Dogs have long been our four-legged best friends. They always seem to know when we're happy or sad, feeling silly or stressed, or when we need a cuddle or two.
Dogs can sense how we're feeling by interpreting our body language and our voice frequencies. They're very observant and can pick up on subtle changes in our emotions based on the way we move or the expressions on our faces.
In times of stress, our dogs are ready to comfort us, but does the canine ability to understand and empathize with our emotions put them at greater risk for becoming anxious themselves?
Do you have a dog who can’t ever seem to settle down?
You might notice your pup’s tail stays tucked and he avoids eye contact. Or maybe your dog is constantly pacing and can’t seem to find his "happy place" to be able to relax. Or maybe he’s always hiding.
You’re probably wondering what’s going on with your pup, right? We’re sad to say that all of these types of behavior point to a canine anxiety disorder. But they aren’t the only telltale signs of an anxious dog.
How can you tell if your dog is suffering from stiff joints or hip pain? It would be wonderful if our pups could simply tell us when they’re joints are painful, but instead, we have to rely on picking up on some subtle behavior clues.
We’re here to help by going over the most common signs of hip joint problems in dogs, what causes them, and how you can help your dog find relief from hip pain.
Let’s start by figuring out what type of hip problem your pup is dealing with...

More aches and pains are a natural part of the aging process – for us and our pets. If you have an older dog who’s started to slow down, chances are you want to be able to help ease their discomfort, right?
One of the best ways to make your pup more comfortable and maintain the spring in their step is to give them a supplement for hip and joint health. One that’s been formulated just for their unique canine needs.
One of the reasons dogs make such wonderful companions is how similar they are to us in so many ways. Our furry friends are social creatures and they love to take part in family life almost as much as we do.
But some of the similarities we have with our canine counterparts can be more frustrating than fun. In this case, we’re talking about how dogs can also suffer from dry, itchy skin. Our pups can even be plagued by dandruff, just like us!
Of course, our dogs can’t tell us exactly why they’re suddenly scratching like crazy, so it’s up to us as pet parents to keep an eye out for the symptoms of itchy skin or dandruff and do our best to find a solution to the problem.
Allergies in dogs are just as common as they are in humans, and they can cause your pup some serious discomfort, whether they’re seasonal or environmental.
