ZOOMIES / FRAPs

Another behavior you may encounter during the Ranking Stage and into the Adolescence Stage is known as FRAPs which stands for Frenetic Random Activity Periods. FRAPS are what pet parents refer to as The Zoomies, The Crazies, or Circling.

This behavior can occur at any age but because it’s the result of pent-up energy, it usually occurs with puppies or young dogs. Puppies that are crated excessively or don’t get enough exercise may be more prone to exhibit the Zoomies.
