You can get Rescue Remedy at any healthfood store. It's good for people and animals. It's indicated for shock and trauma, but good for any kind of stress. Nothing dramatic, just smooths things out energetically. I know some hard-core cynics who normally scoff at flower essences who use Rescue Remedy.

As far as the listen, sit and hold, you can do it while playing. The main thing is to straddle him and grab the scruff of the neck. It's a primal thing that dominant animals do to maintain their superiority. Listen! simply serves as the Pavlovian response cue (but don't overuse it, just once or twice loudly and firmly, even affectionately while playing).

Dogs need that pack mentality and even an alpha male (which your's sounds like) will willingly submit to a more dominant animal. Obeying gives their little doggie brains something to do. Allowing you to sit and hold without struggling is the goal here, but he may test you the first few times and try to get the upper hand. But that's all part of the game and he's actually expecting you to be firm - not mean, just firm. He'll love and respect you for it. It also helps them feel more secure (this all goes for dogs - cats could give a rip). It can all be incorporated in the spirit of love and fun and the guidance he really wants.
