Do you have anxiety? The same thing happens to your dog!
According to data coming to light after new research, our favorite pets perceive our feelings and experience them in their own way. So if you see your dog anxious, then it is very likely that the cause is you.
The Linköping University research in Sweden has shown that the stress level of the owner has a great influence on dogs.
The survey involved 58 dogs and their owners (all women). An analysis sample was the level of cortisol (biomarker for stress) which was studied through the hairs of the owners and dogs.
The results of the study showed that women with a high cortisol level had dogs at an equally high level while female dogs with low cortisol levels also had reduced prices.
Since scientists are confident that there is a link between human and dog stress, what is surprising is the fact that two different species manage to sync their feelings in this way.
The next time you see your dog strained, remember how it may be your own behavior that affects him.
But how does anxiety appear in dogs?
