Lots of mental stimulation and concentration in skijoring/bikejoring!
(I want a joring dog so baaaaad! )

Orrrr, I know backpacking is super mental stimulating. Nosework is freaking hard ass work for dog brains!

I'm afraid to try any sort of biking/scootering because he's skittish and he does sometimes jerk or jolt unexpectedly.

Nosework is a great idea, though, and I'm going to look into it.

I find that with my guys the more I exercise the crazier they get. It just increases the capacity of their crazy-tank and it takes that much more to poop them out, lol.
This, the more you run a dog the more they want it as a general rule. However, the more you train and challenge their minds the easier they are to live with.

I forgot to mention that he is learning to swim. Slowly. He very much likes leaping in water that is about 8 inches deep, splashing around like a goof and then leaping out, but he hasn't quite gotten brave enough to attempt a full on paddle. Hopefully very soon, though.

Can't you take him out to places to run, on a long lead? That gives him space to run and he'll still be safe.
