I have a 4 month old Pyr. He is by far the most hyper animal we have owned. He cannot get through two commands without losing attention and rolling around on the ground. He continues to prove untrustworthy even though he was born at a farm with chickens and turkeys. I know many people think they are wonderful but I don't see it in this particular dog. I've had labs, poodles, huskies, chows, aussies, etc. The Pyr is the least intelligent. He is beginning to growl when fed. He walks well on a lead (95% of the time) but when he feels like pulling he will not respond to commands. He is constantly all over any person or pet near enough to pounce. As he grows this is going to become a major issue. My question is will he outgrow this? Will he calm down with age? Will he always need supervision? I've lost two adults to rough handling and up to a dozen chicks were ate. They free range and the dog is on a run or walking on a lead. I tie him to me all day yet his manners are no better than the day we got him. His size now means I can't get anything done and I know he's not going to improve if I leave him alone on a run. Any suggestions?
