Hi there,Our super-handsome hound is always crazy and he never seems to calm down. He is just totally dominating us and is always at us. It seems like no amount of exercise is enough for him. He…Continue

"I agree with Cornelia. I recently adopted a six year old neutered male and he has the energy of a pup. We renamed him Finn. Unfortunately he was never trained well or consistently so he came to me with a lot of bad habits. The first thing I did was…"

"Totally agree with Cornelia that mental stimulation is so very important. Just a few more ideas. We played the game when ours were pups with a treat under small flowerpots then moving them around. They have to keep their eyes fixed on the one with…"

"A strong and powerful dog who snaps is not a good thing if you have children. Your first course of action is to keep them safe from getting bitten. Then deal with his problems. But he can probably sense your fear when he snaps and knows he is the…"

"Same old story, same old song... have look at some of the older posts and you will see, that you have a perfectly normal setter at home. I doubt, castration is the solution and will help - I would not even consider this, just because he is young and…"

9 Month Old Just Can't Calm Down

Hi there,Our super-handsome hound is always crazy and he never seems to calm down. He is just totally dominating us and is always at us. It seems like no amount of exercise is enough for him. He sleeps downstairs and goes quite nuts when we come down in the morning - I'm trying to make him sit before we open the stair gate and make him sit while I put his breakfast in his bowl and pretend to eat a bit of it before I give it to him - but he definitely thinks he's the boss of us and in the…See More
