Dreadful as a puppy, turned into a beautiful dog

Barnie was a nightmare puppy - hyperactive, jumped up all the time, took quite a bit of housetraining, but it wasn't his fault. We realised we were part of the problem and did a lot of reading on what we were doing wrong. We had to really assert his position in the pack (ie much lower than either of us!). Once we got that right he has turned into a beautiful dog. BUT it took a lot of time, patience and reinforcement to get him to this point. He is very boisterous and needs a lot of exercise.
