Some dogs are just anxious, and there are a lot of reasons for it. Some are naturally anxious, others have some type of separation anxiety and still, others may have had unfortunate upbringings before we adopted them where they were mistreated and/or neglected.
KONG Box has been working with dog owners for nearly 50 years, and during that time we’ve heard a lot of stories about dogs that are extremely high-energy. Our products are specifically designed to provide fun for pooches, which usually means that they’re expending that energy and finding themselves physically spent at the end of the day.
Dog owners know what it’s like to leave the house, only to come home and see that half of the living room has been destroyed. After the initial burst of anger and shock, we go looking for the culprit, only to find our furry friend in a corner somewhere, cowering in fear because he or she knows that trouble is looming.
Even the happiest dogs can experience anxiety but playtime can be an effective dog anxiety treatment. Let’s take a look at why your dog may be anxious and what you can do about it.
