Do you see many of these stressors exhibited by your dog?
“Sadly, maladaptive stress responses are a growing problem for companion dogs. These fear-based conditions often take the form of separation anxiety, storm and/or noise phobia, or aggression.
A chronic, prolonged fear response can cause both physical and emotional disease in your pet that can potentially shorten his life and negatively impact quality of life. Chronic stress depresses the immune system, alters blood flow to vital organs, and triggers the development of compulsive behaviors.”
