    Bryson just had about an hour and a half of crazy overtiredness, hehe, ususally he sleeps from half 10 till about half 11 but today it seemed like he forgot that it was nap time and caused mayhem :001_tongue: He really is like a toddler sometimes :blush: Before I had him I had no clue that dogs could ever get overtired!

    Do you have a crate or enclosed space you could put him? Our crate was a godsend for when Tummel got overtired as he'd always conk out within minutes of going in there.

    Overtiredness isn't a good thing to have running around, Tummel was a complete nightmare when he got overtired :eek:

    I'm still working on his crate training, safe to say he still hates it, so I didnt want to put him in cuz he works him self up something terrible, but we're getting there slowly ;) He finally fell asleep in my lap now, thank god, I was at my witts end there for a minute... He thinks chewing on the chairs are the best thing ever right now, oh the joys of having a puppy (I do love it tho ;) )

    Haha people think I am nuts when I describe Prince as being like a toddler and getting over tired! But it's just what it's like!

    My neighbour has a young child and we had sympathy for her when her lad was playing her up so she understands when we say "oh, you know, she's over-tired".

    I've had a pup that would fall asleep having a belly rub on the lap she was a springerxwsd but the WSD just took herself off out of the way, this one's a BC and slopes off. She did have a crate for overnight but she's been unable to sleep in one place for long from day 1 so now I have a puppy pen for her instead so she can curl up in her bed, stretch out to cool off or just lay flat on the cool lino.
