Thank you all for the responses. Moe is a puppy after all and has his moments where he is a butt and likes to mess around, but I think a lot of that has to do with his goofy personality.

Off leash he 100% well behaved. At the park he is amazing, doesn't chase people. Some dogs went running by chasing their owners and Moe went toward them. I called him and he sat down then came back to me all happy, sat next to me and watched them run. I'm really hoping none of this changes haha, but that is probably too much to ask.

Tank is 9 months old and he can be a major butt at times but he is really a great boy. His brother Mojo is a super big butt and we swear he doesnt have anything resembling a brain. I get to hang with Mojo when his owner brings him over for play dates and for me to "mo pup sit" The other dog I am working with Belladonna is like Tank a big sweetie with some fear issues and some behavioral problems that I am helping her owner work through. You can see a difference between Bella when she is with her owner and when she is with me. My dogs Hailie, Tundra,Drizzit and Cheveyo all have their Bratty Teen stages. I think Drizzit is going through one now because she got out yesterday twice and just ran around wouldnt come when I called her or anything else. I finally caught her when she went to the neighbors to play with their husky. Tundra went through one about a year ago. Hailie is going through something and Cheveyo well he is just a butt most times but he minds really well.
