How to calm an overactive dog

All  dogs are energetic but some are more energetic than others. Dogs need physical and mental stimulation just like us.  When we’re at work, we forget that our dogs are at home bored. That’s when the destruction begins. Here are some simple things you can do to clam an energetic dog.

  • Play with your dog everyday.  Play with a frisbee, catch etc . This will make your dog more obedient and establish a stronger bond between the two of you.
  • Walk your dog about three times a day. One of those walks should be at least 30 minutes.
  • Train your dog everyday. This could be as asking him for an obedience command before giving him a treat.
  • Make your dog work for all of his food through training, grooming or dog toys.
  • Provide your dog with safe chew toys and food toys when he’s home alone.

Remember, your pets count!
