The stubborn-ness is amazing though, it may be that he's a little over a year old and still has those puppy qualities. When we run together he has learned not to pull. His instincts are to pull, and so getting him to run beside me was quite a task.
I forgot to mention that in November of last year I watched him come very close to catching a small doe. Our property is underground fenced, and luckily for the doe she ran in the direction of the closest line. He was right on her ass when she went over and he stopped before receiving a correction. What he would have done if he caught it? No idea, but I have a huge freezer ready in case he ever snags one. LOL
See about training him to do things that are like work. Working breeds like to work. My current lust is a kuchi (the Afghan bear-dogs) and I know I'm gonna have to work him or I'll have a hyperactive pup that is stronger than me trying to catch alligators. My sister's Malemute was hyperactive too, but when I came over I tried my best to wear that dog out. Tug-of-war was the best. After an hour or so, Rose would just follow me around and lay dow at my feet. Sister was amazed, until the next day when Rose was back to trying to play tug-of-war wiith anything smaller than a car.
Got a sled dog? I envision a pulk sled with dog harness in your future, and a very happy pup.
