Anxiety in Dogs

In this insightful blog post, we explore the world of canine anxiety, its common triggers, and practical strategies to help your beloved pup navigate through moments of stress. Let's dive into the nuances of understanding and supporting our canine companions through anxious times

Identify Triggers: Recognize specific situations or stimuli that trigger anxiety in your dog, whether it's thunderstorms, separation, or certain noises.

Create a Safe Haven: Establish a safe and comfortable space where your dog can retreat when anxious. This could be a cozy corner, a crate, or a quiet room with familiar items.

Positive Associations: Encourage positive associations with anxiety triggers by rewarding calm behavior. For instance, reward your dog with treats or praise during a thunderstorm to create a positive link with the experience.

Gradual Exposure: Gradually expose your dog to anxiety-inducing situations in a controlled manner. Start with brief exposures and slowly increase the duration as your dog becomes more accustomed and less anxious.

Routine and Enrichment: Establish a consistent daily routine to provide predictability. Engage your dog in regular physical exercise and mental enrichment activities to alleviate stress and anxiety.

Supplements: Investing in our Calming Chew is a great way to alleviate your dog's stress and anxiety. Our Calming Chews has fantastic natural ingredients that help with separation anxiety, reactivity and many more issues. 


Remember to approach each step with patience and observe your dog's reactions, adjusting your strategy as needed. If anxiety persists, consult with a professional for guidance.
