The dog stirred

Some dogs do not take up.The manifestations of this agitation are barking,jumping,pulling on the leash,fifty round trips along the Garden … Apartment Life is hard. The dog mounted on the seats,having descended at every opportunity.He sleeps very little.This irritates the master who could no longer stand the dog,growls or avoids contact.The dog will then try to get her attention by struggling even more.We must quickly find a solution,because the agitation,as the destruction is a common cause of separation.

The immediate causes:


Anxiety is often associated with predisposing causes, the catalyst that allows the onset of the disorder.The dog can not control himself when he sees the upcoming departure of his master,when he is in a new place,where he is confronted with an unfamiliar situation.He becomes irritable and avoids master these new situations.

Poor socialization of departure may also trigger unrest.The puppy who has never seen other animals will behave once it is excitation into contact with an animal.It will,likewise,difficult to control in the presence of several persons.Easily excite the children. Play sessions with uncontrolled enthusiasm (pulling, screaming …) also lead to a permanent behavioral excitation.

The predisposing causes:

This is often alone which is attributed this abnormal behavior.But it must actually be involved in their immediate causes.


Admittedly there are some breeds prone to agitation.We emphasize again the interests of the proper choice of a race. Obviously it is best to choose a breed very quiet when you have children (as King Charles) or if you are old.Poodles,Fox Terriers or Braques are often nervous,although they are not necessarily all excited.


The young dog is more excited than adults but this stirring must be limits.A puppy that eats everything and never ceases to stir may be classified as animals “abnormally” agitated.

Their lifestyle

The living conditions of the master who does not fit the needs of foster dog agitation.The dog may suffer from a lack of exercise.The personality of the teacher is also involved: those who are constantly trying to “run” tend to “manufacture” an agitated animal.

What if your dog is restless?

If you choose a breed that is predisposed to this type of behavior is to focus on learning of the recall orders for calm,that is to say: “Sit! “,” Down! “And” In the cart!”We must be careful to play sessions at home and outside.They should always be controlled by the master and be able to stop whenever he wants.You can ‘play-exercises “to force the animal to interrupt a session to the word” Stop!”This is to avoid any excitement.Once a dog gets excited nervous,we must temporarily lose interest in him and congratulate him when he calms down and goes to bed.

Calm down first: You need to have yourself an attitude posed,very peaceful.Avoid shouting,noise … You must give it the calm before each situation.You can also use the play sessions if they are highly structured.Throw something that the dog must retrieve.So he gets to control himself,ask him to deposit it at your feet.Never mind the dog and praise it when it has dropped the subject,he will lie and be calm again.The key is to limit the causes of excitement at first and do nothing when the dog is excited (no walks,no caresses …). Then multiply the situations “at risk” slowly and praise when the dog remains calm or when he is found.
