    Long story short, my dog has recently become very strange since we gave him a extremely meaty bone! He has begun to come upstairs when he wasn't meant to, scratch my mum and my bed up and claw the flooring boards. As he was a working gundog he is very well trained and never did anything like this before. :confused: Please help! Thanks :p

    I've got a working lab. How old is he? sound's like his bored and pushing his luck to be honest with you:)

    He is 4 years of age but he never shows any signs of boredness in the day though? :confused: I am very confuddled...

    About 2 and a half hours of walking a day and usually a bone sometimes.

    Do you maintain his training?

    Could be that he needs to be set a few boundaries, and have his brain worked a bit more.

    I wouldnt have thought a bone would cause behavioural issues such as yours is exhibiting.

    Are you sure it's a behavioural issue and that he is not trying to tell you something?
    Like you've got mice ;)

    is he trying to hide the bone?. sound's like your walking him enough. I'd still sujest you keep his training up even if his not working:)
