Modelling behaviour

Is your dog exhibiting signs of aggressiveness or anxiety? Hostility is easily detectable, but anxiety may be difficult to diagnose if you don't know what to look for. If your dog displays any of the following behaviour, there is a good chance they may be feeling anxious.

  • Barking or howling when you're away from home
  • Panting and pacing (especially if it's not hot)
  • Shivering
  • Running away and/or cowering in the corner of the house
  • Digging holes
  • Escaping the yard
  • Destroying furniture
  • Self-harm, including excessive licking or chewing
  • Refusing to eat (lack of appetite)
  • Urinating frequently
  • A general inability to settle

Bear in mind that anxiety can be described as a state of mind encompassing constant alertness, combined with fear or uncontrollable worry, so aside from such behaviour giving us a headache, it's distressing to know that our beloved pet's mental health and wellbeing is suffering.

At ALFADOG, we use our knowledge of individual and group social behaviour to address all such behavioural issues.

To plan effective strategies, we need to understand your dog's specific reaction and limitations. Understanding these, we can create essential methods for coordinated and effective behaviour modelling.

For anxiety, we analyze all areas and potential sources to determine the cause. For example, such behaviour can sometimes be triggered by a certain noise or noises, in which case we would experiment with emitting various audible sounds.

We also test their reactions regarding behaviour within the dog's daily routine, for instance, when we leave our dog at home for lengthy periods. At AlfaDog, we provide you with tailored solutions, always focusing on their wellbeing, with an emphasis on health and integrity.
