One of my two dogs (about a year old) is having trouble adjusting to a recent move to a new state. He is fretful and nervous. What can I do to help his anxiety?

  • What he does exactly? In what kind of situation are you keeping them?

It is hard to answer as the question is quite broad, but I would have a few advices:

  • Check with your vet that there is no real "medical" problem with your dog linked to his new condition
  • A pheromone diffuser could help the dog relax during the day, and in particular help him relieve his anxiety before/when sleeping. The technical term is Dog appeasing pheromone , your vet could advice you on that
  • Help your dog adjust to his new life by keeping a strict schedule, at least temporarily, for the meals, walks, sleeping time, playing time, etc.
