Unruhe bei Hunden

Restlessness in dogs

Reading time: 5 minutes

Where it comes from and how you support your four-legged friend

New Year's Eve crashers and sirens, long car journeys, thunderstorms, large crowds or visits to the vet - restlessness in dogs can be triggered by very different factors. Dogs react restlessly when they cannot handle a certain situation.

Physical origins can be, for example, hunger or thirst, heat or cold, lack of sleep or pain. But social causes such as frequent aloneness, isolation or an aggressive environment can also cause nervousness, as can noise, hectic pace, unknown people, threats and sensory overload. For many dogs, behavioral problems can also be linked to bad experiences from the past.

How does restless behavior manifest itself?

Every dog ​​reacts differently to uncomfortable situations. The classics are ears back, shallow breathing and tight muscles. Red eyes, blue tongue and white saliva (“tricolor”) are also symptoms that can occur. Dogs are usually restless, hyperactive and particularly jumpy. Increased barking or yelping, diarrhea or jumping actions also often occur. The tension puts the body into a kind of “alert state” so that it can react quickly with fight or flight. In the worst case, restless dogs can become aggressive towards themselves and those around them or, for example when going for a walk, break free and run away.

Further support for restlessness in dogs

Relaxing massages:
e.g. Tellington TTouch method, in which the parasympathetic nervous system is activated with gentle circular and stroking movements and the heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure can be calmed.

Sound therapy for desensitization: Using sound recordings, dogs can get used to startling noises. You have the option to vary the intensity and duration of the noises and thus better prepare him for a stressful situation.

Create safe retreats:
Drawn curtains and closed roller shutters help, for example, to block out siren noises or New Year's firecrackers.

Long walks with fun: Long walks contribute to psychological balance. Give your four-legged friend the right amount of energy so that he doesn't react restlessly and nervously due to insufficient demands or boredom.

Training with animal psychologists or dog trainers:
They are professionals when it comes to dealing with animals. We get to the bottom of the causes of nervousness and restlessness so that we can then use targeted therapy methods or exercises to provide relief.
