How to identify fear in dogs
Dogs can't tell us with words when they feel afraid, but they sure are telling us with their bodies. Do you know what to look for?
Many dogs stress during periods of change in their lives. It's important to be ready to recognise the signs of anxiety in your dog and remember to give them space, especially when settling in.

Even a relatively well-rounded dog that has not experienced neglect or harsh treatment can be stressed or fearful in a new home or new environment. 

This poster from Dr Sophia Yin shows many of the common signs dogs will exhibit when feeling unsure about something.
