Fearful Boston Terrier
Help! I don't know how to help my 4 yr old boston terrier. She has always been a little timid but her anxiety is increasing. Our cat died six months ago and her fearful behaviors increased ... i.e. panting, pacing, eyes bulging, running away from stimuli. She is afraid of fireworks, thunderstorms, and new animals. She is a very submissive dog. We just got a 3 lb new kitten and my dog is very afraid of her. The kitten wants to play but my dog tucks her tail, cries, and runs away. How can I help my dog adjust to our new family member?
