I’m a big fan of conditioning dogs to be calm in the house because that’s the way I like to live with dogs indoors. To me, outdoors is for exercise, playtime, and socialization. That being said, there will be times I will allow some play indoors… BUT! I only allow it because I know I stop it. At any given time, I know I can take that high energy down and get them to relax.

If you want your dog to behave indoors and be calm you must teach that. It doesn’t come natural for most dogs. This can be done by teaching a solid “place” or “down” command (there are how to videos on my website). If you are going to allow your dog to get excited and playful in the house, make sure you have a way to stop that if/when it gets out of hand or when you simply want them to stop and calm down. If you’re going to turn it on, make sure you have an off switch as well.
