run in cirlces when he is excited.  Not small circles (like how some dogs chase their tales), rather large circles around a sofa or the whole room or front yard.  Just curious

<p>lol- My dog does this too. When she's in a playful mood, I get on my hands and knees and crouch to her level.(mimicking a dog)&nbsp;She then runs a circle around me, then around the living room couches, dining room table, back to me. It's funny. Then she usually charges at me head on and licks my face. <img alt="" src="/fckEditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/teeth_smile.gif" />&nbsp;We call this her "cheetah running."</p>
<p>I think it's their way of playing. </p>

<p>What kind of dog is it? You have to take note of the dogs body posture, because &nbsp;my sheltie does this when he gets pent up frustration about something, then he takes off and spins circles. Big and little. Taking him for walks usually brings down this behavior. Yesterday I was so busy he did not get a walk and he was a little beast. I had forgotten how he was without one...</p>
<p>While my other dog does this in the backyard when she is playing and having fun. </p>

<p>Don't mean to hi-jack but mine does something similar. When ever she is let her out of her crate or someone comes to the door she runs up to them, folds her self into a little U (while standing) and just wiggles like she is going to come out of her skin. If you try to walk up to her and pick her up or anything she keeps moving forward it's really funny....</p>
<p>When she gets hyper and wants to play she does her "crazy dog" - she will do figures 8's. Around the coffee table into the dinging room and around the table there and back. Sometimes she will even go upstairs and run from one side to the other then back down - for a 20lb dog she sounds like a heard of elephants...</p>

<p>Mine runs in circles around the living room and because it's a small house and a&nbsp;good-sized mastiff...... people scatter very quickly when he starts. I found that if I hold up his leash when he starts and ask if he wants to go out, he stops and comes barreling for the leash.&nbsp;I usually get knocked over by him coming for the leash because his paws slide on our commercial carpet and he is beyond excited, but I get a free face wash out of it! </p>
<p>I find he doesn't do it anywhere near as often if given plenty of exercise. Sometimes he is just plain excited though, usually if he has been in his crate for 1-2 hours while we are gone.</p>
