13 Ways To Relax Your Dog

caring for puppy

Sometimes dogs can be hyper and full of all sorts of playful energy. Puppies especially have a significant amount of energy but they usually grow out of it.

However, if you have an athletic breed, your dog can continue to be hyper until he gets fairly old. In the case that you want to calm your dog down, there are certain things you can do to relax him.

1. Rub Under His Chin

If your dog is being crazy and you cannot get him to calm down, start rubbing underneath his chin. It will calm him down quickly. Among dogs, this is considered a sign of respect and affection, love, and it is the way puppies greet adult dogs.

When you do the same thing, they will know you are not trying to hurt them, but to start a loving time of relaxation, cuddle and petting.

Also, not every dog enjoys the same thing, so you will have to learn and try different techniques, and you’ll see that many approaches which are suitable for your dog are not that great for others. Dogs are like humans.

The way you pet them can make you his favorite person, or the person he will always try to avoid. Certain petting tactics send most dogs running in the other direction, not friendly one, while other strategies will have a dog tail-wagging happy in your hands.
