Do you struggle with a dog that is stressed frequently? Are you wondering how to tell when your dog is relaxed? Many dog owners struggle with dog communication. You are not alone, and we can help you.
If you need help at home with your dog in Newbury. Dog training is our speciality.
Your dog is probably relaxed when:
1.) his tail is at it’s normal height and slowly wagging widely. A stiff tail, a super high tail, a tail wagging super quickly with a short wag, or a low tail can be signs of stress.
2.) your dog has his entire mouth opened and his jaw appears loose rather than tense.
3.) your dog’s head is cocked, ears are forward in excitement, and his eyes are soft rather than tense. Many dogs show this behavior when they are excited about food or treats.
4.) Your dog is choosing to be laying down position and is laying off to one side on his hip. If your dog wanted to get up quickly because he was stressed he probably wouldn’t be laying on his side.
We live in Middlefield, so we definitely serve Newbury. Dog training can help teach a stressed dog to relax.
