Signs your dog is stressed

Dogs are stressed out just like humans. Because they are also living, thinking, feeling and sharing animals. There are more people who overlook this fact, which seems very natural, while raising dogs. It’s not because the guardians are bad, it’s just because they don’t know what dogs do when they’re stressed or how they express themselves. So in this posting, we’re going to look at some of the dog’s stress symptoms that we can observe.


lick their mouths or front feet with their tongues

Look closely at my dog’s face, especially around his mouth and front paws. Doesn’t it have red fur on it? A white puppy can be observed better. Dogs often lick their mouths or front feet with their tongues sticking out when they are anxious or stressed. Stressed dogs’ saliva is oxidized by touching the air and turns red. If a dog licks his body severely and turns red, try to figure out what causes stress and help him stay in a more comfortable environment rather than preventing the dog from licking itself.


dog’s eyes are exceptionally sunken and dark

Secondly, the second symptom that can measure a dog’s stress is under the eyes, which is called a dark circle in human terms, right? There are days when the dog’s eyes are exceptionally sunken and dark. This is also a typical stress symptom for dogs. I usually look at children’s faces in the morning and check the degree of dark circles under my eyes. Why don’t you check the dark circles under the dog’s eyes from tomorrow morning?


inappropriate urination

Lastly, inappropriate urination, one of the most common stress symptoms. There are many people who think that the dog that mastered the bathroom suddenly urinates in the wrong place and needs to retrain the toilet. Interestingly, when I was asked for toilet training, I had only once in the past few years to actually conduct toilet training. (And the dog mastered the bathroom in half an hour…) Especially the day it rained and we couldn’t go out for a walk, the day we had a big fight, the day we had a lot of households moving into the complex, the day the guests came to our house. On days when something unfamiliar happens to your dog, you often express your stress with urine. Why don’t you comfort our dog for a while on that day instead of blaming the dog for the bathroom mistake that he showed you as a stress expression?

These are some of the stress symptoms of dogs that I’ve been looking into so far. The key to communicating and communicating well with dogs lies in “understanding their expressions and expressing their feelings appropriately.” I hope all guardians who visit the will learn how to express their feelings and be filled with happy days for each other.
