Odin is a typical berserker when he gets excited and playful. He runs from one side of the garden to the other, plays ball with us, then goes to his eating all you can see affair and plays a bit. When we call for him he half the time comes and sits down all good.

Now, after 30 mins, even more, we go inside and he still does not calm down. Tries to jump around like a rabbit, bites this and that, breathes heavily, drinks a lot, toddles around.....

Question, can I just put him in the crate under such a circumstance for 30 mins for him to calm down ?? It seems, the crate is the only place he can calm down fast, so is it fair from me to use that as an advantage ? I am planning on leaving him now for about 40 minutes and then I go out again with him.

Hello
that is the problem. He does not get tired and I am playing with him big time. From ball throwing, jogging, running, he just does not want to calm down. Then we go inside, he continues but here and there, up and down, back and forth. So I put some treat in the crate and when he goes to drink water which I put in the crate (believe it or not but he NEVER spills his water in the crate) and then close the door. Then he whines for 1 min and then lays down and sleeps.
