I've never allowed rough play in the house - with a puppy, it's playing outside, me interacting with calmer games in the house, keeping them busy with peanut butter kongs or bones to chew on, or crated if I don't have time to supervise or play with the pup. Leaving them to their own devices is 100% guaranteed to create a pup that does not know how to focus energy, chill in the house, or associate proper behaviours in different settings.
Does this mean that your life revolves around your pup? Yes, it does. Plan your days around the puppy's needs, set up a schedule, teach them there is a time to play, and a time to relax.
