LOL...Heidi, it seems to me that in order to engage him anymore than you already are you are going to need more hours in your day! Sounds like you are doing a terrific job.
I was about to post the same thing!
You must be exhausted!! Your puppy parenting is putting a lot of us to shame ;) You are doing great and have one lucky puppy!
3-months-old now. I just want to keep him happy!
I thought at 8 weeks puppies shouldn't be taken out on walks longer than 10 minutes at a time? I guess so long as they're not being dragged around that's fine, though.
And dogs need as much stimulation as they need, and they can get it in many ways- not necessarily with you. It could be a great chew toy they gnaw on, or a squeeky toy for them to destroy. I read somewhere that a young puppy sleeps 20 hours a day! I think the most engaging and tiring thing you could do is to teach commands and tricks. If you're engaging the puppy's mind and he or she is learning, that's the best thing you can do.
It sounds like Milton is getting enough stimulation. I'm also a school teacher and got Hops during my time off. It's going to be really tough once you have to get back to work and not have the time to do all those things with him!
