Dakata is being an absolute terror lately. He gets wound up and charges with all his might. While I was on my knees throwing balls for him, before I saw it coming, he threw himself at me with his front paws on my chest and knocked me flat on my back--twice! Then he gets wacko and runs like mad through the house. Are all doodles this energetic? I know he needs more exercise but he is too young to venture out yet. I do take him for short walks in our neighborhood because I know the dogs and we don't have strays, but that doesn't seem to be nearly enough. Did anyone else have this problem? If so, how did you work it out?
