    my Juta is 5 months old and super energetic.
    Is she going to be this way all the time or she will be bit more calm when she grow a little say 18 moths ?

    My family had basensji which was crazy as a puppy but get all right by the time it get adult.

    Probably. I think Dobes are also very 'puppy like' until about 2 so... find a job for your pooch to tire her out and life will be much easier!

    It depends on your dogs drives but most will settle down some by 3-4 years of age.

    After we got Kaiser I did some online test about what the perfect breed for us would be and the Basenji came up due to its independent cat like nature :laughing:Without experiencing an actual Basenji I would say the Doberman seems kinda the opposite lol. Plus the boys mature slower and you haven't even hit the Doberteens yet! Aren't we lucky :spit:

    K is 2 now and he seems to have become a bit more serious. Less play bowing to other dogs, less interest in new people. I would say that K showed improvement every 6 months.

    My two are starting to settle a little bit from a Cat 5 to a (maybe) Cat 3.:rofl:
    They are 2 1/2yrs. old. They just have a lot of energy and drive and require daily mental and physical stimulation but for the most part are really good and obedient pups. They are beyond their shredding everything in sight stage... thank goodness.

    Blaze won’t be 2 until November and his drive of crazy is probably still getting higher but with all of his obedience he is able to cap it some of the time. Prada is 4 1/2 and had calmed down some but if she is out with Blaze she resorts back to crazy bitch :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Funny how the females can transform back to crazy bitch so easily and it is considered “normal.” :D:D:D:D

    I find that exercise and lots of stimulation help a ton. Just remember there is a fine line between wearing them out of building stamina.
    I think the thing that helped the most was a routine. They just learned what to expect and when to expect it. Yes life happens and there are times our schedule gets interrupted, but for the most part we stick to schedule and it helps a lot.

    Nero definitely has calmed. He has lots of puppy left in him but prefers his mornings on the couch. Lol
