Is Anxiety In Dogs Real?

If your furry friends are joining the party or hanging out at home, it’s important to keep them comfortable, relaxed, and happy. For the most laid-back dogs, experiencing social events may be overwhelming, even if they were once considered normal.
Signs of Anxiety In Dogs
Dog stress can surface in many ways, and most dogs will experience some form of stress in their lives. Most recently, anxiety in dogs spiked when owners were heading back to the office after spending close to a year working from home.
There are several signs your pet may be stressed. For example, they may show an inability to settle down and relax. Other behaviors may include excessive scratching, chewing, and barking. It is not uncommon for anxious pups to display these behaviors even if they refrain under normal circumstances.
