Signs of Stress in Dogs -
These are some things to look out for, as I know you want your dogs to be as happy and relaxed as possible..
*Dogs excessively licking their mouth or nose.
*Panting for no apparent reason.
*Yawning - usually couple with avoidance or pinned ears.
*Avoidance - including of eye contact, an object, animal /person.
*Destructive behaviour - can include against themselves.
*Illness - just like if we come under a lot of stress, we are more likely to get sick, due to a more suppressed immune system.
*Excessive barking - can be a sign of anxiety
*Excessive hair shedding,
