For all of the responsibility that Dogs put on themselves it’s no surprise that they tend to get stressed out easily. Dogs are often anxious, restless, and worried. They feel the weight of the world on their backs and have trouble relaxing when so much is wrong with society.

This defensive, judgemental side of the Dog stems from giving too much of themselves. Dogs need to realize that they must take care of themselves first if they are going to have anything to offer others.
