  1. Hi! I'm new to this site...but excited I found it. My border collie, Nalu, is 4 months old (male). I've had him since he was about 7 weeks old. Having grown up with a bc, and just moved into a house with a large yard, and being a runner, I thought having a bc would be something I could handle...until I got walking pneumonia. It's just me and him in the house. This past month has been painful with such an energetic dog. I couldn't even walk, let alone take him for runs. The most I could handle was throwing a frisbee for him in my backyard, trying to teach him new tricks, and tossing his mini soccer ball in the house. I've taken him to daycare and hired sitters some days, but I can't afford to do that all the time. I'm finally feeling better now and am back on my feet, but still not up for running just yet. Since I've been feeling better (the past four days) I've been taking him on an hour walk every morning, a half hour walk at lunch, and a half hour walk after work...and he's still pretty wired. He's unfortunately taken a liking to playing soccer in the house like we did while I was sick, but I'm trying to ween him off of it to teach him to be calm inside...but then he just chews my furniture...so I go back to letting him play soccer. I'm worried that month of being sick has developed some bad habits in him. Taking him to the dog park helps a bit, but he's still so young, and gets pretty worked by the bigger dogs. I guess I'm asking if anyone has any tips I can use to release some of his excess energy. I wish I could have sheep in my backyard! Thanks!
