OK, where are these dogs off switch. 1 mile walk to the beach, two hours swimming after a ball and two human brothers and digging in the sand, 1 mile walk back to car. 20 minute nap on car ride home. Walk in the door and it wrestle mania with sister who is suppose to be taking it easy since she cute her paw pad at the beach Sunday. Red is a 11 month old neutered foster dog here and man is he a full time job.

There is NO off switch at that age. My boy is 3 1/2 and still has fun-filled days like that. He's settling down a little as he gets older but he's always game for a good time with humans or dog buddies. It was the "power nap" in the car on the ride home that recharged him for play time back at the house. :naughty:

:roll1:Rusty is almost 2 1/2 and he doesn't turn off. I swear he sleeps with one eye open. The "they calm down when they turn 2" does not apply here. My BF thinks that the more exercise Rusty gets the more hyper he gets like his batteries get charged up or something!

Off Switch? Didn't you read the manual? First you have to wait until the are large and grown enough for their OBM, then after a period of time the human controlled off switch may be installed, and finally when they are so old you are totally used to it, then you may qualify for a doggy controlled off switch :roll1:

Ummm.... Darcy didn't come with an off switch either. He is 18 months old and raring to go again after a short power nap.

My girl Dyna who I have had since she was a 5 week old foster here and is just now 1 yr. (yes, I am a failed foster mom) has a "off" switch. Although always ready to go Dyna can just chill as needed. When out doing farm chores she'll get up on the quad and sleep (have a platform with mat on back rack) well I am parked doing some thing. Not Red, he just runs around "helping" me. Want the sheep mom? want the cows? want the neighbors sheep or cows or here let me get that hammer, you need these nails? as he is running off with the can of nails and hammer and fence cutters. Man, I love my cattle kids.
They both are sleeping on my feet now. If I move even a inch there up and ready.

I found Opies off switch! Just take the little bouncing, pacing, racing around, hyper out of his mind, fur ball to the obedience ring- instant low gear! I would think somebody is slipping the boy Valium, but take him home and he turns back into the Energizer bunny.:s4:

Off switch...NOW THAT IS FUNNY! Ding will be 9 in a few weeks and we're still desperately trying to locate the mythical off switch.

Good luck with that! :roll1:

OK I have to get you guys a picture of this tonight but Indy does have on and off buttons. They are located on either side of his little butt. :naughty: Unfortunately the off switch has NEVER worked. :s4: That boy is switched on all the time. :naughty:

Ozzie's off switch works great - he goes comotose for about 5 minutes, then is fully recharged for the next 4 hours.

After I posted last night Ding and Tugger went on a Zoomies binge that was just plain WILD. All we could do was laugh.

Tonight we've been playing Frisbee (and chasing birds) for the past 2 1/2 hours.

Please, please let me know when somebody locates the ACD off switch.

What's an off switch? I have 3 ACD's and have found no off switchs. My 3 range in age from 8,4, and 3. I'm still waiting for OBM's on my 4 and 3 year old boys. Maybe then I can figure out an off switch. Welcome to the world of ACD's.

Aloha,

You guys are Funny. :roll1:

Off switch??????

God slipped up when he made ACDs. Either that or his "Off switch" bin was empty at the time.

Mine are here "sleeping?" at my feet, one is snoring, If I make any move other than typing, they're rolling.

I swear that they sleep with both eyes open and on full alert

I thought that Lucy had one, but it turned out to be a body spot. :roll1:
