Possibly Even when he does slow down he looks at me out of the corner of his eye like "aww mom why are you spoiling my fun! I'm just playing..."
Impulse control was a learned behaviour that's for sure, it's wonderful that he's literally fearless but he has learnt caution at least in certain situations (he knocked the baby gate over onto himself a few times as a pup so now he knows not to jump/ram/climb/hit the gate when it's up).
Our poor screen door has been hit multiple times from him charging into it; if the door's open and the screen is closed I now put a chair in front of it to remind him that there actually is an "invisible" door that is closed. But if I put a chair in any other doorway he either leaps over it without hesitation or just swerves around it.
Honestly it was a ton of repetition that doors were not to be charged, I'm lucky I've got pretty fast reflexes and he learned while he's smart and fast, I'm smarter and faster (well, most of the time lol)
