Hmm, could it possibly be that your dog is bored? Have you been taking him out for walks, and providing him with enough mental stimulation? When a dog's behavior starts reverting back to pre-training habits, it can mean that they're bored. As has been already said, now that puppy is starting to chew furniture and go potty in the house, you need to keep an eye on him at all times. It is up to you to let your puppy know what he should and should not do. It's called avoidance training- if he's not able to get to the couch/your shoe to chew on it, eventually he'll forget that's something he can do. Make sure he has a good toy to play with, and let him know he's being a good boy when he's doing it.

Also, there really is no such thing as a bad puppy. You may have been getting a bit lax with his training. If he is acting out, you shouldn't be letting him roam around until you are back on track with his training. He has already proven to you that he is intelligent, eager to learn, and loving. It's up to you to get him back to that point!

It very well may be stress related to the move. I've seen this happen to quite a few Great Danes when the family moved. However, I would want to rule out any/all health issues first. Have a FULL blood work up done. I'm talking everything they can possibly test for, have it tested. If you don't have confidence that your vet is experienced with the breed and isn't taking you seriously enough, get another one. It could be any number of health issues both common to the breed and not. Then you have the fact that your pup WILL go through stages when they will seemingly forget everything they were ever taught, they will challenge the rules, push the limits. Very common and it will pass, just as long as you stay positive and consistent, provide lots of stimulation for her and work with her. But yes, definitely rule out health first.

GotGermanShepards, please stop giving this advice. The show clearly states not to try CM's methods at home. Dogs he has "trained" have been euthanized and rehomed because his methods have exacerbated behavior.

let's not have another debate about cesar milan.

GotGermanShepards, do a forum search on CM and/or DW. the methods used are not promoted on this forum.

other pertinent links:
https://www.dogforum.com/dog-forum-an...posting-23692/

https://www.dogforum.com/dog-forum-an...-policy-22539/

https://www.dogforum.com/dog-forum-an...om-rules-1606/

let's keep this thread on topic, and not drag out any dead horses for beatings ANY further references to CM or DW in this thread will be removed.

WHEW, that couldn't have been clearer!!! Thanks for the boundaries before all .... broke out!! Think maybe OP should post for Holly to take a look at the skin condition...could be demodex flare and it is very uncomfortable for dogs (mine has it).
Also the move. I would call another vet, explain the problem, let him know that the first vet couldn't figure it out (money wasted??) and see if he would have a clue if you came in to see him... That's an awful lot of hair to lose...maybe do some reading on demodex yourself...it's not supposed to itch, just the sarcoptic itches....could be allergic to something that is in your new home....????

When ever i go on trail rides I take my dogs with me plus walking both of them a mile or more a day, sometimes five miles. My dane pup has been to multiple vets as of recent and no one can figure it out. When I'm home I spend at least two hours a day, sometimes less and with lots of praise, on training. Maybe it is just stress from the move but I've never had this happen before.

How long ago did you move? I moved twice this year, and it really affected my dog's behavior (she is more anxious now, and her reactivity is worse), so that could definitely be a factor. Not sure about the baldness; she's not chewing, just balding? For the other stuff, I would just be consistent and try to stay on a routine; she'll settle in eventually.
