Thank you all for your responses! We are a very active family. We spend a lot of time in the woods, at the river/lake and we camp and hike quite often. She does great on a leash but her call-back is excellent & we take her off-leash when we're out away from town. We haven't had her jog with us yet, but we'd like to eventually take her out when we go bicycling.
Her training has been great, she has been very responsive, learns very quickly. She loves a challenge, especially hide & seek! Besides physical activity, we give her as much mental stimulation as we know how...perhaps we're the ones who need the training, lol.
I'm seriously thinking about agility, I believe that she'd really enjoy it. When I need advice on that, I'll certainly know to come to these forums!

Just cause she needs to still be crated NOW doesn't mean she can't be trusted out and about in 6 months or so. But the longer she gets in this wonderful fun habit of destroying bedding the harder the habit will be to break.
You keeping her mentally and physically active? How many off leash miles is she running a week? How are the dog classes going? Maybe adding something fun like agility or flyball may help even more.

|Peter.||Maybe drink a couple redbulls and pull an all-nighter? Seems like you'd have to catch her in the act, correct her, or discourage in some way.|

|KellyR||Since we got her we always allowed her on the futon...which is now inadvertently "hers". Thinking back, she has not really tried to get on the couch but maybe a few times. I just told her "no" or to "get down" and she doesn't get on the couch, instead, she walks over and gets on her futon (for which I praise her).|
