Must-Haves for High-Energy Dogs
Dog Ball
As mentioned above, boisterous dogs need to work off that extra energy and a simple ball is a great tool. Throw it in the yard, in the house, or out on walks to get your dog running.

Long Line Leash
High energy dogs should ideally get plenty of off-leash walks so they have an opportunity to run around, but we know that isn't always possible. Long line leashes are ideal to give your dog some chance to roam on walks where it's safe to use a long leash but not secure enough for off-leash adventures.

No-Pull Dog Harness
High energy dogs are often more likely to pull on the leash, but a no-pull dog harness can help curb this behavior. Choose a gentle option with a front clip rather than one that tightens or otherwise causes the wearer discomfort upon pulling.

Portable Dog Bowls
Perhaps the best piece of advice we can give to people with high energy dogs is to exercise them as much as possible. We'd recommend regular long hikes and when you're out on a walk for a couple of hours or more, you'll definitely need to bring along a portable dog bowl.

Calming Treats
Constant high energy levels can be a sign of a stressed dog. You can help them chill out a little with calming treats, which contain relaxing ingredients like hemp seed, chamomile, and ginger root. Give them a treat when they're being a little wily or before an anxiety-inducing event, like a long car ride.
