You know what I mean, it’s the thing that turns your normally sweet, obedient dog into a crazed lunatic. It’s the thing that renders your Sit and Stay commands totally useless. It’s the thing that triggers the “Game On!” mode inside your dog’s brain.

Surely Haley’s not the only dog that gets a little nutty sometimes. What drives your dog crazy?
