Trying to find cool patches with water
Do you find your dog sprawled wherever she finds any water? She’s probably trying to keep herself cool! It’s time you whisk her away to the cool breeze of the mountains.
Dogs feel hotter than humans because their body temperature is higher than that of humans. Also, dogs don’t sweat, they pant. So, as soon as you notice that your dog is panting more than the usual, it is advisable you help him by taking him to a cool place to relax.
One possible reason for sudden increase in aggression can be lack of adequate exercise, which a dog may avoid because of the heat or the busy streets of the town. Exercise is imperative for burning excess energy in order to maintain a healthy state of mind. So, if a Dog is taken at a place where he can playfully burn his energy, chances are that he turns out to be less aggressive.
The separation anxiety and the confinement anxiety are the most common types of anxiety a dog faces.
