The Premier Blog On Canine-Human Interaction/Is Your Dog Suffering in Silence? How to Identify and Manage Stress in Your Dog.

One important thing to remember when caring for a dog is that they may be suffering in silence. Stress and anxiety can lead to a wide range of physical and mental health issues, so it's important to keep an eye out for signs of your pup feeling overwhelmed. To appropriately identify and manage stress in your pet, it is first essential to understand how dogs respond to fearful situations. Most commonly, they will flee, freeze, or fight the danger.

However, these behaviors can be difficult to address or even recognize because on the surface dogs can act very happy and obedient. What looks like happiness from our perspective could actually be them attempting to mask their fear through overreaction or freezing completely in an attempt to escape the situation. To help your pet feel safe and secure in your home, it is important to observe their behavior and respond accordingly.

​Additionally, if your pup remains in a state of chronic stress due to frequent exposure to dangerous scenarios, they could suffer from an imbalance of calcium and magnesium levels which can then affect their thyroid gland's functioning over time. This is why it's critical for pet owners to take proactive steps towards reducing their dog's stress level before any long-term damage occurs.

Hi, I Am Sasha Riess

Founder Of Pure Love & Harmony

My journey with dogs began at a very young age, seeking comfort and solace from them when I didn't fit in with my peers and, like many of you, may have felt rejected by my family. I channeled those negative emotions into learning about dogs and began showing and grooming professionally at the age of 16.

With countless championship titles under my belt, I retired from the show world as a judge and started teaching students worldwide the art of dog care. Today, my focus is on providing dog parents like you with all the necessary information on how to forge a beautiful, loving bond based on trust and understanding with your companions.
