high energy dog in an apartment alone is going to continue to be a problem.

The dog is exercised many miles a week. Not as many as when we can go rollerblading when there isn't snow everywhere, but still many miles. When it's nice out and we rollerblade we'll do 40 miles a week and he'll still do this. Not an exercise issue.

That's why this is so aggravating. We have literally tried everything (including training, diet, exercise, sometimes ALL AT ONCE) and this still persists. Everything except full time kennel and/or drugs. I don't really believe in drugs so there must be something else.

What about doggie daycare? That makes a huge difference with our dog. If we move up there, our dog will go to daycare every week day.

Dog are just like people in the sense we are organic, chemically sensitive animals. maybe the dog has a chemical imbalance. It's a hard thing...wish they could talk.

My two love going to Daycare. Usually it's to stay for a week or so while we travel. Nothing better than a pack to teach any dog how to behave.

Hey... every dog is different. So I can only give you suggestions. What kind of breed is Murphy?

I have had a Lab mix for 10 years now. The first 6 years he was absolutely crazy and high strung. But we got him to stop chewing up EVERYTHING in a few months.

Exercise is key. Good diet is second. You are third. It's not exercise big walks / 6 mil a WEEK. It's every f-ing day. I used to take my dog for a 3 mi run in the morning plus 30min of fetch, another walk at lunch and then an hour of fetch at night (20-25 as far as I could throw with a chuckit and 2 animal control citations). This lasted about 2-3 years. 5-6 yo is when they start calming down. Then it just became normal stuff... walk + fetch in the morning and at night.

Also... not to judge but looking at your picts... put you stuff away. Yeah, it sucks. But if he's chewing on the couch... try to block that off. He will eventually move on to remotes, magazines, books etc. All that stuff goes up. Be thankful he's not eating walls... yet.

We used crate training as well... with a plastic one that had no inside metal mechanisms... slots were too narrow for him to get his mouth into. It was like a cave... he always hated it but when he chewed things up... in he went whether we were home or not.

No chewing means no chewing on ANYTHING. No chew toys, no hides, no pig ears. Only thing he was allowed to chew was his food and treats.

If you don't have time for all this... can you hire a dog walker? You live in NY which doesn't help but I am in Los Angeles and it's crazy with the rules and law enforcement here but we find a way.

Ultimately, I think it comes down to your dog being bored. He's got to eventually work through that but until then... you wear him down. If it was separation anxiety... they'd probably be howling and barking... does he do that? Dog walkers and/or free roam day care (he'd sometimes go 3-5 times a week when I was at work) were a real help.

Charlie is now 10... he plays fetch maybe 3 times a week... only 5 times. All his hips can handle. And crazy as it sounds... as he gets older and more tired, I miss when he had all the energy in the world.

Good luck!

It might not be total mileage. If you are rollerblading him, he will be physically tired but not mentally. That's why fetch worked for us... it was like a game.

I have heard the packs also work. They do have to feel like they are doing something.

To look at it a different way, if you are doing crazy mileage with a dog in a harness... you are training him for that high energy activity. I once went dog mushing in Alaska... those dogs were NUTS. They lived to pull. They were exhausted from pulling 40 mil A DAY. They slept but as soon as they woke... they were bouncing off the walls.

So now you've trained Murphy to be slightly high strung and then put him in a smallish NYC apartment.

Walks or runs are how you show that you are pack leader. Bikes and roller blades are a bit of a cheat b/c we don't have time but teaches the dogs THEY are in control.

The harness and gentle leaders never worked on our pain desensitized lab. The prong coller worked. Quick snap and he knew he was doing something bad.

I'd bet a 2-3 mil walk in the morning goes further than a 6mil roller blade... it also takes 3 times as long. But enjoy the time with your dog.

The happiest most well behaved dogs usually belong to homeless people who just walk their dogs all day long. Which I believe was in Caesar Milan's book... which I read... after my dog ate my Xbox.

Can' quite title properly

So the title of this photo should be;

A) Bitches be crazy...

or

B) Cheaper than plaque removal at the Vet...

Normally at this point I think we should (anonymously of course) call SPCA or PITA but it looks like he likes it. So, no harm no foul - carry on.

My two dogs have decided to start taking the hits from the under ground fence this week. Spring time nuttiness?
