*Never reinforce/reward behaviour that you don't want your dog to do!
*Always reinforce/reward behaviour that you do want your dog to do!
It sounds easy right? Well it is, but it takes patience and practice! If you never reward bad behaviour and only reward calm behaviour, your dog will learn to be more patient and relaxed!
Things to practice every day!
* Wait till your dog is calm to leave the house for a walk/car ride
* If your dog pulls you out the door go back make him sit and do it again until he walks out slowly
* Don't give your dog dinner till he is sitting or lying down calmly
* Don't give your dog attention when he is behaving badly or being hyperactive
