I wore my GSD out by playing tag, hide and seek, and just chasing him around the yard [even though that wore me out more than him]. I couldn't take him out on walks because he does NOT like strangers at all, nor other dogs. Even though he did have a doggy friend for a good part of his life.

i made up all kinds of silly games when i was about your age with my dog charlie..one was to put a super ball under some cups mix them up and see which one..then we would hide the super ball in the room somewhere..(first he had to sit and stay around the corner) and have him find it..he really learned to use his nose early that way. Jumping thru the hula hoop was bronki's favorite..and easy enuff to teach and cheappppp to! i think you can get a hula hoop for under five dollars..just start with it on the ground and hold the treat on the other side and gradually lift it up. Do make sure you do it on a soft surface and not concrete so you spare their joints. Bronki in the end could jump thru if i held the hoop level with my shoulder which was pretty impressive for a big heavy dog (he weighed 80 lbs)..

you can see our hoop was a bit beat up but oh my did we get a lot of use out of it..Mary can't anymore because of her hockjoint being bad, but for many years she adored this and was very proud..a little horrrrayy and a treat is all that is required.

Thankyou! Yeah my GSD's 5years old. That picture I took with my webcam, so it's pretty bad! I have some beautiful polaroids with him but no scanner. He doesn't quite look like in the picture anymore. He's been living with my brother and the last time I visited he looked pretty huge, could be because I'm used to seeing my little puppy. He looked like he gained a LOT of weight. Seems that my brother doesn't play with him much, and I just despise that. I just want to take him back home with me. But he's still my little baby!

Your GSD looks adorable also! Just like a teenager! Lol.

To drain my doggy's energy we play in the hose now that it's warm out, we play hide and seek in the house, which is a fantastic game to play, esp. for sit/stay commands, and plus it's so fun seeing the look on their face when they find you!! Also, for special times at night when my dogs have so much energy they are driving me nuts, we go out in the backyard and play with the laser pointer, I got it at the dollar store and they go nuts every time they hear the little jingle, they know it's time to chase each other and have a grand old time. We also play tug games and hide the toy. It's fun creating new games!

Blue and Bailey usually tire themselves out. If that doesnt work blue is outside on the cable run with the Kong on a rope playing fetch or just let him dig a little. On the occasion he is being good and being attentave I let Bluedawg rip around off leash doing laps around the house.

75 dollars for a puppy class? How long does that last for? We run a puppy class for five dollars a night, but then again we arn't in it for the profit, lol.

Isn't Rocky still under 9 months old? I so, he's still a "puppy" and should be in socialization classes if you can afford it...
