Understanding Anxiety in Your Dog

Signs of Anxiety in Dogs

Separation anxiety is triggered when dogs become upset because of separation from their guardians, the people they’re attached to. Escape attempts by dogs with separation anxiety are often extreme and can result in self-injury and household destruction, especially around exit points like windows and doors.


What Causes Anxiety?

  • Sickness or pain
  • Aging or disease
  • Past experiences
  • Lack of socialization
  • Having been abandoned or neglected


Helping Your Dog with Anxiety

  • Practice separation
  • Occupy your dog
  • Stay calm
  • Prioritize exercise
  • Consider doggy daycare
  • Ask about medications


If your dog exhibits ongoing signs of stress, make an appointment with your veterinarian. Once your dog has a clean bill of health, your veterinarian may refer you to a trainer or veterinary behaviorist to address both the fear and the behaviors it causes.
