WAYS DOGS TELL YOU THEY ARE STRESSED

WAYS DOGS TELL YOU THEY ARE STRESSED

Stress is the most common word. One out of every second person suffers from this problem. Do you know that dogs also suffer from this problem? Even if you know your best friend better than anyone else, some anxious behaviors are subtle enough to slip under the radar. These are the ways through which you can figure out whether your dog is stressed.

Tail Between The Legs

Tails really tell a story. A tucked tail is a no-brainer for a stressed or nervous pup, but any tail that isn’t loose and swishy when it wags is something to look out for. A stiff tail pointing straight up could indicate a warning, social challenge, or sign of aggression.

Panting Or Shaking

Dogs usually pant when they are hot and shiver when they are cold but if they are showing these two symptoms in some other circumstance then they in some sort of discomfort.

Licking Lips and Drooling

Lip licking is a sign of discomfort or nervousness in dogs. If you are finding the puddles of saliva on the floor most of the times then it can be a matter of concern.

Hiding Or Trying To Be Alone

Dogs are best at cuddling and when they try to hide under the bed, empty rooms and run away from you then try to look after their problem.

Yawning

If the dog repeatedly yawns, they are trying to tell that they are uncomfortable. You might have noticed that this happens mostly when you take them to the vet. This is the way of your pup to manage nervousness.
