I remember when Kyleigh was that age - I seriously wondered if she would EVER stop!
I discovered that with just ME, I couldn't tire her out sufficiently. She would be tired, and then about 1/2 an hour later, ready to roll again ... and I'm ready for a nap LOL
I took Kyleigh to the dog park. Please note, the dog park I go to is MASSIVE, it's acres and acres of trees, sand, trails, etc. I'm not talking about small fenced in areas where there can be trouble in 5 seconds!
I would arrive with Kyleigh and scope the place out. Invariably, I would run into someone who also had a puppy, and luckily enough they got along. We would then move away from other people, so it was just the two of them playing. I timed it one day ... we were there for 4 hours before she came over to me and laid down at my feet.
4 hours - I was stunned. And later that night? She was ready to go again - full tilt!
I certainly don't do four hours every single day at a dog park, but it gave me a really good idea of just how MUCH energy she has. Two dogs playing use both types of stimulation - mental and physical, so they will tire out faster with another dog, than with you.
This is how Kyleigh and I found her best friend, and now one of my best friends! Our dogs absolutely adore each other and are only 2 weeks apart. Kyleigh is maybe 10 pounds heavier, so they are a great match and play hard together.
Maybe if you found someone else with a puppy that could help you out? I'm sure they'd be just as grateful too!!
