Do the holidays cause anxiety for your pet? Many dogs are nervous around new people and loud parties. Make sure that your dog has a "safe zone" during the holiday. He or she should be able to get away to a quiet room or their kennel to escape the activities. You may also want to consider a "Thundershirt". This tight fitting garment was originally designed for dogs that have thunderstorm anxieties, but has been shown to help dogs with a variety of other anxieties as well. The garment is akin to "swaddling a baby". It is snug and gives the dog a sense of security. Check out their website thundershirt.com for more information. These shirts can be purchased at Westgate Pet Clinic in Minneapolis, and we have a money back guarantee!
