Yeah, it becomes a snowball effect. The more she's anxious, the more I get anxious, so the more she gets anxious.Try talking to your vet about calming medication... But also talk to a behaviorist to see if maybe something you are doing is reinforcing the behavior.
The little one pictured above is a permanent ball of nerves and it's driven me up the wall but I know that some of it is down to me so I've had to work hard on myself to stop reinforcing the behavior and slowly but surely it is reaping its rewards... She spent an hour this evening sleeping on my lap cuddling her teddy... A year ago she would have destroyed the teddy in 5 minutes and then been charging around the garden.
Glad to hear your dog is better, gives me some motivation.
