What can we do to help our dog relax?

asked 2020-06-08 22:28:02 -0500

Our 16 month old German shepherd/great Pyrenees sleeps on a kennel in my son's room. If he goes in there at any time & my son is not in there, our dog whines and scrapes at the kennel. Once my son goes on there, he's fine. How can we get our dog to be comfortable without our son being present.

there are also essential oils that help dogs relax like lavender and chamomile. Just place some in his forehead where he can't kick and see the results in about 15-30 minutes!

You could try to distract the dog with a puzzle toy or taking him on a walk/playing with him.
