Just like humans, dogs can be fearful, shy and anxious. Fear and anxiety can be caused by many different reasons, but fearful behavior in dogs is most often caused by an early traumatic experience. How do I know if my dog suffers from severe anxiety and fear? What are the signs and signals of fear, and what can I do when my dog feels frightened and panics? We had a talk with the “Fearful Dogs” expert, Bettina Specht, who gave us great information about fearful dogs.
