5 Tips To Keep Your Dog Calm

1. Have your pet do additional exercise.

Taking your pet for an extra long walk, practice a dog sport or a longer playtime can help them spend excess energy before the event.

2. Ask your guests, including children, to calmly greet your dog as they arrive.

An overly-excited greeting can excite your pet and if done repeatedly, it can significantly rise their energy levels for the duration of the event.

3. Help your dog relax with a supplement.

Calming products can help your pet relieve hyperactivity, restlessness, fear, nervousness and aggression, helping antsy pets remain calm and sleep soundly.


4. Entertain your pet with a toy.

Use toys as a tool to distract your pet from shoving or jumping on guests to get their attention. Your pet’s favorite toy or one with hiding places for treats tend to be the most effective.

5. Reward your dog’s good behavior throughout the event.

Ask your guests to refrain from feeding your pet their food, even if it is meant as a treat, as it may cause your dog to try to jump on them or constantly tug at them to ask for more. Give them their usual treats instead, as a reward for their calm demeanor.
