|AugustGSD||Yep, all normal. Mine would come into my room at 12 weeks old crawl under the bed and just go to sleep. Enjoy it while you can. However, if you want a very energetic puppy, I have a 12 month old I can trade (note: he keeps away the door-to-door salesman and nosey neighbors). LOL!|

Sounds like mine except she will be in the middle if fetch or something like that and even after only a couple of times chasing the ball will still at 18 weeks will completely stop and plop down in the middle of the yard to chew on things. Maybe it's teething related for her. A good game of keep away last way longer. Her keeping away from me I mean. She loves it when I say " I'm gonna get your ball/stick", etc. she will run forever.

|Suka||Haha I like selzer's advice. I kept that in mind with my puppy at first too and then for awhile, he had two speeds - pokey puppy and zoom. Now he's pretty normal at 15 weeks!|

Never walk a puppy farther than you are willing to carry him home.
Jenna was an energetic youngster, and one day I got the silly idea to walk into town with her. About four miles. We got a drink of whater at the vets, and got about a mile back, when she decided she was done. She was not a small puppy at the time. Probably 35-40 pounds. I put her on my shoulders and carried her the rest of way home.
I haven't walked a pup into town since. No sidewalks, 55mph. Not really safe anyway, but carrying a big puppy a couple of miles isn't exactly a piece of cake.
She was older than your pup though, and I had her for months. Give your baby some time. And I wanted to add that carrying Jenna home that day did not cause ANY behavior problems. She's not particularly fond of licking my right ear or anything.

Since I have an upstairs, and my puppies when I get one, usually sleep up there at nite with me, I have no problem, carrying them down the stairs, (till they get to darn heavy anyhow!)..
I agree with the others, still very new to all his surroundings, life in general. THe last couple of puppies I've had, were ones that didn't take 'naps', just were go go go, so enjoy it )

|mbussinger166||My Pup is the same way. The first walk I tried to take him on he plopped himself down halfway down the driveway. Would not budge. I began trying to walk him two or three times a day and now we make it all the way down the road and back (1/2 mile or so) with no incidents. Just need to be patient. I too chalked it up to him just being a lazy dog at first.|

He's little, those are weird, and he is smart enough to figure out that they are something strange.
Carry him for now. You will miss it when you no longer can do so. I miss the days when I used to schlep Hans under my arm.
