bedYou love your dog, don’t you? Well, they love you too, the difference in your love is that your dogs love for you is unconditional. They will be there for you whenever you need them and they never shy away from a chance to express it. Unlike humans, who have a social group we can communicate with, all your dog has is you, you are the epicenter of their world and when you are not around, it’s like they have lost their only friend and their connection to the world.

This will cause anxiety to build in your dog. Anxiety comes from being separated from their parents at birth and also from you leaving the house. They simply think that they have been left forever, they don’t understand that you are going to return to them and they begin to build this anxiety, with it increasing the longer you are away from them. Have you ever returned from a holiday after leaving your pets with a friend, to find that your dog is super excited to see you? That’s the anxiety lifting and the tension dissipating from their behavior.

Anxiety, particularly separation anxiety can cause our lovely dogs to do things that we may find frustrating. Digging and burrowing are a primary means of your dog relieving this anxiety. They burrow to relieve stress and some say they are even searching for you with every hole that they dig. Containing and alleviating this stressful anxiety in your dog is not as challenging as it sounds, all you need to do is give them an environment in which they feel secure and comfortable.


Small dogs love hiding in reclusive spaces to feel safe. Have you ever had your dog spooked by something, perhaps an animal, a loud postman or a loud neighbor, and they run for cover? They disappear for hours, only for you to find them cowering in a corner or under a couch somewhere inside or outside your home, sound familiar? So why not treat yourself and your dog to warmth and comfort wherever life takes you, a happy dog means a happy home and after all they’re your best friend aren’t they, so surely they deserve the best!  So bring ring along a  dog blanket or throw for a familiar soft surface when traveling or drape it over furniture for stylish protection from pet hair.  Keep a happy friend for life!

When small dogs feel stressed or anxious, they seek safety and the dark, silent safe space of the couch gives them the security they need to calm down and feel confident again and this is where a dog blanket can be perfect to help them alleviate their stress.  There are not many options for you to alleviate their stress, other than to hold them and talk to them softly. They will eventually calm down and stop shivering or moaning if you stroke them and speak softly to them.
