A study by the University of Helsinki in Finland has found that the more dogs are engaged in activities and the more diverse experiences and canine friends they have, the less fearful they are in new situations and environments.
Dogs that were engaged in activities the most and were actively trained were found to be the least fearful.
Some common fears that dogs have include: noise sensitivity, fear of new situations or environments, fear of slippery surfaces and fear of heights.
As part of the same study it was found that physical exercise has a positive effect on the mood in both dogs and humans. As social animals, dogs enjoy doing things with their owners.
