Eric, I followed the Puppy Culture guidelines for my dogs. https://www.puppyculture.com/new-app...-exercise.html

Now that they are adults, they get the following. They free play in our large yard a couple of times a day, and then I either walk them to our neighborhood park and let them run free/fetch for about 30 min. or take them to the dog park for about 2 hours every day. Plus, they get several short training sessions per week if not in formal classes to keep their brains engaged.

If spoos receive the proper amount of exercise, both physical and mental, they are wonderfully calm in the house (past the age of 1, in my limited experience with my two). But if you don't meet their needs, they can be hell on wheels! Both of my dogs compete in sports and are very physically fit, so they might be a little more dog than the average spoo.
