I don't think that doing the crate thing is bad at all (my puppy needs a time-out too sometimes) but using a mat or leaving the crate door open would be a lot more deliberate. As he comes into the house, I would also ask him to do a couple sits or downs (things you know he will be successful at even when excited).

Another idea, I give our puppy a kong with a few treats in his crate when he gets too hyped up. It gives him a quiet activity to put his excitement into.
Awesome!!! Thanks for the advice! I will definitely be using some of your suggestions!

erfunhouse I would try a few rounds of obedience before coming back inside to help him regain control of himself.

brembo Remember in grade school when the teacher let y'all outside for free recess? Remember going buck-wild for a few minutes in response to the total and absolute freedom? Yeah, that.

*edit*

I should be more clear. He is still torqued up from the romp outside and burning off energy.

"Attack Dog" after coming back inside

Smokey is doing much better if you have been following all my help posts!! We are using the "woobie" for when people walk in the door and it works amazing! He just passed puppy obedience class and we use the commands for everything, which he resends to extremely well! The counter surfing we still haven't been able to completely fix, however he now knows the command "off" and listens to it when he jumps up. We are just having one more issue... He has the electric collar on for the outside (also do very well with training in tis area), but whenever we let him in, he goes absolutely crazy!!!! Biting, jumping, growling, etc. So, we just put hi,m in his crate for a few minutes so he calm down. We are not sure why this is happening or how to fix it, so any input would be very much appreciated.
Thanks! Happy Holidays!
