What Is Dog Trancing?
Hello, how are you today? Welcome to our blog About Pets. We hope you are very well and looking forward to a new post about Pets.
Today we want to share with you a special post:
Why is my dog walking slowly?
Any pet owner will tell you that some animals are just outrageous. However, sometimes a few quirks can be seen not just in your dog, but in multiples. Quiet, sometimes called "ghost walking" or "marijuana walking", it is a bit unsettling when the homeowner witnessed it for the first time and it is one of those behaviors.
What is Trancing?
Trancing is when a dog walks cautiously and very slowly under foliage, tablecloths, curtains, etc. so that whatever he is walking is barely touching them.
If you've never seen it before and your dog is starting to make it at home, it can be a bit disconcerting to watch.
Dogs that walk in a trance so slowly, it is as if they are trying to sneak up on something and have their footsteps make little noise. They also appear to be in an almost trance-like state, hence the term "trance."
The trancing is seen frequently enough in bull terriers that some online sources claim it is unique to the breed. However, a simple search for dog trance video clips will quickly debunk that, as there are clearly other dog breeds that have been in a trance while their owners captured it in real-time.
While it is a common theory that all bull terriers are in a trance, it is simply not true. A Bull Terrier may be more predisposed to trance than another breed of dog, but that does not mean that a Bull Terrier is guaranteed for trance and that another breed of dog is not guaranteed for trance.
Is trancing a type of seizure?
Some people, when seeing a dog's trance for the first time, will think that it is some kind of focal seizure. Rest assured that the transition is not a seizure.
A dog that is actively seizing cannot be "taken out" of him by calling him by his name or by giving a simple retrieval order.
However, a dog that is in a trance, even if it is in a "deep" trance, will give at least some kind of reaction to a name call or a recovery command, even if it is just a movement of the ear to hear it better.
Some dog owners who go into trances suspect that their dog actually enjoys this strange behavior, and point out that when they are brought out of their trance, they almost seem a bit upset that they had their episode interrupted.
Most transitional episodes, when uninterrupted, last only a few minutes, and then once the dog is done they immediately return to their normal, happy, tail-wagging state.
This is in direct contrast to when a dog is coming out of a seizure. Dogs suffering from a seizure episode when the seizure itself is over and they are no longer actively convulsing, it can take several minutes to hours to fully return to normal.
Is Trancing a Behavioral Disorder?
There are some owners who might fear that the transition is a behavior disorder itself or the precursor to a disorder such as obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Their fears could be reinforced by the fact that bull terriers, one of the main breeds for transit, are prone to OCD behaviors, such as tail chasing.
A group called BT Neuro, however, surveyed a group of bull terrier owners in 2004 to see if there was any correlation between spanning and tail chasing and they couldn't find any.
So if your Bull Terrier is in a trance but not tail chasing, just because they go into a trance does not automatically mean that he will start tail chasing in the future.
Is Trancing a Learned Behavior?
What if you have a dog in a trance in your home and you want to add another dog to your family? Is transition something that can be learned and learned?
We still know very little about why dogs are in a trance, to begin with, but some multi-dog homeowners have noticed that their non-tranced dogs will begin to go into a trance after seeing the other dog in the house repeatedly exhibiting. behavior.
The new dog may be in a trance under the same element that the first dog went into a trance under, but often one dog will prefer to go into a trance under an element (such as a houseplant of some kind) while another dog prefers to enter. in a trance under a completely different item (such as fabric or beaded curtains).
Quiet, although it is a strange quirk for a dog, it seems to be just that: a quirk. What is clear is that the transition is not life-threatening, is not a precursor or predisposition to the manifestations of obsessive-compulsive disorder, and is not a form of an epileptic seizure. In fact, your dog may enjoy it. So if you ever catch your dog doing a stretch, let him be weird!
