My dog has recently had a major change in behavior.
He is a 5-year old shih tzu mix. When he was younger, he went to doggy day care several days a wekk, and then when we moved, had a daily dog walker. When we moved last year, he was crated most of the day, and he was fine.
We moved again this year and suddenly he has started peeing his crate when left there during the day, or even when we just leave to run errands.
Whatís worse is that he suddenly acts fearful of my partner. He is fine with me. I take him out, bring him in and tell him to stop, he stops for me. With my partner, he comes in the house and immediately runs away. Sometimes, he wonít even go outside with partner, instead running away when he opens the patio doors.
We are at our witsí end and donít know what to do! My partner is extremely frustrated with the dog and thinking about giving him up. Does anyone have any experience with this type of sudden behavioral change?
