Do you know? Do you really know? How well do you know your pooch?
Can you tell if they have anxiety? Well... let's talk about that...
A new study from Guide Dogs in the UK says dogs - as we know - improve a person's well being, but, did you know that only 36 percent of pet owners can tell if their pooch has depression, anxiety or even worse??
Check this breakdown out:
1) 75 percent of dogs show signs of depression or anxiety.
2) 18 percent of pets have symptoms every week.
How do you know if your dog is feeling anxious or sad? The main things to look out for are disinterest in things they used to be interested in. Going off their food. You can look at their little faces, if they’re kind of lip-licking a lot, if they’re yawning a lot, that’s kind of a sign of immediate stress. Just like people, dogs get bored too, so creative play is crucial to good health.
