Some of these include general distractions, medications or supplements, pheromones and getting your dog comfortable over time with the trigger that causes their anxiety.

WHAT CAUSES DOG ANXIETY?

Dog anxiety or stress can have many causes depending on your particular situation or their environment although the main causes of anxiety in dogs or puppies is fear, separation or aging.

The main causes for fear-based anxiety in dogs are most commonly attributed to your dog’s environment and can include things like loud noises, unfamiliar people, animals or other objects, new or unfamiliar environments, new or unfamiliar experiences such as trips to the vet, a long drive to a vacation spot, car trips, unfamiliar surfaces like grass, wood, carpet etc. While some dogs may only experience temporary reactions that disappear over time as your dog becomes more comfortable, some dogs may be affected more seriously and for extended periods of time.

Separation anxiety in dogs can be quite common and if not carefully looked after can have negative effects on both your dogs and the environment your dog is left in such as your house. It is caused when your dog or puppy is unable to find comfort being left alone from people they are familiar and comfortable with such as your family. This most commonly occurs when all members of a family aren’t home during a working week, when your pet is left alone during a family vacation or left in an unfamiliar environment. This type of anxiety often results in destructive behaviours which may include urinating or defecating in said environment, destroying furnishings or furniture, barking, yelping or other signs of distress.

Anxiety that is age related in dogs is associated with dementia like syndromes such as Canine Cognitive Dysfunction (CCD), where your dog will experience a decline in memory, perception, awareness and learning capabilities which may lead to confusion and anxiety.

SIGNS OF DOG ANXIETY

While it is hard to understand or know exactly how your dog is feeling there are some common signs to look out for that may indicate your dog is experiencing some form of anxiety or stress:

  • Excessive barking
  • Depression
  • Destructive behaviour
  • Drooling
  • Forms of aggression
  • Urinating or defecating inside the house
  • Restlessness

The above symptoms may indicate occasional anxiety brought about by temporary events such as being left alone for a few hours, although as these anxiety-causing events become more frequent the effects on your dog may become more severe.

Urination or defecation can commonly be tied to separation anxiety as your dog gets itself so stressed to the point where they urinate or poop inside the household even when they are toilet trained.

The destruction of household items such as furniture, dog toys or other furnishings is often associated with separation anxiety since your dog works themselves up into a heightened state which not only poses a risk to your household but a serious risk to your dog in the case that they break something that harms them like glass.

HOW TO TREAT DOG ANXIETY

It is recommended to first speak to your veterinarian or a qualified animal training specialist to first identify the trigger of your dog’s anxiety or stress so that it can be determined if the trigger is situation based or if it is becoming a persistent issue for your dog.

Some methods that may be recommended by a qualified animal trainer may include counterconditioning which acts to change how your dog responds to the stimuli that is causing the anxiety by replacing the anxious reaction with a more desirable behaviour. The other physical training method that may be recommended is desensitization where the source of the stress or anxiety is introduced in small quantities to decrease the intensity of the trigger to your dog and rewarding their positive response to this over time.

On the other hand, anxiety medications work by boosting or decreasing the levels of certain mood related neurotransmitters in your dog to result in an overall happier and less anxious feeling for your dog.

Products such as stress relief drops for your dog work to create a calming effect for your dog during stressful times to help your dog overcome emotional or behavioural responses that may have otherwise been triggered in response to the anxious situation.

Direct To Pet also stocks a range of stress relieving dog collars that help to provide convenient anxiety relief to your dog which can be helpful when your dog is in new environments, around new people or animals, during travel, loud noises or when left home alone.

It is recommended to consult with your local vet to decide if these products are required for your pet and which will work best for your particular situation.
