TECHNIQUES THAT PROMOTE RELAXATION

Time is of the essence with the holidays upon us, but there are many training techniques that I have taught my students over the years that help dogs use their own body to calm themselves. They are called biofeedback techniques, which include training the dog to use his own breath to calm himself as well as many other strategies that I have extensively covered in my book Control on Leash. I also wrote a blog on teaching impulse control through creating wave-like pattern exercises (click here for details, http://tinyurl.com/h4s6347). The goal, of course, is to train your dog to learn to be able to find his own Zen when he is under stress.
