Turning In Circles Before Going Out A Door And Before Coming In A Door

by Jen
(Missouri)

We just got a 7+ month old male red merle who I have recently noticed has to turn in at least one circle before he will go outside through a door or go inside through a door. Is this a normal behavior? Not sure what started this, he also has a slight problem with going down stairs, no problem going up them though. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

round and round she goes
by: Terry

We are blessed to have a 2 yr old red merle name of Sadie. We got her at 2 months and she has been going round and round ever since. There are time she will twirl herself all the way across the deck which is 20 feet and there are times when we walk to get the paper, which is about 150 feet, that she will twirl all the way out and back. She can jump and do a 360 in the air.

She is 100% in love with life and celebrates it 24/7. She is the apple of her Daddy's eye...

Cricket's circles

It's the craziest but cutest thing. I don't know why our 6 year old turns in circles at some stops and before going into the house. It's as if he has to get a full perspective of his surroundings before venturing forth.
