Funny thing is, as soon as DH got home she was an angel. Has been really good all night. HMMMM what's he got that I don't???? We shall see how tomorrow goes. I think I'll walk her quick before I head out for my 4 hour tour and then again when I get home and then DH can do it after dinner again. Thanks all for listening to my rants!

DH did ask me when I told him about our day if I was ready to take her back... she's staying!!!!!
You know it's funny you should say that because my breeder was saying that when she walks by her young dogs, they all attach to her like alligators and she gets cuts and marks all up her arm, yet, when her partner walks by them, they NEVER do it to her and they just skedaddle. She was saying she thinks its just something about her partners presence that exudes that she means business and is not going to tolerate the bitey bitey...who knows though, but I did think that was interesting what you said about the difference in Sage's behavior with you vs your husband.

I feel your pain! I was literally just treated to my 14 week old puppy's land shark. Biting, lunging, barking, zoomed. He ripped two holes in my shirt. And no, nothing seems to help while in this mode. Normally, when my puppy goes in this mode I take him to the park, let him run in the snow, go for a long, long walk. But tonight I wasn't able to do any of that. No car available, and my puppy is a hit or miss when it comes to walking in the dark outside. Tonight it was a miss.

After a 12 hour work day, I had had it. He went to bed 30 minutes early for MY sanity. There is only so many times I can act the "alpha" and work on the no biting.

Hang in there! I've heard these moments get better!

They DO get better, I promise. Loki is now 5.5 months old & I can scarcely remember the land shark days ....way behind us now. Actually, he was never too bad with me, but could be horrid with my DH, drawing blood on his arms & once a nasty bite on his poor ear when Loki was about 14 weeks old & lunged suddenly at his face. That was how I found this forum ..like so many others before me, no doubt. Now he is well-behaved for the most part & so easy to live with, undemanding & generally a great puppy to be around. I would be careful of walking your little girl too far or too many times a day. She is a very small baby & you do not want to damage her joints, which could cause a lot of painful & costly problems in the future. I did not walk Loki anywhere off our property until ten days after his third vaccination, as did not want to put his life at risk. We played in the back garden & did training indoors instead. So yes, they do grow out of the land shark stage. I think Loki was coming out of it at around 15 or 16 weeks old & now his baby teeth are falling out & lots of adult teeth replacing them, so if he does mouth, it is far less sharp. I do recall a short period where he was nipping at our trousers, & then a period of evening zoomies that were not pleasant & were rewarded by a few mins of Timeout in his ex pen. My trainer says zoomies happen when puppies are over-tired or over-stimulated ....she also says that mental activity is even more important for getting a puppy calm & ready to snooze, than physical.

Yep, we are careful with walking her. It isn't far at all and it isn't more than a 5-10 minute walk. We go at her pace and if she seems to slow I carry her. I did ask my vet yesterday and shot an email off to my breeder, they both said this is fine as long as I am not forcing her. She really seems to enjoy getting out. DH took her this morning and she came in, played a bit had breakfast and is currently snoozing by my feet. Some dog's just need more outlets. We tried playing in the snow etc and it wasn't enough. We do training in 10 minute intervals through out the day, she now has the hang of her Kong. She is so easily distracted though that sometimes we have to end training early. More than anything I want it to remain fun and she is easier to train if she isn't crazy energy bunny!
As for Zoomies, I think you breeder might be partially right. My other dogs had them when they were happy or excited, such as when DH came home from work. Sage seems to have them when she's hyped up from playing. I don't mind Zoomies if they aren't the glossy eyed, I hear nothing, I'm going to attack everything kind.

We're starting to take Sasha for short walks now as well. It was funny because this morning was the first time my boyfriend tried to walk her in the early morning. He said she got about two driveways down before she made a beeline for our house, all the while pulling hard on the leash! I'm guessing walking around the still somewhat unfamiliar neighborhood in the dark spooked her, since during the afternoon we've gone on a couple 15-20 minute walks and she was fine.

She definitely will need that morning walk eventually though, since we're both back to work now, and while she's doing beautifully in the crate and the dog walker comes by during the day, she definitely needs to burn some energy first thing in the AM to help her out until our dog walker comes by midday.

Well today is a much better day. I'm not saying she got it, but she appears to be gentler. We shall see what she does tomorrow.
