Be careful. Once the dog grows up and calms down it will spend large portions of time sleeping. The solution then is to get another puppy, and next thing you know you're addicted and running a kennel, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

For example, my Australian Kelpie is now about eight years old. She spends most of her day sleeping. She has to be let in or out once every few hours so she can look for kitties, and I take her for a 20 minute walk in the evenings before bed. She spends the rest of the day napping while I program, read, or play games.
