Default When do they start calming down? lol

Carl is almost 11 weeks old and usually around 6:30-7:00 pm he gets really hyper. We're always watching TV or hanging out in the living room at this time so we have him with us, with a blanket and all his toys for him to play with. But he gets really hyper and likes to chew on the carpet and bite people and run around like a crazy boy! If we put him in the kitchen with his toys he cries and cries to come out and play.
I know it's because he's a puppy and he can't help it- but my mom's getting frustrated at his hyperactivity lol.
At what age do they usually calm down more; mellow out a little?

I know that chi's get the zoomies and spurts of energy, but my guy has a spurt of energy for like...30 minutes straight at night lol.

he sounds like a normal puppy to me . i havent noticed my chis being more hyper than most dogs their age (actually bigger dogs seem to be more hyper to me) but i think it mainly depends on the personality of each dog. maybe you should have him run around a little more during the day so hes not super hyper later in the evening. you could try a nice long walk too.

peanut gets really hyper at night too. but i have noticed when i take him on long walks during the day, or when he plays with another dog, he is very calm at night, and pretty sleepy. maybe your puppy just needs to go on a long walk to get rid of some of that extra energy. they say a well excersised puppy is a lot easier to train as well.

haha, we call it the zoomies...and it NEVER ends *evil laugh*
for us it usually occirs about 10-10:30 pm at night (yup right before bedtime) and lasts anything between 1/2 hour and 45 mins on average. at which point they run round crazy talk alot (dodger is a talker) trow things about and generally zoom and crash into walls or table legs...or people legs...lol
we find it quite comical to watch, especially since my parents 3 yr old spaniel also gets the zoomies. around the same time.

its very normal, however the only rela way to combat the zoomies and lessen them is to make sure he gets LOTS of excersize during the day... my kids go out for a 1/2 hour outside playtime most days and 1 hr one day a weekend. and they still get the zoomies...

id try and sit back and enjoy it...lol its quite funny to watch.

hell probbaly start mellowing around 5-6 yrs old but even that mellowing usually isnt too much, these little guys dont realy slow down much untill there teens...and your looking at a lifespan of somewhere around 25 yrs with these little guys if not more...so they take a little longer to slow down

Definitely normal for puppies to get all hyper. My baby runs a little marathon each night. I call it the "zoomies," as do some other people on this forum because my baby "zooms" around at 100 mph and nothing can stop her once she starts. It's probably a puppy thing, but chihuahuas can be pretty hyper active. I personally find it to be very entertaining when my baby does this, and she usually ends up wearing herself down and then she's definitely ready to hit the sack at bedtime. Good luck with your baby and enjoy!! =)

Well, my Harley has just turned 6 mos. old and he still does exactly that. Last night was one of those nights. He had the zoomies something fierce. He can really be a sight when he's in that hyper mood.
