Dog Behaviour. The Christmas Rush! Stress in Dogs.

Tis’ the Season! This can be quite a stressful time of year for your beloved dogs as well as yourselves.
There can be extra people in your home, with guests visiting (and possibly the shrill coming from ‘little people’), lots of exciting wrapping paper mountains, flashing lights and just in general a lot more ‘buzz’ around.
We humans refer to it as ‘the Christmas Rush’. For me, it’s absolute ‘crazy time’ busy.
My tip for this time of year, is for both your dogs and yourselves, to keep up the ‘release’ that comes from including exercise in your life.
With dogs (and dare I say it, at least some humans) pent up energy causes an increase in tension and anxiety.
Also, mental exercise for your dog is just as important especially at this time of year.
Did your dog get into those bags of Christmas presents you didn’t even have a chance to wrap yet? He or she may be bored?
You and your pack will get through the Christmas crazies :-) Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant & Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.
