Solving Hyperactive Behaviors
Hyperactivity is one of the most common behavioral issues trainers see in their clients’ dogs, just ask our fellow dog trainer in Portland. For owners, it can be embarrassing, exhausting, and frustrating – it feels like you can throw the ball a thousand times and your dog is still bouncing off the walls. If you have guests over, it can be embarrassing to have a dog jumping around and not listening to commands. It can also make an owner worried – what will happen in an emergency situation when your dog doesn’t listen? Hyperactivity can be dangerous for other smaller members of your pack, or your children, who may not be able to fend off an excitable dog.
While your dog isn’t being aggressive or intentionally harmful, too much barking/running/licking/jumping can eventually degrade your relationship with your dog, and we understand the frustration when your dog doesn’t listen to “stop it.” It creates stress and exhaustion for the both of you, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
Luckily, despite how annoying it can be, hyperactivity is a perfectly correctable behavior and very common. Expert dog trainer, Cheryl Kocher at Raise the Bar Dog Training in Cincinnati has met with countless owners who were fed up with their hyper dog and worked together to find lasting solutions that changed the behaviors for the better. She will work with you to make sure you know exactly what and how your dog is learning so that you are both equally prepared.
We believe that there is no behavior that cannot be corrected with love and patience. All dogs have the ability to relearn & change – it just might take some time. By setting reliable and routine house rules and providing a consistent behavioral foundation for your dog to refer to, our expert dog trainer can start getting your pet to where you need them to be.
