Indoor elimination is a pitfall of pet ownership that can cause extreme aggravation and become costly. In fact, according to the American Pet Products Association National Pet Owners Survey, more than 20 percent of dog owners named paper training and toilet habits as a number one drawback to owning a dog. Despite strict housebreaking training methods and punishments, determining the cause of indoor elimination can be a struggle.
What pet owners may not know is that pet “accidents” are many times results of anxiety…not poor training. Indoor elimination can be a telltale sign that a pet might be stressed or troubled. Anxiety can be detrimental to a pet’s overall health and wellbeing and ultimately leads to negative behaviors, such as peeing or pooping indoors. By calming a dog’s anxiety, negative behaviors including indoor elimination can be combatted effectively.
At ThunderWorks, we know that anxiety caused by meeting new animals or people or anxiety caused from separation from an owner can cause dogs to eliminate indoors. It can be a frustrating occurrence for pet owners and even happen the most well-trained of dogs, simply because they are feeling uneasy or stressed. Luckily, we offer a variety of products that will not only calm your anxious pup… but hopefully prevent accidents in the future!
