When anxiety strikes dogs it can be stressful for the dog and for the owner. One well known remedy is to get your dog a high quality calming dog bed.
To understand what makes a great calming dog bed, we must first know why dogs actually get anxiety in the first place. There is nothing more heart wrenching than seeing your lovely dog feeling stressed and anxious all the time.
Let’s take a look at the key causes of dog anxiety.
Unfortunately there are many abused and neglected dogs in Australia (and indeed the world). If you have have an adopted one, make sure you understand the history and possible traumas of your companion. Some dogs are definitely more anxious than most, but we're certain that with your adoring care and attention -- your beloved dogs do not even come close to this neglected category.
Second, a very common reason for anxiety in a dog is unfamiliarity. It can come from a feeling of abandonment, or the fear of being home alone, with loud noises coming from outside their safe space. It could also mean traveling to an unknown place, or being left around strangers and other pets they don’t know. Some of these things are almost impossible to avoid - especially for busy and hard working human “pawrents”.
Getting them a 2nd dog companion can help a lot too so they never feel too alone or isolated.
What can we do to help alleviate their anxiety? A couple of things can be done to help calm your dog whenever you are not around them, but a great quality calming dog bed tops the list.
What does a calming dog bed do?
It’s essentially your dog’s 'happy place', one that reminds them of the warm times you are around them and gives them that feeling of security and relaxation. (It’s a bit like us humans getting a massage after a stressful day at work)
This is why the choice of a familiar, calming dog bed is crucial -- not just for sleep, but for your dog’s health and overall well-being when you are not at home.
