How to Calm Down a High-Energy Dog

If your pup’s rambunctious energy is driving you up a wall, we understand how overwhelming that can feel. But all too often, the root cause isn’t that your dog is hyperactive: all that energy comes from a lack of stimulation.

While it varies from breed to breed, many dogs need a lot of exercise and activity on a regular basis, and if they don’t get it, that energy can become pent up and send them into overdrive. That’s why the best solution for a high-energy dog is often as simple as getting a bit of exercise. Take your dog for a walk, bring them to the dog park, or start up a good ol’ game of tug of war. Giving your pup the opportunity to expend energy will help calm them down to more normal energy levels.

In addition to physical exercise, exercising your dog’s mind can be another great way to release excess energy. Teach your pup tricks, train them using nosework, or give them another task that engages their mind. Doing this will not only release energy, but also instill discipline and strengthen the bond between you and your furry friend.
