There are reasons to believe dogs can sense your anxiety, similarly as they can smell fear. When we feel stressed out or worried, our body goes through various hormonal changes – the levels of adrenaline, cortisol, and other stress-related chemicals in our body increase. Some people believe that dogs can sense these changes even before you become aware of them.
Service dogs are trained to sense upcoming anxiety attacks by smelling those bodily signs of anxiety.
