Our German Shepard is so damn hyper, we can hardly keep her in the house. We have a 13 month old baby, who she literally knocks over when she is in the house. We are hoping to walk her more often once it get warmer, so she can get most of that nervous energy out, but I am also hoping once she has surgery next week, we will see some differenceAnswer Question
We had our dog fixed and 8 years later he is still hyper and he is a beagle. So I really don't know.

It should. Also talk to your vet, they actually have meds for dogs that are extra hyper. Its just like with people. Sometimes they are just too hyper. Thus the need for the medications. You also still need to remember she is only 6 months old. Dogs, especially shepherds act like puppies for at least two years. Well thats at least what mine did. Rocky is now 5 years old, and only now I am seeing the changes in him. He is less crazy, less hyper. I also run him every day, so I am sure it helps. But I also give him jobs around the house. You know what they say shepherds are working dogs, and they need to work to keep them selves busy. Otherwise they will destroy your house. Let us know how she is doing once she is fixed.

Do you have a treadmill? If so, dogs can be trained to walk on the treadmill. It is a great way to get them exercise when it is cold outside. Check out Cesar Millan for training tips. A tired dog is a good dog (same goes for kids) ...you just can't expect them to behave when they have all that pent up energy.
