10 Alarming Signs Of Dog Stress That Every Owner Should Know

The best part about dog ownership is being welcomed home by tail wagging a million miles an hour.

Dogs have a way of helping us to relax and forget the stresses of the day. With that said, have you ever thought about whether your dog is feeling stressed?

We know how unpleasant feeling on edge can be, so its the last thing we want for our furry friends.

Unlike people, dogs can’t verbally communicate their stress. Instead, their emotions are manifested in their bodily functions and behaviors.

Some of the signs of dog stress might not even seem all that unusual compared to how they act on a normal day.

To help make sure your pup lives the longest, healthiest life possible, learn some of the signs of dog stress.
