I'll try to talk to my dad about finding a Schutzhund club so we can start getting involved. We've been planning to get involved with it forever but everything's been really crazy lately with my parents getting divorced and losing jobs and stuff. How long a walk or how much exercise would you recommend daily for him? It's been hard learning how to raise this huge baby, but I'm trying to fix my mistakes. I've only ever raised and trained a yorkie, and she turned out to be the perfect dog. I'm just not used to a larger breed because now I can't just throw something up in the couch to put it out of reach. And, of course, he has so much more energy.
A few months ago during the summer and in the beginning of the year, when I had less homework, I would almost always handfeed him his entire second meal in parts, making him work for every part. Since then I have been getting lazy and just making him do a couple tricks before giving him his food. I realize now I need to try to discipline myself more to get back into this habit.
