Hello! I've owned a dog before, so I'm not a new dog owner. But this new dog we got about 2 months ago is doing things that are new! He is totally fine and walks around any other part of the house just fine - he's gotten used to things really fast. But when it comes to my room in particular, he will wait at my door for hours, just staring inwards, and then literally bowl you over to get inside for absolutely no reason, then barrel his way under my couch and stay there while refusing to move unless you drag him out. I understand that dogs hide under things when they're scared, but this is really odd. Nothing in my room is a threat - though the cats are in here a lot - and if he's scared of anything in here, why does he want to be in here so badly?

Honestly....just sounds like a weird dog thing. They all have some sort of quirk. If he's not hurting anything and it's not detrimental in any way, I would just let it ride. If you find it annoying, you can bar him from the room or block the bottom of the couch.

You could also try giving him his own "den", like a crate covered with a blanket to make it nice and dark.

Sounds like a crate trained dog. Get him a crate, leave the door open and don't worry about it. Ignore it.

If you want him to come out usually REALLY good food works (like chicken, roast beef and so forth). Lure him out with that.

It takes about 6 months for a dog to be "yours" so I would simply relax and see if a plastic crate in another part of the house helps him out.
