Hi Abhilash,

Well you have got a question here and all that i wish to say is have you got the time too. Yes its gona be a work but trust me the reward of bonding is gona be great.

All dogs are created equal, but certain dogs are created more hyper than others.Here are some important tips which I learned on how to calm a hyper dog or a hyper puppy.

One of the most important things to remember if we have a hyper dog, is that we should always try to remain calm.

If I lose my temper, get frustrated, or become angry, my dog will pick up on that energy and become even more hyper. When my dog is over-excited, I do my best to remain calm, and project calm energy to him.
For example i hve a 5 months old LAB puppy at this time. So while in walks if you feel he is beeing too jumpy ask him to sit and do not move until he is calm again so he will quickly learn tat being pushy dose not take him anyware in the walk.

so i come to home after work and he is all over me ohh man i if i end up thinking thats the moment i needed as a reward for having a puppy then i am completely wrong. He is excited and i am allowing him to be so with me so it triggers him that he can be all over any body who walks in to that door. Is that wat u want all those people who comes to your home to say tie your dog first he is too jumpy .

I am sure no is the answer so the solution is dont just give affection yet while he is jumpy let him relax stop jumping all over you then u can pet him.

The next big rule for a indoor dog is to keep his mind occupied .A great way to exercise our dog mentally, is through the use of interactive food toys. Some good ones include the food Cube, of course Kongs.

Frozen Kongs are great for when I have to leave my dog home alone. I just put some wet food into a classic Kong and freeze it. My dog has fun licking and chewing at it, and it helps to keep his mind occupied.

I also try to figure out new ways to make my dog work for his food. For example, sometimes, I will put his food on some paper, and then bunch up the paper into a ball. Then, I push the paper ball into a toy. My dog usually has a fun time figuring out this food puzzle!
