Rosa Posted January 9, 2014 Report Share Posted January 9, 2014 Hi everyone, I have been reading the forum for a while, and would like to ask you all some questions about my pup Seren. He is 13 weeks old now, and we've had him for about a month. He is a wonderful, brave and smart little dog, but he can be very wild at times. We've noticed that he becomes wild and unruly both when he is bored and full of energy AND when he is overtired. I have been trying to find a good balance between activities and rest but I can't seem to find it. We take him out around 10 times a day to do his business. Around 3 times a day we make this into a short walk around the block with him, 5 - 10 minutes max, to expose him to cars driving by (that he would already like to run after), other people, shopping carts and the like. We have playsessions in the house around 3 times a day when we play with a ball, play tug or teach him some basic obedience. Once a day I take him to a large doggypark where I let him roam with my parents' two adult border collies (who want little to do with the yipping monster) and play with other dogs for around half an hour to 45 minutes. With all this, he is still hard to calm down most of the time. It is beginning to feel like I have watch him around the clock, because he is always chewing things, nipping us, or terrorizing the cats. Am I giving him too much to do / too much attention? Or is this normal for his age? I will attach a photo of the little monster for those of you who are into that kind of thing (and who isn't?)
