That can’t or won’t tolerate being alone
There are between 10 to 15 breeds of dogs that can’t be left alone or can’t tolerate being alone. We have no underlying reason why it is just that they don’t like being alone. They have to be with you or someone at all times.
That is hard when you have to go to work and have to leave them alone for long periods of time. My best advice if you choose one of these breeds to be sure this is what you want because once you get this particular breed, there is no going back.
These are purebred dogs and they can be mixed breeds as well. With them being mixed breed dogs they carry different traits of the different breeds that they are mixed with.
These are the high anxiety breeds of dogs
I am going to provide a list of these breeds so you can make the right decision on what kind of puppy or dog you want.
Affenpinscher, Border Collie, American Pit Bull Terrier, Bichon Frise, Italian Greyhound, Chihuahua, Chinese Crested, Maltese, Yorkshire Terrier, French Bulldog. Fox Terrier, English Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund, Pomeranian, Poodles, Australian Shephard.
These dogs needs outweigh anything else. Now you can get a crate and keep them in there till you get home and put stuff animals in there for company, but they may be confetti by the time you get home. Or have a dog sitter be with them but remember your budget you always have to consider that first and for most.
The last but certain not the least alternative is getting them an anxiety compression shirt for dogs. That help a lot better than putting them on anxiety drugs. I would discuss that with a vet first and see what he/she has to say but most likely they will probably recommend to you a compression shirt depending on the severity of the anxiety. Amazon.com
Talk with your vet
Talk with your vet ask plenty of questions about high anxiety dogs and what the particular issues are. Do your research so you know what you are getting yourself into and you don’t want to go in blindly. You want to know everything about this. You want to be comfortable and having all the facts on this subject.
You don’t want to keep your dog doped up on pills either all the time you want something that is going to keep their energy up and not down. You want the best for your dog or puppy because you may get it is as a puppy or as a dog and you need to know what the deal is.
Some of these breeds are small and some are medium size but then again they can be large dogs too. I just want you to be happy and your pet to be happy.
Remember to adopt from your local shelter. They need love and homes too.
