We've just bought two female Staffy pups from a friend of ours out of their bitch's first litter. Both are currently eight weeks old and we have had them about ten days now.
We live in a three bedroom townhouse with a modest backyard (although in the market for something bigger). We also have two adult cats.
Our two pups seem to have boundless energy when they are not sleeping. Walks to the park/oval knock them out for a while and then it is all a hundred miles an hour again (zooming around just after midnight as I type). We currently sleep them together in the bathroom with the heater on (cold in Canberra atm) and the door shut, and also put them in there if we are all going to be out of the house.
They have a few toys to play with but are still into everything else and we are having to barricade rooms and it feels like we need to suspend everything from the ceiling.
Also, their aggressive play, which we understand is in part just puppyhood, has had both our children (7 & 5) in tears with nips and scratches.
We plan to have them in puppy preschool but there are no openings in classes near us for about another three weeks.
Suggestions on how to stimulate/educate/exercise/exhaust this pair would be gratefully received.
