Dogs can pick up on their owners anxiety

Playing with your puppy may feel like a major stress reliever, but did you know that your stress can actually be spreading to your dog. A study, published in the academic journal Scientific Reports yesterday, found that dogs can pick up on their owners’ anxiety. This is the first known study of its kind to show the synchronization between the emotions of dog owners and their dogs.
If you have a dog with anxiety or diarrhea and are trying to find a way to calm your pup down, you may want to consider de-stressing yourself, first. Dogs are quite good at understanding humans. They’re definitely better at understanding us than we are at understanding them. When your pup sees you bite your nails, pacing, or being very irritable, he or she will likely pick up on it and echo your emotions, even if you don’t realize that’s what’s happening.
