Dogs show stress too—
just in different ways

Bill and Diane Knuckler’s poodle, Coco Chenille, licks and paws visitors constantly. It could be stress but people find it annoying.

Coco Chenille is a beautiful chocolate standard poodle who will soon be 2. She owns Bill and Diane Kunkler of Boca Grande and has for the last year and a half.

Bill and Diane have had standard poodles for many years and after losing their last one the family gave them Coco when she was about
6 months old. Coco stayed with most of her litter until that point. Whether from puppyhood or genetic makeup, Coco has some issues that many would find annoying. As a dog person having dealt with dogs and habits good and bad, I think they are lucky this is the least of their worries, but they do worry so it has to be addressed.
