Signs of Anxiety in Dogs

Separation Anxiety & Fear Anxiety

Dogs can suffer with anxiety for many different reasons including separation anxiety, fear anxiety, social and pain anxiety which is associated with fear based anxiety. This can be challenging for not only dogs but their owners too.

Some Signs of anxiety in dogs include the following:

  • Panting
  • Pacing
  • Trembling
  • Excessive Licking
  • Barking/Howling
  • Destructiveness

Separation Anxiety

This form of dog anxiety is very common. Some dogs do not enjoy being alone and prefer the company and comfort of people. Dogs often associate their owners with food, play, cuddles, walks and everything good in life. If your dog has not been left alone before or has not learnt to experience their own company they can get separation anxiety.

Fear Anxiety

Fear anxiety in dogs can be seen in many forms including illness/pain anxiety, social anxiety, noise anxiety and more.

Social anxiety can be seen if a dog is simply not used to new people/dogs or new, busy environments.

Noise anxiety is seen with loud noises such as fireworks. Remember our dog’s hearing is much better than ours and this can be very overwhelming for them.

Other forms of anxiety can be seen when travelling, visiting the vets or simply being taken out of their comfort zone.
