FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG – SIGNS OF ANXIETY? July 14, 2006

At his check-up at the Vets this week, the Vet commented that he saw evidence of anxiety in Dexter’s behavior, with the implication as I understood the report that this behavior was general and not situational. By being anxious, a dog is more likely to be dangerous. I suppose it is catch 22. Dexter tends to be reactive, so I try to avoid as much as possible to avoid other people and dogs. This means that he is not given the opportunity to socialize.

I have tried to look at this week’s photos for evidence of anxiety. There is not much evidence I can see with regard to Sasha.
