My little monster has lots of energy, you can always tell when he needs to go for a big walk because he starts going a little bonkers and misbehaving. When this happens we like to take him on a big walk and go exploring, let him lead the way. This usually results in lots of running up hills, chasing birds, and sniffing trees. By the time we return home he is back to his happy self again. He is a little high maintenance as far as pets go, but then again I am a little high maintenance too.
