Thanks for the update! It鈥檚 good to know what to look forward to with more training and time.

馃槀 he sounds so much like Kuzco. He rolls and kicks and picks up/drops his tennis ball with gusto. And he loves other dogs and people.

Also, that game sounds like fun! Definitely going to try it.

Yes! It's endlessly entertaining to me to watch him stalk the balls, watch it roll to a stop, then pounce! He also learned how to bounce and fling the balls vigorously, which led to us replacing his solid rubber ball and tennis balls with hollow ones.

It definitely does get better! I've been super stressed trying to figure out what we were doing wrong that made this dog who is supposed to be confident and easygoing anxious. But in the past month, there was a very sudden shift where the majority of his time is spent relaxed and his preference to be around us feels more like a "want" rather than a "need." He's still very high energy when it's time to play, but it's also getting easier to get him to settle.

Not sure of you're doing this but it might help. Don't feed evening meal in a bowl. Give food in a wobbler, rolling toy, or outward hound has a food dish with a cover where the dog needs to knock it around. Should take about 15-20 minutes to eat dinner instead of five.
