Hello.

Our 2 1/2 year old female boxer is crazy at times with her anxiety. She had us up all night with her crying and barking and pacing. Any suggestions with products that one may use to help. Thank you

Hello.

Does she get exercised regularly? Do you play mind game with her? Usually the anxiety will show up when they are left alone and not one is around. Where does she sleep at night? Has she been checked out by a vet to be sure she isn't in any type of pain? I'm just thinking it could be most anything. If she is healthy I would probably do training with her and if you have a backyard let her run and play ball. Playing games with dogs tires them, and that actually makes them tired. Right now I am playing "hot zone" with my guy. Sort of like place, Your can go to recoilers.com and see the game. It is done by Susan Garrett, she is opening her online training, I'm not going that too much for my budget. She teaches you not to lure your dog but to reward them for making good choices. I didn't really think much of it but its working. Overtime my boy steps on his mat I give him a treat, he now goes to it without a word and sits and wait to see if he will get anything. He does. We have not worked on duration though. We also play its your choice where you simply hold high value treats closed in your hand with it sitting on your lap. You say nothing at first the dog tries to paw t get it but you keep yr hand closed when he backs away you hand him a treat, do not let him take it. Lats you proceed to open hand then floor, that works too my dog no longer just takes things on his own, He waits to see. Of course when I see this behavior I do treat him. She ha other games but as i said he is too costly for me. Oh and you may want to try one of those calming collars on her. Looks like the old type of flea collar, I think adapt calming collar is what they are called.

Based on your other post, you've had her since March. Has she always been like this, or is it new?
Is there anywhere she did have access to at night that she doesn't now? Our 2 year old will whine and not settle down when we put a barricade up by our front door. He's used to being able to go over and look out the side windows and it drives him crazy when he can't.

If he wants to play, he will grab a toy and nudge you with it. LOL

Sounds in the evening get him up and looking around and/or barking- if we are still awake (once we all go to sleep he only gets up to use the bathroom outside). This is part of his night routine, he will usually go outside around 8 PM and bark for a couple of minutes.

What time are you feeding her? Our boys will start whining and walking on you, licking, nudging, etc...about 6 in the morning because they are hungry and that's usually breakfast time (weekdays).

We've never used the storm jackets or other things that are specifically for anxiety, but they are an option.

Kai gets up at 6 too runs out takes care of business and comes running looking for his breakfast, eats and goes back to bed till about 10. LOL At night he paces from 3:30 so we finally give him his dinner at 4- 4:15. At 8 he goes outside again takes care of his needs and runs to his bed in my daughters room waiting patiently for his milk bone, Thats it till morning. He is the easiest dog I've ever owned.(oh he does goes out a few times during the day but it out and back in)

Oh, God! Poo! Indeed, it is very painful when your pet suffer. To tell the truth, I always worry about my dogs, we had some unpleasant experience with new puppies. Many years ago we had a dog with epilepsy and it was really scary when he had a seizure. The poor animal suffered so. Our second dog had a disease linked with the knees, and once a neighbor poisoned him and he died very hard. This was a very big loss for us and I was left at a loss why did they do this. I understand that if a dog is drooling and acting strangely it is a cause for concern, but this is a pet dog and knee problems are not rabid.

So you can be sure that your dog will be fine, especially if you try to talk to your veterinarian about taking kratom capsules for sale. You should definitely find this useful, but don't forget to check with your doctor. My dog didn't quite make contact with me before taking kratom, but after that he became more calm and affectionate. I can only offer you this, but some dog owners also buy special cbd oil. At that time, they were not available and so we tried it with kratom, which we do not regret!

Many people have already recommended a lot of good recommendations, but I can say that all this does not work. When my girl had such anxiety, I tried a lot and even the vet didn't know what to do with it. I'm in doubt...
Well a Vet is neither a Dog Trainer or a Dog Behaviorist. Neither of those disciplines is there area of expertise. For most point the Vet just happens to be there point of first contact, so they ask there Vet??

You won't expect a surgeon to replace a transmission?? Nor a mechanic to mend a broken leg?? Why seek advise from someone outside of there area of expertise?? That would (I would say) ... be mistake one. And it all goes downhill from there.

But the OP seems to be long gone ... our bad. But hey your here. Sooo what's the deal with your dog and how is she now???

To be honest, I really hate it when my little boy is anxious or he just does not like something. Back in april, I got stuck in Chicago, and could not go home, I had to stay in Chicago for almost a month. When I came back, I found Billy in a really terrible state, he was at times really nervous, and sometimes really .... like depressed. We have brought him to a vet, as we were thinking that maybe something hurts him, however he was ok. The man actually advised us to try and give him some kratom capsules and see if there is anything different after a couple of days. And you know, the effect actually surprised me a lot, he is looking like the happiest dog in the whole world right now.
