Anxiety in dog is the result of fear, separation or aging.

According to the American Kennel Club, dog anxiety can manifest in a dog’s behavior in many ways, including:

  • Aggression
  • Panting
  • Drooling
  • Defecating in the home
  • Depression
  • Destructive behavior 
  • Pacing  

Just like their human counterparts, there are treatments that can ease a dog’s stress when experiencing anxiety. Some methods are: 

  • Training and conditioning dogs to respond to uncomfortable stimuli with a healthy response
  • Anxiety medication
  • Using CBD oil 

To prevent anxiety, owners can: 

  • Learn a dog’s body language to identify when they feel uncomfortable
  • Regularly socialize them in new experiences 
  • Give them obedience training
  • Make sure they have a decent amount of exercise and proper nutrition
  • Help the dog avoid stress where possible
