Sounds like Max has a super family who endured a rough puppy year and helped him turn a lot of things around. Glad he isn't sick on car trips anymore, because it is so much fun to take them along!

Max turned 1
My puppy is now 1 year old! It's been a rough year, but he finally learned to not plow through people- he runs around us now.
He knows come, sit, down, leave it, bed, crate, (working on walk), potty, paw, speak, fetch and return and stay (for brief amounts of time) He also knows crazy- which is a game we play when he needs to run off some crazies.. he looks at me and waits for me to say go crazy and he goes nuts.. it's funny.
He is not throwing up in the car any more (we only do short trips) and his stress poops have lessoned. Doggie daycare has helped him overcome some issues and he actually had a blast there. I was able to watch him on camera as well, so it was good.
The puppy nips have stopped, but he is still mouthy- but getting better.. slowly.
He plays hide and seek with the kids.. in this picture he was "hiding" lol. (one kid will tell him where to hide- or the kids hide and he finds them)
He has a job, which I didn't realize. He always goes with me to take out the garbage. I didn't let him come with me one time and he was upset, whining at me. So now I know he wants that to be his job. I might train him to carry a bag.
This forum helped tremendously during the puppy phases- it was good to know that land shark phases were normal and temporary.
