Hi, my name is Dave, and I own a very large dog who is absolutely afraid of his own shadow. His feelings of fear and anxiety only seem to intensify when I leave him at a doggy daycare or boarding facility. However, I have to travel a lot for work. Because of that, I have learned how to pick calming facilities for my dog. I have also learned how to help him reduce his own anxiety. I wanted to share my tips and experiences with others, so I started this blog on my dog. If you have an anxious pet or if you just like to read about pets in general, please explore.
