Hello!

The behaviors of this type can be due to the different causes, like anxiety, lack of stimulation and exercise, involuntary reinforcement, etc.
If the problem occurs in the absence of the owners, you should consider the separation anxiety. If it occurs also in the presence of the owners, it could be due to lack of activity and involuntary reinforcement. This lack of stimulation causes stress problems in pets because they don't meet their needs.

On the other hand, there is a problem called pathological hyperactivity, which requires a particular diagnostic process, but since it is not usual in dogs, it should be ruled out before other possible causes.

Finally, to be sure that it is a behavioral problem exclusively, any medical problems should be ruled out.

Therefore, we recommend you to contact a behavioral specialist (clinical ethologist) so he/she can personally assess Cocoa's problem, determining a diagnosis and appropriate treatment guidelines.

All the best for you and Cocoa.
