Has he had enough exercise to be ready to settle? Zoomies is a term coined for the wild tearing around back and forth (and with my pup literally using the wall to bounce off of). My pup wasn't a good settler either so would have to be crated to rest. Sometimes also if a pup is TOO tired it's almost like a small child having a tantrum. Going to bed or to have a nap is a good choice then.

My guy is 8 mo too and occasionally he will chill when I want him to, but not usually. Put a bed in the living room and teach him to go to it and stay while you are watching tv. You can throw treats from where you're sitting.

When Tucker is overly wound up, any obedience training seems to settle him more. As long as I know he's had enough exercise, I get better results from this than I would if I chained him to a treadmill going full speed!

Totally true, they are just like overstimulated toddlers. With my last GSD, I kept exercising her more and more, thinking to tire her out, but it seemed to make her even more worked up. Eventually exercised her less but did more training, it's good to strike a balance between physical and mental exercise to really wear them out.
