Dear reader, throughout my writing I have used the female gender but in all cases she refers to he and she, and her to him and her.
There is no doubt that because you are browsing through this website you have an interest and love for animals. You may be a carer of one or more dogs. Most of us dog owners certainly set out to give them a wonderful home, take care of their wellbeing (which includes good veterinary care), plenty of walks, good food, and helping her to socialise.
All these issues are not only making the dog’s life a misery but your’s and that of your family as well. This cannot be underestimated as it is potentially a reason for a very stressful home situation, or in the worst case scenario re-homing might be considered.
Pets are our true companions and are not detached from the stresses, strains and emotions we are experiencing. As they are feeling with us, or sometimes taking on our feelings, it is possible that they can be suffering quietly for many years. They either withdraw, become depressed and despondent or agitated and nervous. In some cases the animal will begin showing aggressive behaviour or become ill.
