!! No need to drug this dog, it is quite normal. and as you can see a tired dog is a well behaved dog. Try running through all the obedience exercises each evening and in situations where she will meet people keep her in a sit stay or down stay using leash. MANY high strung dogs are obedience challenges, but they can learn with consistency and as they become more mature.
