Hi all we have recently added a wonderful little border collie to our family. He is now 13 weeks old. I am hoping to get some tips to help him learn to settle. He is a very smart dog and full of collie puppy energy! He is now able to go out for walks and I make sure he is getting off lead running during his walks and we also work on training on walks such as sit and heel and walking nicely on his lead etc... At home he has several (4 or so) short training sessions a day. I am clicker training with him and so far he has learned sit, down, watch, drop, leave it,touch, paw, spin, twist and roll over. Obviously some of these aren't fully learned and we continue to work on the basics such as sit, down, watch etc at many opportunities throughout the day. We have also been socialising him in many different situations and at home he has our 3 yr old dog Bella to play with. He has lots of toys (although in fairness may need some new ones which he is getting for Christmas!) including chews and Nina Otterson toys. However, despite all of that this week he has seemed ALWAYS on the go, constantly looking for stuff to do and getting into mischief if I can not give him attention for 1/2 hour. I think that instead of adding more and more stuff in to tire him out I really need to try to teach him how to settle on his own for a while, but not sure how. He has a crate that he sleeps in at night. He sleeps great, from 10/11 to 6.30. We tend not to use his crate in the day, but he has another bed next to Bella's in the kitchen that he uses. We are starting to teach him "bed" to send him to his bed which he is getting slowly. Wondering though how we could teach him to just settle when he is in the lounge with us and either play with a toy calmly or settle and nap. Any help would be much appreciated as I am running out of ideas to keep him occupied!!
