As a dog trainer and canine behavior consultant first, I see all sorts of health and behavior situations. Often times I am called to train dogs with anxieties and fears that truly limit the dog and clients lives. This could affect car rides, walks, leaving the home to run errands, having guests over and even living in stressful multi-pet households.
I always seek to minimize stress in my animals and training so if I perceive the pet to be in pain or have a certain level of anxiety while training I may refer them to a vet to ask about medication. Unfortunately, while veterinary medications may help, they can have a lot of unwanted side effects and even make things worse.
