Hyperactivity – Is There an Answer

tosh-smDogs are just about the most loyal animal you can find. Were you aware they too can exhibit hyperactivity just like people?

Know your breed!! Some breeds are more hyper than others. Sadly, when humans can’t handle the dog because of their hyper nature, the animal ends up at a shelter. Let’s not watch this happen. Learn the characteristics of the dog you wish to adopt. Understand how your schedule is going to affect the dog.
When our schedules are jam-packed, the dogs boundless displays of energy can make any dog owner feel like they are going to lose their mind.

Here are some helpful tips.

1) Make sure your dog is getting plenty of exercise. A tired dog is a good dog, and there is nothing better for soothing a wild beast than a great workout. A workout makes humans feel better, and it does the same for our four-legged friends too. Playing fetch, going for a jog, swim or even just a long walk can exhaust your dog in a short amount of time.

Making your dog think for what he/she wants is great for them…the treat release is an added reward letting them know they did well.

3) Obedience Training. This isn’t about teaching your dog how to do tricks. It’s about your dog bonding and spending time with you. It’s also about learning basic manners and commands that will make every other activity you take on a little easier and more rewarding.

If you still have difficulties with your pet, consult your veterinarian. They may have more solutions that can help or may recommend a special trainer who can help you both along your journey.
