Subtle signs that your dog is feeling anxious

Dogs are naturally very stoic creatures, however they do have some classic signs of stress and not all of them are obvious! How many times in our sessions with clients do we hear “oh wow! I had no idea that was a sign of stress! I just figured he was [insert any construct here]!”  

A fantastic website to learn all about dog body language is http://www.ispeakdog.org/ created by our friend, colleague, and former client, Tracy Krulik. In the next assignment, we’re going to learn about the common signs of stress and anxiety in dogs and you will be given an opportunity to observe your dog in order to assess their particular signs so that during your training, you will be able to keep them under threshold and at their best for optimal learning!
