3 Ways to Help Calm Your Hyper Dog

Does it feel like your dog always has a lot of energy and is just bouncing off the walls? In many cases, you're not alone as many dogs, especially puppies have tons of energy which may make them seem hyper. Having a dog that is super hyper can be exhausting, however it is completely normal and there are ways you can help them burn off some of their energy.


Use a Dog Crate

Some dog owners hesitate to put their dogs in a crate, thinking that it may be cruel. However, that's not the case and it can train your dog as it promotes calm behavior by providing a cozy and safe place for your dog to relax in. Naturally, dogs tend to seek out small, enclosed spaces so that's what a crate accomplishes. It can help reduce your dog's separation anxiety, speed up their potty training, and prevent bad habits such as destructive chewing and excessive barking. You can also use it to set up a regular routine, letting your dog know when they can come out to eat, play, and use the bathroom. When you incorporate those set times for playtime, it can help your dog learn to calmly wait and realize that there is a set time for everything.
 

Invest in Play Toys

If your dog is super hyper, it's essential to purchase the right toys to help them burn off all that energy. When you don't have any other toys lying around the house to keep your dog busy, it can cause hyperactive dogs to develop other bad habits such as chewing and scratching at your personal items and furniture. Puzzle toys are a great mental stimulate, providing them a challenging task to keep them preoccupied. Chew toys are also a fantastic choice, especially if your dog is teething, to keep them off your beloved shoes and pillows. Fetch toys are also perfect for high-energy, active dogs that need more running in their daily routine.

Natural Calming Supplements

Does your dog only show bouts of energy during certain circumstances? Perhaps your dog is experiencing stress or anxiety due to environmental factors such as thunderstorms and fireworks or situations such as being transported in the car and when you leave your dog at home. In this case, you can consider using natural supplements to help calm your furry canine. You can try Petaxin Calm + Comfort Aid which contains a safe, natural blend of L-Tryptophan, Hemp Seed oil, and various herbs to help soothe your dog in as little as 30 minutes!
