Sounds like your puppy needs more crate time. This behaviour is normal for puppies and should be expected. Unless you enjoy having your house and stuff ruined put him in the crate unless you can be there to watch the pups every move. I have a female AB who will be 2 in December and she is still crated much of the time. She still has way to much energy and likes to destroy things too much to allow her any unsupervised freedom. I always say if a puppy or young dog is ruining things in the house its the owners fault. You can't blame a puppy for just being a puppy. They are supposed to be full of piss and vinegar.
