i wont lie.... all that wacky puppy energy... sticks around until they're about 2.... least with all my dogs thats how its been.
Yeah... Kali 16 mos. and she is just as hyper and wacky as day 1. Lucky for her, I'm just as hyper and wacky, so there's an even balance :wild:
I know...my first GSD was an old soul in a puppy body so she was very calm. My current GSD is the total opposite! LOL She's 18 months old now and she has calmed down some, but she is still a bundle of energy! LOL
So it sounds like I just need to endure another 14 months of tending to his energetic needs.
He's actually pretty well behaved and we constantly get compliments of how calm he is - he walks well and he'll go into the crate when I instruct him to and will just lie there and not bark even if people come into the house.
I just wish he would sleep more! Long walks even with a heavy backpack seem to have no effect on him.
Glad to know that most of us are in the same boat and that he isn't the exception!
