Hello all,

Wondering if you can help me please??.... I have a 13 week old German Shepherd male puppy named Bowser. He's a great dog, full of beans and never gets tired. I keep him out during the day (leaving the utility door open so he can go in and out whenever he wants to rest, but only the utility).

At night I try to bring him into the living room with us to relax with my me and my 2 housemates. My housemate has bought a toy terrier puppy too (complete house dog) and he is the same age as my GShepherd and we bought them at the same time, but all they seem to do is want to bite each other, and I can't seem to settle my German Shepherd down at all. :cry:He keeps jumping all over the place and people, and he is way too powerful for the toy puppy so they have to be seperated. I have had to put him back out to the utility most nights because he is incontrollable, which I hate doing because he is on his own all night then. When everyone has and the toy pup has left the room I can bring him in then and let him explore and he eventually settles into his bed, but he's not really learning anything this way.

I really don't want to have to leave him out all night as well as all day, so of anyone has any points please share them, as I'm very annoyed about the problem. It has got to the stage now where I get angry with him and shout at him (which is not helping him learn) but he just won't listen. I can only describe him as hyperactive haha!

Please help as I want him to be part of our household and be around people?? :help:

Thanks a lot.

actually what's not fair is it sounds like your puppy has to much 'boring' time, and not enough exercise, :You need to MAKE time and do stuff with him EVERY single day, you can't expect him to be outside all day and then allowed in at nite, to lounge around,,he's a puppy, and he's probably been lounging around all day so now it's burn off that energy time..

Puppies are alot of work and alot of responsibility, rain or not, we gotta get out there and do "something" with them.

I think your expecting to much out of a 13 week old puppy, with that, exercise more ONE ON ONE, save your money and get into an obedience class, take him out in the big wide world, socialize socialize socialize and then socialize him some more.
