One thing that stuck out for me was that the author mentions that the dog's behavior improved when she started to add obedience into the games of fetch. Is it possible that the dog had just never been taught how to settle down once he got excited? I see lots of dogs like this. They have no off switch, because no one ever taught them how to settle down and control themselves. It's often true that they could use more mental stimulation, but they also need to learn some self-control.
