Holidays Celebrations Might be Stressing Out Your Dog

As we're loading up on holiday excitement, presents and celebrations...make sure it doesn't put your dog into overload.

The American Kennel Club says Christmas activities can put stress on your dog. Situations like loud noises, lots of new visitors, and new environments…could cause fear in them. If you’re traveling later this week, sheltering your dog could create separation anxiety. Experts say to watch for some key signs like relieving themselves in the house, destructive activities, excessive barking and pacing. It’s a good idea to create a “safe space” and have it ready if they need it.
