Hello, I am new to the forum. I have a almost 3 yr old male bearded collie who has always been very hyper and full of himself. I do daily training and agility with him and he has a female bouvier play mate who romps around our huge garden with him all day, so he gets PLENTY of exercise, stimulation and companionship .
He has always tackled / body slammed her when people arrive despite punishment of various types, as he always has to be the first to greet, the first to jump, the first to do everything, and steals all her toys and games.
As he has gotten older he has become progressively worse and gets himself so wound up if I stop him body slamming her or stealing her toys he actually passes out from frustration and or barking exhaustion , which is very worrying.
I have had to limit his play to only 5 frizbee throws at a time as once again he barks so much and gets so excited he wobbles around like he is drunk and then collapses... only for a few moments but he will get up and the imbalance and falling over goes on for a good 20 - 30 minutes until he is calm again. The same with his agility training and lead training... so much noise and barking and not sure weather it is frustration or excitement but the same thing is happening and more frequently.
The worst is as I have toned down any serious exercise or play in order to keep the excitement level down he is getting out of hand from lack of stimulation and I feel like I am in an egg and chicken situation.
Does anyone have any advice for me ??? if so I would really appreciate it .
