Your Pooch & Anxiety


that their fur babies could have anxiety. Communicating feelings is harder for our pets so we need to be careful and try to be on the lookout for possible symptoms.


Here are some common signs of anxiety in dogs to help you out:

- Barking or howling when the parent isn't home

- Panting and pacing (even when it's not hot)

- Shivering

- Running away and/or cowering in the corner of a house

- Digging

- Escaping the yard

- Destroying furniture

- Self-harm, including excessive licking or chewing

- Not eating

- Urinating more frequently

- A general inability to settle


There are several solutions to this issue. They may include behavioral training, medication, supplements, cuddling and showing affection, and changes to their environment to make them more comfortable.

Does your pooch exhibit any of these signs? What do you usually do to calm them down?
