Some dogs have nervous, fearful, and anxious tendencies.  The reason for this can be caused by a few things.   If you bring a new dog into your home it’s important to be able to notice a scared dog and know how to help them cope.

How To Notice Signs of Anxiety

These traits can manifest in the form of shyness or even aggression. Anxious dogs can also become destructive. Signs of anxiety are trembling, whining, growling, panting, elimination, hypersalivation, excessive barking, and destruction.

If the dog shows signs of aggression towards strangers, children or other dogs, they should be closely monitored because they can harm someone else out of fear.

What Causes Canine Anxiety?

Some dogs have generalized anxiety which means that they’re anxious regardless of what the circumstances are. Poor socialization as a puppy or owner abuse is a common reason for why an adult dog would behave this way most of the time. Other dogs only get anxious during certain times like when traveling, boarding, during thunderstorms, trips to the vet, or grooming.

Have you ever heard of satin balls?

If you’re like me, the first time you heard the term satin balls you thought to yourself, “What the heck is a satin ball?”

What are satin balls?

Essentially, Satin Balls are magic meatballs.  They contain raw meat and other deliciousness that are intended to be fed to underweight dogs to quickly add pounds.

Satin balls also make great dog treats, which is how I use them, and my dogs love them!
