Congrats! How old? Don't forget to post pics!

Depends on your dog and your needs, I guess. Me? I like a martingale collar (it's a limited slip collar, tightens to a certain point if dog pulls but won't choke him and he can't slip out) and my well-worked leather leash. (J&J Dog Supply leashes, which are braided, not stitched).

I have some nylon leashes, they work okay with Murphy and Riley, both older dogs, and neither of whom will pull when wearing a collar. With my youngster, Michaela, who is apt to lunge at birds, rabbits, frogs, squirrels, dogs, etc., I like my leather leash best since I've gotten burned (literally) when the nylon leash slid through my hand before I could tighten my grip.

All of my dogs go to puppy (if they're at that age) and/or basic obedience classes. If they like that game, I'll continue into competitive obedience or Rally-O with them, If not, I find what they like (agility, barn hunt, nosework, tracking, urban mushing, lure coursing) and we'll do that. I've had a couple of dogs who just liked hiking and woods walking, so we did that. The point is to do something with your dog, to keep them active and engaged.

Thanks! He is 5 and was surrendered by his owner because he's "hyper".. It was love at first sight!

I bought a martingale collar and a thick nylon leash. I am visiting him again tomorrow and will interact with him more. I have to wait on bringing him home until his dog run is set up. I work so he needs some place secure to be when I'm not home. Otherwise he will be inside with us.

That is like asking a group of men at a bar what is the best beer or shot.
It is all a matter of opinion.

However, forget about Wal Mart (Fall-A-Part Mart is what you need to remember: Chinese eat dogs, so never trust what they make for dogs!).

What are you using for a run?

Don't go "cheap".

Also, be sure he spends some time in it supervised before you leave him in it all day. Watch his behavior -- is he looking for a way out, etc. Watch him while you are there, then leave and observe for a while from a distance, leave for short time and then come back, etc. Show him you will return by returning in a fairly short time.

Good points. I also have a 'leaving ritual'; I do the same thing/say the same words every time I leave (everyone gets a biscuit, everyone is told to be good and watch the house). The dogs have learned I always come back, so no one worries and they go find the best places to snooze or a cow hoof/horn to chew on.

The only other questions I would have are can his dog run be seen easily from road or sidewalk? Can anyone walk onto your property to access it? Not trying to be paranoid (okay, maybe a little), but I don't trust John Q Public any further than I can throw them.

I'd suggest finding the thickest leash available. My Opie is great not chewing on his leash, Lyla, however, is like 8 months and has chewed through 2 leashes and this current leash is about to break too. GO THICK!!

Hey, First things first, congrats on such a handsom dog. Second, I have a pretty energetic dog as well. She is very well trained so on a leash she walks right next to me, but she has a habit if breaking chains when I need to leave her for a bit. (I live in an ache age, so she has a long chain to fun on.) here's what I ended up doing, so I can choose to use the choke chain of not. It's more of a training tool, and after much observation I ha e decided that se is safe with a collar like this. It's nice because I can hook up the leather collar and choker, and I'd she breaks the leather one there is a secondary. I would only recommend this to someone with a set up like mine tho.
Hope this helps.
