Hi this if Ryan Gwilliam with expert village and I am going to teach you how to handle it when your dog is very excited. Most people think that when your dog is excited that he's happy but it's actually anxiousness. For example most the common scenarios of excited dogs is when you first get home, jumping around wagging the tail very excited. When new people come over when they see other dogs when you grab the toy stuff like that, that's excitement out of them but for a dog that's not a good thing. It's okay for the wagging the tail to be happy, yes, but as soon as it's a full body wag as soon as the dog's jumping or barking or anything like that, that's him being very anxious. Like when you first get home, my dogs a lot of times are very anxious and they just want me to pet them so bad but if I pet them, that just is gonna make them more anxious and it's going make them tend to be more anxious everyday. So what you really need to do is ignore them when they're in that state of mind; you ignore them. If it gets too out of hand, they're jumping on you, you have to correct them you have to address it, make them sit down, make them calm down. But if at all possible, just ignore your dogs and until they come out of that anxious state of mind we don't, we don't give them any kind of affection. But once they get there then it's perfectly fine to pet your dog give him that full body massage or whatever you wanna do.
