When should I use calming products for my dog?
One of the main sources of stress for dogs is feeling abandoned by their family. Cats are more independent than dogs and are considered to be loners. Cats like spending time away from people and do not get lonely, whereas a dog would.
This means that situations where the companion dog is left home alone are particularly stressful, especially since the dog has only a rough idea of the time that passes. Five minutes can seem like an eternity. This absence creates separation-axiety.
Anything that affects the family is a potential source of stress. Dogs feel the irritation of their owners and the tensions that may exist between family members and may suffer from it.
Dogs can also be affected if they feel left out of the group, for example when a newborn or a new puppy comes home for the first time, it is very important for the dogs to feel bond and feel included and loved whom they in the long run, the dog will most likely watch over the newborn or puppy as their bodyguard.
If you are adopting a new puppy or dog, calming products can help when they come home for the first times and get settled into their new environment. Leaving the kennel and arriving in a new house can very scary the puppy or dog.
For dogs that are hypersensitive to noise, thunderstorms, fireworks, or other noisy events are a source of significant stress.The same is true for dogs that are particularly fearful of unfamiliar people or objects.
Their anxiety can also be linked to a specific disturbing situations like grooming, car trips, crate training, vet visits, boarding, and traveling.
Dogs express their stress in many different ways :
- Through their voice: Dogs bark or howl for hours. This can cause huge problems in the neighborhood, making the dog an undeniable source of nuisance.
- By the teeth: Dogs destroy everything that passes under the tooth: furniture, doors, trinkets, shoes…
- Cleanliness: Dogs leave stools and urine puddles throughout the house, leaving uncomfortable stains and odors.
- Knock: Dogs develop licking or biting behaviors, even self-mutilation. This is comparable to the humans who bite their nails.
More importantly, the more stressed out the dog is may cause it to stay still, or contrary swing back and forth
