If your pet is hyperactive…you are not alone but you may be exhausted!

We love them unconditionally but our busy pets can also exhaust us!  What’s more, when you have spunky pets, you too can feel a bit estranged from the rest of the pet owner world.

After working a long, hard day many pet owners come home to a ransacked house with potpourri spewn across the floor, clothing scattered everywhere, glasses tipped over or broken, papers ripped to shreds, and scratches, claw marks and teeth prints in the furniture.

You are not alone.

There are many pet owners who are living with hyperactive pets or pets that have random frisky moments.  Frisky behavior is quite normal for our pets and often happens when they are bored.  They can also get a bit jittery when they’re scared or nervous…just like us.  So here are some tips that may help to calm your pet:

1. Refrain from scolding and chasing your pet if you’ve caught him after the fact.  Many pets may not remember far back enough to remember what they have done.  Catching them in the act is the best time to let them know that their behavior is unacceptable.

2. Reward your pet with a treat anytime he shows good behavior.

3. Spend time with your pet each day – perhaps for exercise or for play.

4. A healthy pet can learn good behaviors.  Be sure to keep your pet on a healthy diet so that his bones, muscles and brain can continue to develop.

5. Give him some toys. This way he has a few things to keep him busy while you’re gone.

6. Help your pet to relax. A great way to do this is by massaging him and playing relaxing, soothing music.  This can help both you and your pet – when you come home to a mess, or when the both of you just need to unwind.
