Yes. RELAXING is part of our training. Rufus here has a huge fear of cars. So we are learning to"chil-lax" next to the busy road. Training your dog doesn't have to all be go go go. Actually, getting your dog to relax more is better than physical activity. Your dog should be getting somewhere around 30min-2hours of physical activity a day depending on the energy level of your dog. The rest of your day, you should be practicing calming exercises. Working your dogs brain is just as important as physically working your dog. Doing both will ensure your dog to always be calm.
