Gracie on Anxiety Issues

GraceHere’s a subject that’s near and dear to my dog heart! When I first came to live with Barbara and Wayne, I was just one raw nerve! I was worried about everything! New things were terrifying, and memories from my past life was making me miserable; I just couldn’t let it go! I didn’t sleep well at night, picked fights with the other dogs at home, could barely leave the house without a human tied to me. It was awful!

Most folks don’t realize how stressful it can be for a dog living in the human world, where we don’t know what the heck is going on half the time; it would make any dog a worry-wart. Sometimes we get afraid of things that make sense to people, but many times folks just don’t get it, so that’s why it’s a great idea to go get some help! People like Barbara understand about what dog anxiety issues are (I’ve made sure to fill her in on all the pertinent details!), but best of all, she knows what to do to help make things a whole lot better!  With the right kind of help, you can make life so much nicer for dogs with:

  • separation distress/anxiety
  • thunderstorm issues
  • fireworks fears
  • stranger paranoia
  • social anxiety (fear of the group experience!)
  • noise phobia
  • neophobia (fear of new stuff)
  •  and lots of others…
