Dogs bring many upsides to the lives of their owners. They provide companionship and unconditional love. Their wagging tails and wet noses fill our hearts with real joy and put smiles on our faces. However, regardless of their happiness and excitement to be next to their human being, just like humans, they are also predisposed to experience high levels of stress and anxiety. The biggest fear and nightmare of any dog owner is to see their four-legged loyal friend suffering in any way. Is your dog feeling anxious, stressed or worried? It is important to notice the signs of stress in their early stages and provide your dog with the right treatment that will help them feel at ease.

Causes of dog anxiety and stress

Understanding your dog’s emotional stress is essential to alleviate unwanted symptoms and help your dog feel relaxed and happy again. There are many causes which trigger changes in the behavior of a dog. Separation anxiety in dogs is common but other causes range from moving to a new home, bringing a new member in the family such as a baby or a new pet. Vet visits often make dogs feel anxious, especially if they perceive it as a negative experience based on the previous visits there. Also, loud noises such as fireworks or children can represent an external threat which results in excessive fear felt by your loyal companion.

How to spot stress and anxiety in dogs

Similar to their human counterparts, stress in dogs can occur when they are anxious and worried when they are placed in a stressing environment. They start feeling several emotions which are indicated through their body language. To recognize that your dog might deal with high levels of stress, you need to consider their overall behavior, particularly the gestures which seem out of the character for your dog. Gestures such as shaking, anorexia, attempts to escape, yawning, increased sleeping or restlessness, and aggression towards other animals or people may are all signs that your dog uses to express fear and anxiety.

How to treat and prevent stress

When your dog is exhibiting unusual behavior, it is highly recommended to start with a visit to your vet. This way you will ensure that your dog is not suffering from any medical issues that are contributing to the changes in your dog’s behavior. To properly help your dog, you need to indicate what makes them feel anxious or stressed. For example, if they feel stressed at home, you should create a safe space that makes them feel comfortable. It is highly recommended to use commonly used products such as an Adaptil diffuser plug in, which has been proven to have a positive effect by releasing natural pheromones to help calm dogs. Also available is an Adaptil travel spray and Adaptil collars and Adaptil calming tablets. Other helpful products include Yucalm calming tablets, Pet Remedy dog calming plugin and Thundershirt anxiety wraps which all help to reduce dog anxiety and stress. Along with dog calming treatments, exercising is a good way to help your loyal friend relieve stress. A vigorous walk or play session with their favorite toy may distract them from feeling stress and help them get a good resting sleep.

How dogs show when they are relaxed

Dogs that are relaxed and comfortable with everything in their environment tend to show the feeling of relaxation in their behavior and posture. Usually, the relaxed feeling can be spotted on their face. The eyes will be soft and rounded, the ears semi-erect and forward, and their mouth will be relaxed looking like your dog is smiling
