Dog Myth 6

Myth No. 6: An excited dog is happy to see you.

“It’s very easy to come home to a dog that is jumping, running around, or spinning in circles, and interpret that as the dog being glad you’re home. But that’s not what’s really happening,” says Cesar Millan, dog behaviorist and star of the TV series Dog Whisperer.

It’s a sign that your dog has more energy than he can handle in that moment.

Millan’s advice: Ignore him when he’s overexcited, then reward him with attention when he calms down.
