DOG ANXIETY TREATMENT - CURE

Healthy Pitbull Puppies with no Anxiety

MANY DOGS SUFFER WITH ANXIETY UNNECESSARILY

Frankly I am surprised with the number of emails I get concerning dog anxiety. The causes of dog anxiety are many and unfortunately real solutions for dogs with anxiety are few. In this article I identify what to do, and what not to do, when providing treatment for dog anxiety.

In preparation for this article on dog anxiety, I read many pages on the subject. I was appalled at the number of pages written by people that obviously had no clue on how to cure a dog with anxiety. Most pages were written by people who I doubt ever even owned a dog. Their articles were generic in nature and lacked the experiences that would testify to someone who would have a clue as to how to cure a dog with anxiety.


CONFIDENT APPROACH TO RELIEVING YOUR DOG'S ANXIETY

My life revolves around the caring for dozens of dogs. Some of my dogs have had severe anxiety issues. And although I may not have seen everything, and may not have all the answers, I've dealt with dog anxiety enough, that I am pretty confident in my approach and information that I provide. As is always the case @ mrpitbull.com my advice is based on my experience. Your mileage may vary.


TREATING A DOG WITH ANXIETY - YOUR VET WILL NOT HAVE A CLUE

Read the pages on my site and you will find that I am a big proponent of seeking the opinion of a vet when your dog has a health issue. Yet tell your vet your dog has anxiety and his treatment may be to prescribe a pill. This is not the answer for a dog suffering with anxiety.

Medication is the step of last resort in treatment of dog anxiety.

Anxiety medications often have unwanted side effects and should be avoided if at all possible.

PACK TRAINING IS THE KEY

PACK TRAINING is generally the best course to relieve a dog with anxiety. Most vets are not dog trainers and therefore are not the best choice when seeking treatment for dog anxiety.

THERE ARE MANY TYPES OF ANXIETY

I've personally dealt with many types of dog anxiety. Separation anxiety is very common with puppies. I can't begin to tell you how many times I have had to help a puppy get over the anxiety that is created when they are moved away from their pack or siblings. Too, I note separation anxiety in dogs that I take from the kennel to my home as I rotate dogs.

I've had some dogs that are scared to death to be on a leash. They cower to the ground in fear as they are taken to unfamiliar surroundings.


UNLESS ANXIETY IS DEALT WITH A DOG IS A DANGER TO BITE SOMEONE

I've had other dogs that are scared of people. Now you wouldn't think a Pit would be afraid of people, but some are terrified. What is interesting is that this kind of anxiety can be manifested in two completely different ways. Dogs with anxiety toward people might hunker down and shake uncontrollably or they may hide behind a couch. Most, easily identify their dog's fear of people when the anxiety presents itself this way. But yet too, a dog that has fear of people, may exhibit anxiety by barking, growling and even aggression. In either case, unless the anxiety is dealt with, the dog is a danger to bite someone.


NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF ANXIETY THE SAME SIMPLE STEPS GENERALLY WORK

Some of my dogs are afraid of taking a bath. The anxiety that some dogs exhibit when placed in the water is almost comical. Bath anxiety with dogs is very common. Some dogs are afraid of loud noise or may exhibit anxiety when it thunders. Really the list could go on and on as to the causes of anxiety with dogs. Yet it is good to know that even though there are many causes of anxiety and many reason that a particular dog may be afraid of something, in many cases if not most, the same simple steps can be taken to cure dog anxiety.
