A big piece of the puzzle to having a well-behaved dog is giving them the right amount of daily exercise. That will be dependent on their age, breed, and health. While training them to be calm is one aspect, being able to give your dog the exercise they need on a daily basis is very important. This can be done a number of different ways, from structured walks, to playing fetch, to going on hikes, etc. It might sound obvious that this is required but often overlooked. If you expect your dog to do the things you want, you need to set aside time specifically to meet their needs as well.
