When our favorite fur babies suffer, we do too--and not just because Fido “leaked” on the rug! Dog anxiety symptoms are a plea for help. As human caregivers, we seek out the best solutions. For many pet owners, we prefer a natural remedy, if at all possible.

Sometimes, anxiety can be a symptom of another health problem, such as an infection. So, if you observe any of the signs of anxiety listed above, it’s good to check in with a trusted veterinarian to rule out any underlying medical condition.

It’s important to note that in dealing with an anxious dog, punishment-based training doesn’t work, and may make matters worse. In general, reward-based training produces better results than punishment-based training. However, for a dog prone to anxiety, punishment-based training may exacerbate the situation, leading to increased incidents of “acting out.”
If training is part of your plan for working with your anxious dog, stick to reward-based, confidence-boosting training.
While dogs and humans with anxiety might both benefit from CBD products, it’s important to only give your dog a CBD product created for dogs. Human CBD products may have different dosages, or even ingredients (like xylitol, a common sweetener), which may be dangerous for dogs.
