Tips to Reduce Stress in Dogs: Benefits of Natural Chews and Snacks in Stressful Situations

We know how important your little boss is to you and we understand how unpleasant it is to see him restless or stressed. Have you noticed that sometimes biting or having something in your mouth comforts you? The same thing happens to them! Here we present how natural chews and snacks can be your allies to help alleviate your dog's anxiety.

1. Why do dogs experience stress?

Just like humans, our dogs can face situations that cause them anxiety: a change of house, the arrival of a new member of the family, loud noises such as fireworks or storms, among others. Recognizing the signs of stress will allow you to take appropriate steps to help him.

2. Teethers and natural snacks: effective distraction

  • Distract the mind : Offering him a chew or snack can focus his attention on a specific task and take him away from the source of stress.

  • Mental stimulation : Figuring out how to chew a teether or get the delicious center of a snack can be a brain teaser.

  • Environmental enrichment: Imagine eating the same thing every day in the same place... Introducing a variety of snacks and chews into your diet will activate your mind.

3. Dental health and relaxation, all in one

Chewing is not only distracting, but also benefits your dog's dental health. The chewing action can help reduce tartar buildup and keep your teeth clean. It's a win-win situation!

4. Release of endorphins

The action of chewing and biting releases endorphins in the dog's brain, which can help calm and relax an anxious dog. It is similar to when we find relief in certain activities when we are tense.

5. What to look for in a teether or snack?

  • Natural Ingredients : Look for products without artificial additives, colors, or preservatives.

  • Right for Your Size : A teether that is too small or large may not be effective and may present a choking hazard.

  • Variety : Offers different textures and flavors to keep your dog interested and stimulated.


At Guauful , we understand the importance of taking care of the emotional well-being of our beloved dogs. By offering natural chews and snacks, you are not only providing a delicious reward, but also a tool that can help reduce their anxiety and stress. Help your dog relax and enjoy life to the fullest!
