    Puppies take a good year to grow...and you need to be easy on their joints for that first year - and the bigger the dog the more care you have to take...

    But they also need a lot of taking your puppy for a run in the cul de sac is fine...but unless it's a huge street - you'll be done too soon. You might be better off going out for 2-3 shorter sessions. For example...a 10 min. run in the morning...a 10 min. run at dinner time...and a 15 min. walk before bed. Three shorter sessions, spread out over the day, at this age can be very useful. Use that time for teaching sits, stays and other basic dog training commands as well...

    Dogs also easily learn the difference between a 'working' session...and a 'fun' session - when I train puppies we do the work portion first...and then I give a release command...and let them snuffle around at their own pace for a few minutes as a reward...

    There are many approaches to effective dog training...but as I mentioned need to be consistent in however you do it...

    how about platforms in series he has to jump up onto to climb? then a ramp to come down. Like really big stairs. Or a series of hoops to jump through, maybe you could alternate the heights.

    Keep in mind it will be a long term effort to keep him busy. Even as an adult he won't slow down much.

    Yeah we thought about stuff like that but worried he would fall from top one or something, this is temporary we are going to move within the next 6-8 months and will have a bigger yard and goats and chickens for him to herd.
