Being able to calm an exited dog is important and it is the first thing you need to do before you can get it to do other things. A dog who is not calm will not listen to you so you need to calm it down before you can give it other commands.
The “Calm Freeze” method is used by Doggy Dan and it is a very effective way to get your dog calm. The idea of it is simply to transferring your own “calm energy” to your dog. If your dog feel that you are calm it will calm down as well. Dogs are like this, they pick up your mood. If you get angry and upset they will as well, if you are sad, they will feel it and react to it.
So for this method to work you need to be calm as well.
So how does it work, how do you do it? Well you simply put your hand underneath your dog’s collar and calmly hold him/her like that. You do not need to talk, simply remain calm and the dog will soon calm down. Then you can slowly move away and your dog will remain in that state. You will see exactly how it is done by watching the video below with Doggy Dan.
It can not get more simple than that, can it? You hardly do anything at all, simply transferring your state of mind to your dog. This method is useful in a number of situations, for example if your dog is barking or if he is stressed by something like an object or another dog.
