Get the regular Chicken and Rice Naturals and feed 1/4 below the max recommended amount. LB is lamb and high energy dogs may noy digest it as well.

Crate the dog, but I would give him something with her scent on it at first. Pick up the stuff he chews. You don't want to risk a perforated intestine. Have HER train him on simple behaviors like a down-stay and don't let him be pushy. If he is strong willed and fairly smart, look into NILIF.
