Help for Anxious Dogs with Vicki Austin

Anxiety cannot always be completely resolved - in people or dogs.  But there is much we can do to reduce and manage anxiety levels in our dogs to relieve their suffering and improve their quality of life.


What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a normal component of our dogs’ emotional repertoire. In fact, fear and anxiety are important for avoiding potentially life-threatening situations and events.  But when anxiety becomes maladaptive, the dog’s quality of life is impacted.  Given the emotional bond that people develop with their pet dogs and professional working dogs, it comes as no surprise that our own emotional wellbeing can be effected when our dogs are suffering.
