My female GSD chased her tail CONSTANTLY. The majority of the advice I got from people who didn't know me was "You're not exercising her enough..she's bored..etc". I took her everywhere to wear her out and had her out constantly. It didn't matter how much I got her out or wore her out physically and mentally, her tail was her arch nemesis that must be caught. She would wake up out of a dead sleep...just to chase her tail.

That being said, I'm not sure about the seizure deal. She ended up passing from bloat/intestinal torsion which I believe was a result of the tail chasing since she had an empty stomach and was inside the house when it happened. I never thought I would miss all that annoying tail chasing :(
