Scared dog

491 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  LeoRose
Hi, my dog (staffy cross mastiff) has started to get very scared about walking on our tiled floor. He walks on it now and starts slipping like it’s an ice rink. He has never had a problem before. He has also never had a problem with other dogs and when we took him for a bath today he got all agitated and starting barking. Again he has never shown this behaviour before.. any help would be great!!

Any sudden behavior change like this is call for a vet visit. Pain or thyroid problems could contribute to things like stability or comfort around other dogs, or even directly cause hormonal changes that impact behavior. I'd bring this to my vet and rule out physical causes before I assumed this was something that could be handled with training, if it were me.
