  • I would start kennel traing the puppy while the son is at work. Also the son should be walking the puppy before and after work. We have an extremely hyper puppy that we have to walk 2 times a day and play in the yard with for at least 20 minutes 3 times a day. Whenever we leave the house the puppy is put in a kennel. If the son won't contribute taking care of his puppy then maybe the dog should be rehomed. Labs need to be excercised and it sounds like your MIL son isn't helping.
