Default Has anyone had one of those days...

Where your puppy drives you crazy with EVERYTHING....Saber is giving me one of those days!!! started with knocking over his food this morning cause he is an insane puppy eater...then i let him outside again after he ate, i have my 10yr old GS and him at the door, i let the puppy out but he doesnt want to go cause the older guy isnt goin, i hate letting them out together cause puppy will get distracted, or my 10yr old will pee on his head, so im raising my voice for one of them to go out, close the door on my toes!!! Fast forward he has peed2x so far outside, comes back inside starts to jump all over my older guy, pees all over the place...

Put him in his crate leave for 2hrs come home take him outside pees and runs grabs a rock and runs away, i chase him, then he grabs a pile of grass, runs, ok finally in the house, he is blocking the door and my old GS wont come in cause puppy is blocking the door, i feel so over whelmed today and crazy, now i am cold have a blanket covering me and he is insisting on grabbing it and trying to run...im over it today...

Yes..and my boy is an adult. Sometimes I want to shove loads of xanax down his throat. (Don't worry I NEVER have and never will Lol) but it gets frustrating.

Ohh I don't know. I'm sitting here on my computer listening to the dulcet wookielike noises that Havoc makes while wrestling with Tempest on the bed behind me. In a bit I'll sweep up the toy innards and mud that they have tracked in. It's raining today so there will be plenty of lovely muck.

You should try to reverse your thinking. Think of mishaps as opportunities. Puppy pees on the floor - I look at it as an opportunity to clean the floor and have a cleaner house.
Puppy grabs something he/she is not support to like a rock, you could look at it as an opportunity to redo your landscaping, or if taking something inside, an opportunity to get better organized. Chasing puppy or puppy chasing you - hey you get to burn some calories and most people feel better after some exercise.

Using a leash and a crate may help you, as will a few cups of coffee

My 12 wk old puppy is chewing EVERYTHING in the house. I've puppy-proofed all of the obvious dangers away, so now he's going for walls, furniture, carpet, etc. It's the coldest day of the year so we can't really burn energy outside. I ran out and bought a couple new toys to help keep his interest on doggie items and not destroy my house.

Good Luck!
