Beau is 6 months old and still occasionally has her mad 5 minutes consisting of jumping from sofa to sofa and bouncing off doors - it doesn't last long and if she gets too mad my daughter picks her up for a cuddle and she calms down straightaway :D

We used to call Lady a gremlin, she would hunch her back she would be running so fast...and making growing noises and the whole lot....we would all just lift out feet up and wait for it to be over....lol she only does it like once a month now.

Yes, daisy has a 'mad moment' about 5 or 6 o'clock. We always put it down to needing her evening walk! She runs around like a looney from inside to out, grabbing something she shouldnt on the way! Normally a toy, washing, a shoe! Then it turns into a game of chase to retrieve said item which just makes her even more excited. :) The kids think its hilarious! Me too actually, I love to see her having fun! :D

Maple does it too. I have noticed that she has started doing it when she sees my mum, she just goes manic. The only way to calm her down is to get her to lie on her back and put your hand into her mouth!!!:) (Maple I mean, not my mum!)

Some people call it the 'doodle dash' - I have always called it a 'zoomie' having heard it called that on another site:) Teddy still does it occasionally, and I think it look hilarious. Often wonder WHY he does it, though....:confused: Looks like an explosion of excess energy to get rid of..

Im afraid 'mad half hours' are not exclusive to Cockapoos, you want to have a Vizzie or an Akita doing the wall of death:eek: :D

We had a golden lab (i think Mum said he was a lab x collie cross?) when I was younger and I have very fond memories of his mad half hours, where he would hurtle around the garden in a figure of 8! It was so funny :)

Max has mad moments also, and I love watching him! Sometimes he's outside for it and he runs around manically either with a toy or without, it's so much fun to watch and makes me giggle :)

My Tilly does this at least twice a day, especially when we let her in the garden! She runs round and round in circles...honestly anyone would think that I don't take her for a three mile walk every day!
