Help your dog relaxMany high-energy dogs need to be taught to relax. Otherwise, it can be very frustrating to have a dog who is constantly whining or patting you for attention and play.

It is important to understand that every dog has different energy levels and personalities. Some dogs may need more training to relax than others. For example, some breeds like Australian Shepherds or Border Collies are known for their high energy levels and need a lot of mental and physical stimulation. On the other hand, some breeds like Bulldogs or Basset Hounds are generally more relaxed and calm. Therefore, it is crucial to take your dog’s breed and personality into consideration when teaching them to relax.

Physical exercise is important but a lot of physical exercise builds up stamina and your dog will need more exercise to be relaxed. Dogo training, puzzle/ scent games, and chew toys are great for tiring your dog out.

While physical exercise is important, mental stimulation is equally important for a dog’s overall well-being. You can try teaching your dog new tricks, providing interactive toys that require problem-solving skills, or playing scent games that will engage their sense of smell. Mental stimulation can help tire your dog out just as much as physical exercise. Additionally, dogs need a sense of purpose and structure in their daily routine. By setting up a routine for your dog that includes training sessions, playtime, and relaxation time, you can help them understand what is expected of them and reduce their anxiety.

Don’t forget to reward and pay attention to your dog when they are calm and relaxing. We want to show them that calm behaviour is something that we appreciate.

Positive reinforcement is a powerful tool in dog training. When your dog is calm and relaxed, reward them with praise, treats, or affection. This will reinforce the idea that calm behavior is desirable and will encourage them to repeat it in the future. However, it is important to note that every dog is different and may respond better to different types of rewards. Some dogs may prefer verbal praise over treats, while others may be motivated by playtime or a favorite toy. It is important to experiment and find out what motivates your dog the most. Additionally, it is important to be consistent in your training and not give mixed signals. If you reward your dog for calm behavior one day and then scold them for the same behavior the next day, it can be confusing for them and hinder their progress.
