I'm laughing but really sympathizing with you you all see the similarities in the ages of your puppies?

Also..if your experience in OBEDIENCE TRAINING hasn't helped and given you the tools that you need for your working with Buddy (or whomever) I would gently suggest that there might be a BETTER trainer somewhere who can and will help you. I have not ever had an experience with a dog getting more hyper but I do know that by 5-6mos. if we didn't get our pup in a good training program that they really did irritate me as they were acting like the adolescents that they are.

I'm a breeder and have had several family in-house pets over the past 20 yrs but if I don't use the discipline of a class and a trainer's input I fail miserably at trying to train our dogs. So I just want to encourage you that in my experience it is the rare person who can sufficiently train their dogs from just a book or personal knowledge. And with some dogs more than others we have had to take "refresher" courses for both our benefits. But the fact of the matter is that the "big box" stores with the "kindergarten" classes in between the aisles send those people to school for as long as 5 wks and then voila! They are officially certified dog trainers! I have found better success with the people who are in business for themselves, with their own name and reputation on the line bringing more help to me and my puppies for the money.

I sincerely hope this helps someone! :D
