    When my sister, her husband and 3 kids were down they were here over a month and he never got a break. It was non-stop attention/playing. Now that they went home and it's just me and him, he has become a monster.

    I came home to the arm of the recliner completely destroyed along with a few other items. I did expect this type of reaction so now I (more like he does) wants to play a lot more.

    Solution... ..Hired the neighborhood kids to take him out for more walks and play with him. He loves it and the kids enjoy the (aww) it's a puppy aspect.

    Now when he comes home he's tired enough to get some rest and the kids make a little cash.

    That is unusual for Pongo! If you need a break you know I am more than happy to have him :)

    Aw, thank you! He's fine really, it's just odd behaviour for him. But reading all this thread makes me think it is a Christmas hangover, and he just needs to get back into his routine. I'm taking it as an opportunity for doing a little more training and playing with him (using up Christmas leftovers as treats ;)). Next time you see him he'll have lots of new tricks..... NOT!
    Happy new year and see you soon!

    It properly is Xmas hangover because everything is so different and goes on for 2 weeks, not just the odd day like birthdays. I'm sure he will be able to teach Harley lots of new tricks ;)
