How high is his food drive? When you want him to relax in the house, have you tried stuffing a kong with special treats? My dogs love their kong bone when it is stuffed with liver treats and it will keep them chewing/working on it for some time.
I did give him one of those kong toys that you stuff peanut butter in. He chewed on it for 15 min and was done since he couldn't get to the inside. He eats twice a day dry food. 2 cups per meal. so 4 cups per day on top of treats for hip\teeth development.
