Guest ms3569 Posted July 21, 2015 Share Posted July 21, 2015 I have a 3yo male we adopted 6 months ago. Last evening I was on the floor playing with him. He became overly excited and started jumping on me, scratching my back. I moved off the floor and he ran to jump up on me on the sofa. He never has gotten on the sofa. I put my leg up to keep him from jumping on me and he hit my foot. Unfortunately he hurt his paw. He has a small skin tear. I feel like he has a lot of energy. The weather has been extremely hot near 100 degrees every day. We walk him every night for about 20-30 minutes. Does anyone have any suggestions for activities we can do in the house to get rid of some of his energy. Maybe games we could play? He's a very sensitive dog and lacks confidence. We are working with a positive behavior trainer and she has helped him be a little more social but he seems frightened by some dogs and growls at them. We don't take him to dog parks. Would appreciate any suggestions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
