Hi Hudhunter.

When doing OB training I use a ball as a lure. Had to do all training at home on known grounds. When he's elsewhere he gets to high. Have to keep his drive down as he will tear at the ball inside the jacket pocket while heeling and if corrected too harshly will go into handler aggression. Sweet dog most of the time but once stimulated he goes overboard. My wife brushed him outside last evening and I had to intervene as he was objecting by tearing at her clothes. He does not do that with me. Funny thing, indoors or outside, if you look him in the eye and he does not know what you want his eyes will dilate and contract many times in succession. When he's in the house and has been fed he is a calm dog. As a matter of fact he's sleeping on my feet right now as I'm typing this. Calm environment, calm dog.

I realize that people who have never seen this in a dog cannot understand this. Probably time to close this thread as, as the vet told me, pathological hyperkineses is untreatable. Some try with drugs but success is not very high dog showing strong symptoms.

Thanks to all who tried to be helpful.

Koach, can we take it that even though your vet has put a name to it, this 'pathological hyperkinesis' is also undiagnosable by any physical test ?
