He is totally calm and happy with dogs he knows, I have play dates all the time with a buddy who has a black lab and they act like best friends. He is fixed and hasn't always been like this, it started around 6 mo of age. As far as job exercise I do hide and seek with him tons, he loves when I hide his tennis ball in the woods and he goes searching for it. He's an awesome dog but I cannot walk him in public or take him anywhere where other people he doesn't know will be (which is everywhere basically). I don't know it's been tough on me it really has.
