What kind of dog owner doesn’t love their pet? Even the most responsible, experienced pet owners from time to time feel stressed out by certain situations or conditions. If a panic attack strikes you when your dog goes outside for a walk, it can be pretty frustrating. Your pooch isn’t being stubborn or ungrateful — it’s just reacting to something that makes them anxious. Anxiety in dogs is very common and there are several different anxiety-inducing factors that could have an adverse effect on your dog. Fortunately, CBD has been increasingly used as an anxiolytic (anxiety reducing) agent in various species of animals as well as humans. With that in mind, here are 5 high-anxiety dog breeds that should try CBD:

Shiba Inu

The Shiba Inu is a Japanese breed that was bred to hunt small game like rabbits and rodents in the early part of the Shiba Inu’s history. The Shiba Inu has been called the “the pet that Godzilla would have.” They are a highly intelligent breed that are attracted to human scent. While they aren’t aggressive towards people, they are very sensitive to their environment and are overly vigilant of sounds and smells. A Shiba Inu that doesn’t get adequate outdoor exercise or isn’t exposed to large amounts of outdoor scent may develop acute anxiety.


This fluffy, curled-up-in-a-ball dog is a Pomarancian. Known for its hypoallergenic pomaceous odor, which is said to cause allergies, Pomeranians are also prone to anxiety when left alone. If you have a Pomeranian that doesn’t get enough exercise and isn’t exposed to large amounts of outdoor scent, the pet may develop some anxiety. The pomarancian can also develop an obsessive compulsive disorder that causes excessive barking, digging and paw licking.


The Bloodhound is a scent hound that was bred to hunt blood-bearing animals like deer, hare and other small game. In addition to hunting, Bloodhounds have been used for blood sports like baiting, dog fighting and illegal blood collection. This breed is prone to anxious behaviors like excessive shyness, excessive barking and obsessive behaviors like paw licking and tail chasing. Excessive shyness in a Bloodhound could be an indication of low prey drive, which could be caused by anxiety. Or it could be caused by having a new person in the house that causes the dog to be uncomfortable. If your Bloodhound’s anxiety is caused by a new person in the house, it could be worth taking them to a training class to help them build confidence around strangers.

Old English Sheepdog

The OES is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. However, this breed is also the most sensitive to stress and high-anxiety situations. Some common symptoms of stress and anxiety in the OES include excessive barking, barks when a door is opened, obsessive behaviours like paw licking and tail chasing, and an avoidance of people.

Newfoundland Dog

The Newfoundland is a large, athletic dog that is known for its extreme affection towards its owners. However, the breed is also known for being very sensitive to stress. In fact, the AKC even stated that some Newfoundlands are prone to “anxious behavior.” Some common symptoms of stress and anxiety in the Newfoundland include excessive barking, tail-chasing, and avoidance of people.
