Ok, some progress, here.  I am now getting him some exercise in the morning before work, same ball-throwing routine we do after work.  (The dog is too smart for his own good!  After doing that exactly twice, he now zips to the spot where the ball is, and turns in circles waiting for his "morning romp".)  But, he is easy to control and very obedient and attentive, so I'm able to exercise him around our suburban property, without having to take him elsewhere.  I have also done "mock" leavings and have also come home at different times, so he doesnt key in as much on what's "normal".  I'm optimistic, thanks for the advice!  (Now, if he would only get along with my Rottie! That's another topic.)
