UK news Wood Green warns pet behaviour may change due to COVID-19 chaos last minute news
MetiNews.Com - The Cambridgeshire-based charity has offered its help to anyone struggling with their pets
Breaking News ! Wood Green has warned owners that they are likely to notice a change in their pets' behaviour due to the COVID-19 upheaval. As pets' behaviour is driven by their emotional state, the Godmanchester-based animals charity has warned, recent unprecedented events could cause your furry friend to act unusually - but not to worry, Wood Green has offered to provide free help and support. As the UK moves beyond the COVID-19 pandemic and routines are overturned again, our animals will also be affected. The charity said it was 'highly likely' that pets, particularly dogs, will feel distressed when everyone returns to work, school and social lives. Many owners who welcomed a puppy into their homes at the beginning of lockdown may also notice changes as the dog enters adolescence, meaning reality could hit home about how much commitment is needed to look after a pet.

. For dogs, unwanted barking could be caused by excitement, frustration, anger, fear or anxiety. For cats, feelings of frustration can lead to aggression, often due to them not being able to exhibit natural hunting behaviours.

Linda Cantle, Director of Pet & Owner Support Services at Wood Green, said: “In a perfect world, all pets would be well-bred and well-raised. However, even if someone has done a great job of raising a pet, or if they have rehomed an adult pet from a centre like Wood Green, there will be lots of issues to consider along the way – especially during unforeseen circumstances like we’re living in now. “It can be incredibly stressful when having trouble with a pet, so the best approach is to be proactive and seek help as soon as possible. This is the first step to overcoming an issue, as it can be much harder to change a behaviour that’s been long established.” Wood Green has said it will give assistance and services to all owners who need support, offering everything from from free pet advice to behavioural expertise. The charity also offers service to owners who can no longer look after their pets, whatever the reason - be it work or financial pressures, health or simply not having enough free time.
