puppy zoomies?

I saw a reference in this forum recently to the "zoomies" - the puppy acts crazy, running around and misbehaving. My 10-week old petite goldendoodle acts like this - on a regular schedule for about an hour in the early evening.

Is there an explanation for that one hour (perhaps the stories on the evening news?)?

          control her bladder yet. I agree, get her out a lot before the zoomies are coming and instantly afterwards.

            young females' bladders and urethra just aren't mature till 3 months or more, so you may get a dribble or accident during excitement (zoomies or meet & greets) Have no fear, these pups train up early ... more

          Should grow out of this also. You may want to take her out before she gets them, one of mine would have them after eating..
