If your pet acts in a bizarre way and you can’t figure out why, there is a reason.
If he is circling around chasing his tail, it’s funny to watch but , why is he doing that?
It means he is bored and wants something fun to do. Daily walks and games of fetch will cure his silliness. If you see your pet biting his tail or feet, take him to the vet. It could be a sign of allergies or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Don’t lavish him with affection. It will only reinforce his behavior.

If your dog drags his butt across the floor; It’s caused by worms or encrusted irritation of feces encrusted hair. Another cause is infected or impacted anal glands. Dogs have two large sacs inside their rectum that carry their scent . They usually empty when they go to the bathroom but may become over loaded with material. When they begin to itch, the dog seeks relief by scooting on the floor. A cat sometimes does this too. Take them to a vet or groomer. They need to have their glands expressed.
Races through the house; Again he is probably just bored. He isn’t getting enough exercise and play time. Get him outside and let him run off his energy. Play catch with a Frisbee, and generaly run himself ragged. Cats can get crazy too. In their natural world they would be hunting prey. So if possible let them out to explore and play hide and seek.
