Is stress the cause of problem behaviors in dogs? If your dog destroys the house the minute you leave, he may be stressed-out. If he has
an unpleasant body odor, excessive dandruff or heavy shedding, he may be stressed-out. If he is hyperactive, suddenly aggressive, hides under the bed or displays more than two dozen other symptoms, he may be stressed out and need your help.
The study of stress in human medicine and psychology has taught us that stress can lead to the development of health problems, affect our relationships with others, and can make us unhappy, irritable, and even aggressive. Dogs are no different.
Written for both the canine professional as well as concerned dog owners, the information in Stress in Dogs can improve the lives of dogs as well as humans with a sound approach to resolving stress-related problems.
