Too many grains has been shown to cause behavior issues in addition to coat and skin deterioration. G
o raw or go with a grain-free, minimally processed kibble.
I mentioned food before, and I agree with Joanna that raw/grain free is best. A friend of mine who is a dog behaviourist and deals with 'uncontrollable' dogs, puts them on raw as soon as she gets them and with many of them it calms them down almost instantly. I'm not suggesting it's all down to diet, but it's worth a try.

Sounds like you are on the right track!

Puppies can be a challenge, and what they need changes month by month as they get older, so just keep your observations up and be ready to make adjustments frequently to your routines. If two walks a day is helping now, that's great. She may need something else added into her day in another month, such as a vigorous game of "chase the ball" or some such thing midday.

You'll get through this stage! I know it can be a bit scary, especially not knowing what is next!

As a general rule, if the puppy is totally out of hand, its an exercise/mental stimulation issue.

A tired puppy is usually pretty easy to have around.
A puppy with the "zoomies" NEEDS to run them off! You can't bottle it up.
