Puppy Place > What do you do?

I have the same suggestion as Reina. Start hiding treats around the house. Make it a search game for her. Do that a couple times a day.

Not living in a snowy area and Moose only being able to play in snow once (this Christmas)I'm not familiar with super cold, but with it being so, so cold where you live, maybe invest in a pair of booties for her.
Walking through snow is one thing, but walking through it in 12 degrees is a whole other. It just seems like it would be super hard on a dogs paws in cold like that.

Have his eyes been checked? Maybe he's having issues with figuring out what he's looking at in the distance, but once the person is within his sight range, he relaxes. Just a thought.
Moose is a bit of nervous nelly at night and barks at things and people in the distance that he can't quite make out. Sometimes his bark sounds like he means serious business, but it's only at night.

Your pup is gorgeous by the way. If GSMDs weren't so aloof with people, I'd seriously think about getting one in the future, but I like super social dogs.

Behavior & Training > 10 week old Puppy Keeps Me up All Nite

Moose

At 10.5 weeks a puppy should still be allowed out to potty every 2 hours if needed. 10 weeks old is still super young for a puppy to hold it for more than 3 hours. If you're letting her out and she's peeing, then you'll have to keep it up.
I got my boy at 12 weeks old and he had to be let out to pee every 2 hours for the first week or so that I had him. Then I'd extend it to every 3 hours for a while, then every 4 hours, etc. And the first two nights I had him, I set an alarm to go off every 2 hours to take him out. Then after that I'd wait to hear him stir and I'd jump up and make him go out. I never ignored his whines.

Part of having a puppy is coming to terms with the idea that sleep will be minimal for the first few weeks. Bladder control comes with age. You can't expect him to hold it like a 5 month old pup.
I'd suggest you set an alarm for every 2 or 3 hours to take your pup out. That way there will be minimal accidents and as he gets older, you extend the time in between each outing.

Late response, but here it is nonetheless. In her profile, as of today, it says she's 10 months old. If that's the case, sounds like you've got a very hyper puppy on your hands. Not a vicious dog.
Moose did and sometimes still will get super hopped up and jump up at me and bite when we're on a walk. But, he wasn't biting me, he was biting his leash. He wanted to play tug with it. It was his way of expending his spazzy energy. Sometimes, fingers and hands be damned when he went to bite the leash.
Last week he did it again and it had been a long time since he'd done it and it kinda scared me. But, once I realized he hadn't had any exercise that day and we had just stopped to say hi to someone and their dog, he was all hopped up. He wanted to play with the other dog, but wasn't allowed and as they walked away, he just went ape. Luckily I have him pretty well trained and if I ask for a "leave it" and a "sit", he'll do it. Or I'll let him grab his leash, I'll let go and let him do zoomies on a lawn. Once he's done that, he's a cool as can be. He just has burst of puppy.
I used to carry a tug toy on our walks so he would grab that instead of the leash. I haven't carried it in a while, but I'm going to start again.

Moose has endless energy. Even at 3 he's just full of it. But, when he can't expend that energy and we're on a calm walk and he sees a dog he thinks he gets to play with and can't, all of his spazziness explodes. He jumps at my hands as I have them up with the leash and it looks like he's attacking me.

You need to start teaching "leave it" and have "sit" and "down" solid.
Is she getting enough physical exercise? Just because she's big doesn't mean she doesn't need lots and lots of exercise.
Also, carry a tug toy outside with you. The second she starts jumping, redirect her with that. Then after a while, she has to sit to get the tug toy.

Sounds like an energetic puppy to me.

Behavior & Training > so, what's the scariest dog experience you've had?

I remember this thread. Oh how things have changed. My scariest dog experience is now quite different than what I posted 4 yrs ago. As most of you know.
Hopefully I'll never have an experience that tops it.

Rereading some of the stories on here still give me chills.

Thank you everyone for the well wishes. I'm glad you all are still here and some piece of Dogster continues as it always has.
Just felt that a story of how awesome Moose was when this went down was something that I wanted to share.
