The pressure of everyday life means that we now tend to be more anxious and stressed, which our dogs can pick up on very easily. There are also more dogs being re-homed in the UK and from abroad of which a large percentage have anxiety and behavioural issues. Some dogs are just more nervous by nature.
Common triggers can be loud noises (fireworks or even heavy traffic) or being separated from their owners. Due to heightened anxiety some dogs can show signs of aggression towards other people or dogs or be destructive in the home. Working dogs (those who compete in agility, flyball or gaming sports) can also feel the pressure and may get anxious before a competition or not travel well in the lead up to an event.
