Here are 5 Tips to Help Anxious Fearful Dogs.
There are many ways to diminish stress in your anxious dog. For dogs with separation anxiety:
- Leave your dog with an article of clothing or blanket with your scent on it.
- Leave a treat-release toy for your dog to focus on in your absence. Place small treats around the house for her to discover, along with her favorite toys.
- Add a flower essence blend like Separation Anxiety from Spirit Essences to her drinking water. This works wonders for some dogs. And put on some soothing doggy music before you leave.
- Invest in an Adaptil collar or diffuser for your dog. These products release a pheromone that’s designed to have a calming affect on dogs.
Make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise, playtime, mental stimulation and TLC. The more full her life is when you’re around, the calmer she’ll be when you’re not.For more helpful dog articles like 5 Tips to Help Anxious Fearful Dogs then please subscribe to our weekly green Pets Newsletter.
