You Will Need
- Dog jobs
- Exercise session
- Calm state of mind
- Aromatherapy scents
- Pool or lake (optional)
Be calm. Withdraw attention from an overexcited dog--don't make eye contact, touch or talk to the dog to quickly quiet them.
Put the dog to work
Put an overactive dog to work, providing a task with a clear beginning and end to help channel energy in a positive way.
Exercise the pooch
Exercise an overactive pooch with a brisk walk to release energy, and it may become too tired to nip and jump.
Show a calm, assertive state of mind to encourage and create balanced dog behavior, because canines reflect a human's energy.
Try aromatherapy to calm a rambunctious and overactive dog, following your veterinarian's advice about the best scents and safe dispersal methods. Nurture balance and stability in a dog and you just might renew your own inner calm as well.
