Tire Tigger or Die Trying

OKAY I cannot tire this pup out...we spent all day throwing the frisbee and he wouldnt chill out...when we thought he was tired, he came in the house so hyped up we had to take him out and throw it more....and more....then i went to walmart and bought a GIGANTIC dog bone from Dingos...and put him in his crate...he ate the whole thing (even after his meal time) and then I let him out and OMG hes like on doggy crack or something....
he must be getting it from the neighborhood dogs...I knew they were up to no good....

I dont know what to do...geeze how much can he run....its 10pm and I am gonna go run him some more...omggggggggggggggg.....hes crazy

Wow... just... wow... Have you tried making him run in circles constantly somehow? Running in circles works the body out more than running straight.

No hes too young to be doing anything crazy like that, plus I think thats a bad habit to start...since hes a border collie he is subject to hip displacia till hes about 1 so no crazy strains on his hips.

Hes exhausting me and my parents, and we have a somewhat large backyard...I had been walking him up to the soccer fields just 1 block down the street and running him, but then when I come home hes rested up from the walk and is ready to go again....

lol

i would play games that use his brain like hiding something and getting him to find it do lots of training if he is full of energy teach tricks put them to music and corigraph some dances chase games just release endorphines and collies will keep going till they drop also i would check his diet as high protien can make dogs hyper active i know he is a pup but if still on puppy food try juniour or adult with a lower protien also check for enumbers feed with colouring can also make them hyper. hope it helps

I agree with dobie! You can excercise him first to try and tire out his body, but then I'd do some training or something, that require him to use his brain, and then, at the end, i'd do games like dobe said, that excerise both body and mind..

And keep in mind, he's just a pup..they have never ending energy. My Gizmo doesn't ever wanna stop either, only on the nights that he goes to the offleash park and he gets to rigorously play with the other dogs..for some reason, that really tires him out. Do you have any of those?

Maybe a kong in the crate would do him good too..that usually will occupy a pup for a loooong time..

hi Shara...one of the tricks i found useful with hyper Lucy was "settle".
each time i caught her laying quietly either next to me or in her bed i would say "settle" and give her a treat. it took about 2 weeks but she finally got the message that sometimes mum cant play and its a good thing to go and chill out for a bit. she now goes and lays quietly somewhere on command "settle" which is handy if i am trying to work on the laptop or cook or whatever. hope this helps

What about agility or hearding? That would work both his mind and body.

Thats very neat...Smart Lucy!!!! <huggles> He knows down and stay so I try to get him to do that, he cant stay down yet..hes too hyper. lol he might stay for 30 seconds but then he has to get a toy orsomething he just CANT stand it!!! Hes still a puppy so I guess its catching up to me, when he was just a few weeks old he was great up till now, I guess we going through terrible 6 months? Is that possible :P LOL
