Puppies are bundles of energy. And it does not matter what breed it is. You must be prepared for it and you should help them to exhaust the energy. Today i will tell you how i exhaust and calm down my 7 months old Labrador puppy.
Training should be the first thing in the morning you will be doing with your puppy. It will not be that physically exhausting, but it is great as a mental excercise. My routine with Andy is, that we wake up, we go for a walk and during the walk we train the commands he already now. During the day, i am teaching him some new and more difficult commands.
If you want to exhaust your dog physically, fetch is the best way how to do that. This is the easiest way how to exhaust your dog physically while you stay calm. Playing fetch is easy and fun activity for both sides. But sometimes you cant go out playing fetch and you dont want to break things in your apartment. Than you can play other physical games with your dog inside – like tug of war. This will exhaust your dog pretty quickly, but it will exhaust you as well. Important thing is, that you should control over your dogs power, because this game can potentionally brings out the predator instincts of your pupperino.
There are so many other physically demanding games you can try with your dog. You can try play Frisbee or just play with Flirt Pole. Or if you do not buy these things, you can always play the classic – Hide and Treat.
