One struggle I often hear about from pet parents is, “My dog has bad anxiety.” Firstly, I’m terribly sorry. I know what you’re going through and I understand how difficult it can be. Although I’m not a veterinarian, there are some ideas that I have for helping your dog with their anxiety. I’ve learned first hand about the challenges you face, as Khloee’s anxiety has been apparent since she was just a wee gal. While this post offers suggestions, please note that I absolutely recommend consulting a veterinarian or licensed canine behaviorist if you think your dog’s anxiety is out of your control.
