Hyperactive dogs are in a sense high drive dogs. That high drive made them the ultimate working dogs. In our present day these dogs have become companion dogs and members of our family. Without a “job” or a way to expend that drive your dogs energy can manifest into unwanted behaviors.
Exercise is an important part of lowering your dogs energy level, but physical exercise alone doesn’t always solve the problem. Dog obedience training has a better impact on lowering your dog’s mental energy. It teaches your dog boundaries and self control. It also provides you a better relationship with your dog that is not based on screaming, yelling and frustration. Having control of your dog will give you the ability to take your dog anywhere and spend more time with the family and not at home.
