Dogs have struggled during lockdown with owners reporting an increase in barking and biting. Charity the Dogs Trust carried out a study to explore the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Britain’s pooches, and have warned of an impending behaviour crisis in pets. More than 25% of owners say their dog has developed at least one new problem since the start of lockdown. This is combined with a staggering 82% of owners reporting an increase in barking, or whining when they are busy.

狗在疫情时代很受熬煎,狗主人都说吠叫和咬人的情况增多。慈善机构“狗狗信任会”展开了一项研究,证明新冠疫情对英国狗狗的影响,并正告说宠物将出现行动危机。有逾越四分之一的狗主人说开端居家隔离今后,狗狗至少出现了一种新成绩。另外,多达82%的狗主人说吠声增多,或许他们在忙的时辰狗乱叫的情况有所增长。

The study also found online searches for ‘dog bark’ increased by around 48% – and searches for ‘dog bite’ increased by around 40%. Rachel Casey, from the charity, said: ‘These are challenging times as millions of us across the country have had our daily lives turned upside down. ‘While some dogs have been happy to have their human family at home more, others have been stressed by reduced exercise, inability to find a quiet place to rest or no contact with other dogs. ‘Our research shows some early warning signs that lockdown is having a negative impact on some dogs’ behaviour.

研究也发明网上对“狗叫”的搜索量增长了约48%,“狗咬人”的搜索量增长了约40%。该慈善机构的Rachel Casey说:“现在我们正处于艰苦时代,全国稀有百万人的平常生活都产生了完全可以上下分的电玩软件改变。固然有些狗狗认为主人在家的时间多了很开心,但其他狗狗由于锤炼增添、没有安静的歇息处所或许不克不及和其他狗狗玩而变得烦躁。我们的研究发清楚明了隔离对狗狗行动产生消极影响的早期征象。”

‘A big worry for us is what the long-term impact of lockdown will have on dogs’ ability to cope when left home alone. ‘Dogs that had separation anxiety before the lockdown are likely to get worse when left again as owners head back to work – but we also expect to see new cases developing, because other dogs, and particularly puppies, have learnt to expect company all day.’ People have also seen a 20% increase in their dogs frequently seeking attention, and there has been a 54% rise in the number of people saying their dog has hidden or moved away when approached. The Dogs Trust said it is now worries that if these behavioural problems aren’t identified and treated early on that the country could see an increase in dog abandonment in the future – or even euthanasia. The charity, which said the single biggest reason why dogs are abandoned is because of behaviour-related issues, predicts that up to 40,000 dogs could be at risk of abandonment as a result of the pandemic.

我们很大的一个担心就是隔离对独安闲家的狗狗会产生什么经久影响。主人停工,狗狗又要被单独留在家了,疫情前就有分别焦炙的狗狗在疫情以后情况会变得更糟,但也能够出现新情况,由于其他狗狗,特别是小狗崽,曾经习气了等待一成天都有人陪。人们发明狗狗频繁吸引留意力的情况增长了20%,说接近狗狗时狗狗躲起来或跑掉落的人数增长了54%。狗狗信任会表示,现在大家广泛有个担心的成绩,假设这些行动成绩没有被早期认定并治疗的话,那将来可以上下分的电玩软件全国范围内会有更多狗狗被摈弃,乃至可以上下分的电玩软件安乐逝世。该慈善机构说宠物狗被摈弃最重要的缘由是宠物狗行动相干的成绩,意味着受疫情影响,有多达40,000只狗狗将有被抛弃的风险。
