Different “Signs and Symptoms” Can Tell You That Your Dog is Too Anxious
Your dog is afraid of the cage:
Indeed, many dogs are left alone in a cage without having been trained beforehand. The dog also lives in great distress, but the object of this is not the separation with the owners, but rather the fact of being locked up without being used to it.
The dog is bored:
It is possible that your dog destroys things in the house simply because it is an activity that occupies him and makes him pass the time.
There are gaps in education:
A dog can be messy because he just did not learn to remember his needs long enough to be able to do it for the duration of your absence. It can also be a puppy or a young dog that does not have the sphincter muscles yet developed enough to allow it to hold for several hours.
Noise in the environment that the dog is afraid of:
For example, if work is taking place on your street during the day when you are at work, it is possible that the noises they cause stress your pet and that this may leads to yapping.
The panting is the means used by the dogs to evacuate the heat of their body. If you notice that your dog is panting in situations where he should be calm or your dog is breathing fast or breathing hard, he is probably stressed and needs to relieve the tension he is feeling. Sometimes panting may be accompanied by squealing and crying. If your dog suffocates from time to time, consult your veterinarian to find out if it is a physical health problem and not a psychological problem.
The stressed dog usually feels uncomfortable with an unknown or stressful situation. If, for example, your dog suffers stress from other dogs, each of these encounters will push him to overreact. Your stressed dog will try to flee or react in a very negative way to this stimulation (whether it is a person, an environment, an object or a specific situation).
Hair loss usually occurs with chronic stress
When the dog begins to feel physically affected by the situation in which he finds himself. If you notice that your dog is starting to lose hair because of anxiety, you should consult a veterinarian as soon as possible. It can also lose its hair by too much licking (acral granuloma) or tear the hair directly with the teeth. Act quickly, your stressed dog sends you urgent signs.
