Tips to help your dog feel more relaxed:

1

Provide your dog with regular exercise to stimulate their mind and help them feel calmer.

2

Define and follow a set routine for your dog to ensure their day is consistent, as this makes them feel more secure.

3

Assess your dog’s environment and remove or manage any triggers that could unsettle them.

4

Empower your dog to choose their social setting; allow your dog to retreat if feeling overwhelmed.

5

Introduce your dog to new situations slowly if necessary and provide them with positive reinforcement. Ensure they do not feel threatened in the new situation and never punish your dog for any anti-social behaviours.

6

Provide your pet with activities like nose-work or obedience training to keep them stimulated and occupied.
