    My six month old berner, Digory, hops like a kangaroo. Like all the time. He literally gets up on his back legs and jumps with those, all four paws off the ground. And if he's not doing that he's leaping everywhere. It just seems like a giant puppy shouldn't be able to do that! And he ends up knocking so many things over :eek: just too excited for his own good, poor guy. Does anyone else see this behavior in their berners?

    Any tips for getting an excited puppy to keep his giant paws on the ground?

    We don't have the hopping problem, although Gypsy loves to stand up on her back legs...a lot! She gets way too overexcited and does this crazy 'bucking bronco' thing with her front and back ends going in different directions, while she alternatively lifts front and back legs.
