    Hi Amy and Dakota! Welcome to the Dog Trick Academy! How much daily exercise does she get?

    WELCOME!!!!:LOL: Like Jean said, how much exercise is Dakota getting???? It might be the root of the problems...
    That might be a way for her to get rid of all that bent up energy, or to just say " MOM, I'm bored!"
    Have you tried trick training or agility with Dakota??? It is a GREAT way to get rid of "excess" energy and a GREAT mental activity for your dog!!!!:D
    Also, do you/will you use a clicker??? AWESOME training tools!!!!(y)

    Like Dogster and Jean said she may need more exercise. Agility is a great way to get rid of energy but if you do agility remember she is a puppy and can only do very low jumps cause her bones aren't done growing. Maybe you could find a place around were you live that offers puppy agility. Of course there are other ways to get rid of excess energy like two walks a day(check how long a puppy of 7months should be walked to long isn't good for a pup) with play time in between and training such as sit lay down, stay come and other essential things a pup should be taught.
