Best Answer

A hyper-active dog is almost always a BORED dog! Dogs have a lot of energy, and if they are not given a way to channel that energy in a positive way, they WILL figure out a way to do it themselves - you just probably won't like it!

ADHD is not a recognized disorder among canines. If the dog is behaving in a way that suggests hyperactivity, it probably needs more exercise and a way to channel its energy. Consider taking an obedience or agility class.

Also, there are a number of great books available on Dog Training and behavior.

Consult your vet if the dog is destructive or acts irrationally.

Does caffeine treat ADHD?

Caffeine has not been approved to treat ADHD, nor has it been proven to have any dramatic effects on focus or attention. Caffeine is a very mild stimulant and it belongs to the same class of drugs (psychostimulants) that are commonly used to treat ADHD such as amphetamine or methylphenidate. There have been theories that many people with ADHD benefit more from caffeine and it may be an attempt to self-medicate (similar to the higher proportion of individuals with ADHD that smoke tobacco which contains nicotine); treating ADHD with caffeine is not recommended.
