High strung house dogs - How do you manage?
I've got a 2 year old little female lab who is as high strung as dogs come when in the house or out in public. She's always been this way and it's just her personality. Typical behavior is pacing, messing with the other dog(s), whining. She is very obedient and oddly enough calm and focused when working.
The best management of her house behavior I have found is to exercise her and lower her energy levels. Unfortunately for her, this requires at least two hours every day of training or hard running/playing. With my schedule I just don't have the time to train more than 3 days a week and the other days get her out for 30mins - 1hr of play or drills. Also, I use "place" and kennel a lot just to have a little peace.
How have others with crazy house dogs managed? Any tips other than what I am already doing?
