Five common dog anxiety issues
So, your dog is experiencing anxiety. What causes anxiety in dogs? Is it separation anxious? There are many causes of anxiety in dogs. This blog post will help to identify the signs. This blog post will also provide great tips for treating anxiety in dogs. Here is some more separation anxiety in dogs info.

Dogs are fearful due to these reasons
There are many reasons that dogs can become anxious, but these are five of the most commonly reported.
Being Left Alone
The dogs are pack animals. They love being part of the family and become anxious if they're separated from their family members or their owners. To soothe themselves, separation anxiety can result in destructive behavior in dogs.
A few symptoms of separation anxiety are:
Peeing and pooping around the house during separation anxiety
Barking, howling, or howling continuously (sometimes in the night, when you are left alone).
Escape from your home by jumping over fences, digging under walls, chewing on doors, etc.
Chewing things like shoes, furniture, clothing. This is a method for dogs to alleviate anxiety.

Create a safe haven for your dogs while you're away to help them with separation anxiety. A comfortable, cozy space with bedding will help your dog feel safer while they are alone.
A toy stuffed with food is another option. But, it should not be something that could cause chokes or harm to your pet's throat.


Loud Noise
Dogs can be extremely sensitive and sensitive to loud noises particularly if they've not been exposed to loud noises before.
Dogs may become anxious when they hear loud, repetitive noises like:
- Fireworks
- Thunderstorms
- Sirens
Note: Dogs can also be anxious when they hear loud noises, such as the sound of squeaky toys or dog collars.
Training is a great way to lessen or stop anxiety in dogs that are stimulated by loud sounds.

Your dog can overcome anxiety over noise by making them exposed to loud sounds in an enjoyable way. You can, for example make recordings of storms or fireworks and combine these sounds with treats (or their favourite toy).
Wraps for anxiety are another option. These work just like baby swaddles for dogs when your dog is unhappy. Gentle pressure could help to calm your dog's anxiousness.

Changes in the Home Environment
Dogs are awestruck by routine and routine. Dogs love routine and know what they can expect. They also like to please their owners/pack members.
The most common causes of anxiety for your dog could include:
Moving into a new house or bringing your possessions with your when you move to another home
Affording a family member to leave the house (e.g. death, divorce)
- Additions to the family like a child or a pet.
Changes to your work schedule (i.e. that you are working from home now instead of. prior to that, you worked outside of the home)
Changes in routines can stress dogs. If anxiety arises because of a change in environment working with your dog to reduce anxiety can involve both training and creating new routines for your home.

Anxiety wraps are a great alternative for dogs who suffer from anxiety as a result of the loss of a loved pet or friend.
Family members can be included in your training activities to teach your dog to behave around them when you're not present. When you combine positive things like praise or treats with new family members and make sure that your dog is happy.

Dogs are naturally wary of strangers and can be anxious if they see someone new.
Anxiety symptoms in this situation might include:
Don't growl or bark at strangers while out on walks.
When guests arrive to eat or visit, make sure you place them behind furniture or under the beds.
- To escape from strangers they don't know, they may hit windows and doors.
Dogs that are anxious about meeting strangers should be trained on how to behave when they are around them.
With time and practice It will help your dog be more relaxed when meeting new people or welcoming guests in your home, which can decrease their anxiety.

The process of introducing your pet to people gradually can assist them in becoming more comfortable with strangers. For instance you can request the person for treats and then provide your dog with time to eat their food while they are there. Gradually, let the person in the chair get closer to your dog until they can be able to approach one another.

Dogs may be anxious when they ride in vehicles with their owners in particular if they've not gone on similar rides before or had a traumatizing experience.
Car rides can cause anxiety in dogs, and these signs could include:
Whining and barking in the car
There is a possibility that you may feel shaken or trembling inside your vehicle
- To hide behind/underside of the seats when trying to get out from the car

If you can, a slow exposure, to cars can be helpful in helping your dog feel more at ease with them.
Do not encourage fear or anxiety however, you should reward calm behavior whenever you see your dog around vehicles.
This will allow them to be more comfortable with the vehicle, and eventually enjoy driving it without anxiety.


You can see anxiety in dogs can often be caused by a variety of things. Through consistent training and consistency, your dog will feel more at ease around these triggers.
If anxiety is present, begin by desensitizing the trigger slowly (i.e. cars rides). Then introduce new surroundings and people to their lives.
If you can work on anxiety with your dog, you'll start to see them feel more relaxed and less anxious!
