My 1 year old Chow has been dealing with anxiety. HELP!

Postby ghostthechow » Fri Sep 22, 2017 12:26 pm

Ghost is a male chowchow. He's super friendly and very sociable. We always take him to the same groomer, but the last couple of times they changed the guy who usually showers him, and we took him in for a shower last Saturday and he's been anxious and having unusual behavior since then ! On Sunday night he peed in the house which is something he never does, he's been having nightmares, he used to love going on long walks and now he just goes out to poop real fast and then wants to go home immediately after. We really don't know what to do, we just want our playful little Ghost back :( The vet told us it will take time but it's been a week, what can we do to help him ?

Do you think the change in groomer affected him this much?
If so, I would change groomers.
Perhaps changing groomers would help and try to maintain your feeding, walking, playing schedule, as chows can become disoriented with change.
Either way, I would take him to a vet

Wait for one week. Provide Ghost the feeling that you care and love him a lot.

Dogs often know or sense things that we do not. There must be something off with the groomer or a bad trigger for your baby. Better safe than sorry. Either change groomers or go back to his previous one. Observe his behavior. He might be in some pain or have a fever.

Since he is a year old by any chance did he recently get his rabies shot?
