Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As a dog owner, have you noticed your dog having anxiety behavioral symptoms? Have you wondered if there is anything you can do about it? Well, yes there is something you can do. This article will cover what anxiety symptoms are and what you can do about them.

What are Anxiety Symptoms?

You may have noticed your dog barking, jumping or shaking in reaction to a thunderstorm, shooting of fireworks, other loud noises, hearing your car leave the garage when you go to work, or being ushered into the car when you want to take him along with you. Or, you may have noticed your dog seeking a safe area like a closet, under the bed or some other safe place in the house. Just like humans when we were little and sought the comfort and shelter of our mother or father during a storm or anxious moment. Your pet is experiencing the same feelings and wants protection. Because you are emotionally tied to your pet, your natural reaction is to want to help and comfort your pet.

What Can I Do?

At first glance, you may be thinking there is really nothing that can be done for your pet when they experience this anxiety symptom; however, there is a promising solution to help your pet. You may have heard about thunder coats or thundershirts. If not, these items are something you can put on your pet during a storm or whenever he should experience an anxiety situation as described above. How can a thunder shirt or blanket help? Well, these shirts or coats apply some pressure on their body which releases the stress they are experiencing. It helps them to be calm when these situations occur. They do not work on all dogs; however, they are probably worth a try to see if your pet is helped by them. These items are not expensive. You can also check with your veterinarian to see if he/she believes your breed of dog will respond to this item. The age factor of a dog does not impact the effectiveness of this solution.

Conclusion

Dog anxiety symptoms should be a concern to all pet owners. Dealing with these anxieties depends on how your dog responds to corrective treatment. Helping your pet is very important not only for you and your household, but also for his health.
