bc4pack Posted June 17, 2007 Report Share Posted June 17, 2007 Since the topic was brought up with the panicked escape of a precious 7 yr old BC in the Houston area, I thought folks might be interested in this link below. Herdings breeds seem to be the most widely affected by situational anxiety, although I've seen other breeds affected too...several Goldens for instance. Tends to be genetic and appears as dogs age. In this day and age there truly is no reason for any dog to suffer the panic and anxiety that situations like storms and fireworks bring. The anti-anxiety meds will settle the mind without making a dog 'dopey'. Yes, I know, I am not a vet...but any vet that knows ANYTHING about fear and behaviour will agree. http://www.dogaware.com/anxiety.html For more info on behaviour google Dr Karen Overall.
