My dog turned 8 months old two weeks ago, and lately he's been acting insane! It's as if I never trained him. He started the hole puppy zoomie thing again, barks at me if I tell him no, snatches things out of my hands. He's also started whining in the car, something he's never done before, and he whines if I make him sit and wait at a bench if we're out for a walk. Is this normal? I'm guessing it is, but how long will it last, and what can I do about it?

BTW, he's not neutered yet. I wanted to wait until he was a year since I plan on doing a lot of hiking and running with him, and I want to be sure to avoid any joint issues.

Dogs do this twice I hear. Sounds like you're going through your second phase, stick with it. It'll get better. You should get your dog neutered before a year is up. We waited a year too and even though Luke is fine, our vet said we should've done it sooner. Anyway, good luck with your dog.
