Dogs are good for our health! Each time I hug my dogs I feel more hopeful, happier, and healthier!
I’ll never forget coming home after an appendectomy, having some complications, and spiraling into depression due to the ongoing pain. My doctors were amazing, and prescribed what I needed to heal physically. But emotionally, it was another story.
Dog anxiety, like the human anxiety, can be a debilitating and often painful experience.
If you’ve ever felt worried, uneasy, or nervous about an upcoming event or something with an uncertain outcome, or had a panic attack, you know exactly what I’m talking about! Sadly, many dogs suffer in silence because the owners are simply unaware of the signs. Having experienced a season of anxiety myself, I can’t imagine leaving a dog in an anxious state without offering help. Thankfully, there are things we can do to help our furry friends in their times of need.
The purpose of this article is to help you to recognize the signs of dog anxiety and learn how to offer relief.
