yep, he needs more exercise then that! Unless you can do like 4 hr walks daily.
Thats odd, Oscar only does the flea biting when he gets a good scratch in the right place on his neck, I never thought of it as an excitement thing (or maybe for him it isn't).
However, you still need to address the problem. I'm sure people with more training experience will chime in here, but I'll tell you what I'd do. I'd either quiety take the dog and put him in his crate(if you have a crate), make it an impartial deal, you just take him, put him in, and shut the door. Or, you could redirect him onto a chewy toy (but if he's that worked up I doubt that would work), or, teach him an obedience command, and make sure he does it (but this may involve a lot of repeated getting up from sitting in the first few nights).
Keep in mind, you may want to mention to your roommates that nothing will be instantaneous, I know a lot of people expect that. While you try your new method Cooper WILL test you to see if you are going to follow through or if he can go back to rampaging and terrorizing.
If he is like this then I'd say you've got your work cut out for you! But its not impossible, my dog was the same when he was younger and we made it through
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.
