His energy level is always high and like I may have mentioned, he has 2 gears: park and overdrive. We have been spending more time to find a way to relax him when he gets hyper but then again...he's still a "pup" (big one).
Would you have time to do some agility training with him? Recreational classes are fun and
- which is a good thing. He's a working dog and needs a "job".
I bet that physically he can tire your entire family and still keep going.
Another idea - teach him lots of fun tricks - again, mentally tiring for him and can be done anywhere - at home, during walks,....
