Tip of the Day : 22 April

Control a hyperactive dog

If your dog is hyperactive, it is important to master him so that your life does not become a hell. Here are some tips from experts.

A dog must be trained and educated. There are adapted to train dogs.
When we walk, we must not be carried away by our dog, we must maintain control. When the dog begins to turn from the way we chose, he should immediately return the correct path, so that he understands that he should focus on his master first.

Reward is an important element of education, but it must be done at the right time, that is to say it is only when the dog is calm and he behaves correctly.
We must always stay calm. Shouting on our dog only reinforces bad behavior. And when we are tense, the dog feels it and reacts the same way.
A hyperactive dog needs to spend its energy and the best way to do this is to take him on long walks.

Dogs are animals that need to have a leader, if they don't have one, they are the ones who are goint to take that position. We must never let the dog take control. For example, it must always be the master who walks in the door before the dog. The master should also always eat before the dog.
A dog does not get on the sofa without the express permission of his master and must get down as soon as his master orders it.

If a dog is just too aggressive, it is perhaps not suitable for the family with whom he is.
