I have a set of agility equipment but hes too young to do that yet. I have 12 weaves, tetter-totter 24' tunnel, pause box, tire jump, jumps...but hardly any room to set it up in my back yard and just leave it....such a hassel and hes too young to do that because of hips, needs to be 1 year old, can do pause box and tunnel, simple stuff...

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..

Ya he is a puppy still...I keep forgetting because he is so BIG, hard to see him as a puppy...but he is @_@ LOL

He has TONS of toys I switch out for his crate time...gosh our house looks like a 2 year old lives there but only ...dog toys instead of kid toys!!!

I do need to do mental games with him, I have been slacking off with that, more conserned with him burning energy. LOL
