5 Steps to a Better Behaved OtterhoundWant to live a healthier lifestyle? Get a Otterhound. Studies show that pet ownership helps lower blood pressure, reduce stress and fights off the sensations of loneliness and depression.While there isn’t much that can beat the companionship and love of your Otterhound, there are a few unpleasant actions that just won’t do – from howling all day to peeing on the floor to chewing on your shoes while you’re not around.
If your Otterhound is exhibiting this behavior, it could be acting out due to anxiety, rising frustration or because of no home-training. With the right lifestyle corrections and disciplined training, you will be on our way to having a jovial, better-behaved pet. The following steps will help your furry friend become more disciplined:

Training The Otterhound:Spay or neuter

The Humane Society of the United States suggests that this common operation will help your Otterhound survive longer, be more healthy and have fewer behavior issues.

Training The Otterhound:Help your pet relax

Just like people, Otterhounds do get nervous, bothered and stressed. That’s why many doctors advise giving your Otterhound a relaxy therapeutic, like pet calming spray, to help reduce hyperactivity.
Formulated with natural ingredients, pet calming spray acts fast to alleviate anxiety, trepidation, uncertainty and aggression and lets anxious pets snooze through the night.

Tips To Training The Otterhound:Create an exercise routine

Pamper your Otterhound with regularly scheduled neighborhood walks twice a day. This will help the Otterhound reduce boredom, which might lead to destructive behavior.

Training Your Otterhound:Go to school

According to ASPCA, enrolling your Otterhound in an obedience training will educate you how to control your Otterhound’s behavior both safely and humanely.

How to Train Your Otterhound:Be patient

Although training your Otterhound to be more disciplined might require focus on your part, it’s worth it. Indeed, as man’s best friend, your Otterhound will welcome bonding with you in the process.
