I had Collies growing up and recently brought home a Doberman puppy from a breeder. From my experience owning dogs the best thing is to give the dogs lots of exercise. If a dog is too tired to be jumping on people and around the house he won't.I have a Flat Coated Retriever mix and he´s 8 months old. He´s a rescue dog who had absolutely no rules and we´re having trouble controlling him.
We´ve tried training him on a serious problem which is jumping on people because he gets too excited. He does a great job when theres treats around but as soon as we end training he goes back to the same and it´s exhausting.
We sometimes watch videos on how to deal with it but he´s a big dog and the "shushes" and small touches don´t do anything, he just keeps jumping on me and other visitors.
His leash walking isn´t good as well but its almost the first time he´s ever walked with it so we´re not very worried about that.
Another thing is that at around 7am he just starts barking and we have no idea how to stop it.
Would love some help on this hyperactivity please!
My cousin had a Border Collie that had lots of energy, like a kid with ADHD x 10! Like you he struggled with training, when he added more exercise into his daily routine it worked wonders. Tiring the dog down with long walks/ runs at parks really does wonders to correct behavior problems. I also did this with my two Collies growing up and it worked great to complement his daily obediance. I would give my Collies walks/runs in the morning & night. Had a fenced in yard for him to run around in. Took him to doggie parks to play.
