Unhappy Hi I'm new and I need urgent advice

Hi there I've just joined. My name is lolla and my dogs name is lucky. I urgently need some advice. My dog is usually an outgoing dog, she's about 3 years old. Recently she doesn't want to go out and she just wants to sleep. She doesn't want to sleep anywhere but in my arms or right next to me. When I try to play with her and I slightly lift my hand she gets scared and moves away. She sleeps all day on my bed. She doesn't eat a lot anymore like she used to and I hardly see her drinking water. Her nippels are large but her tummy seem empty so I don't think she's pregnant. Can someone please help me out? I'm worried about her. She seems very down and scared at times.

Hi Lolla and welcome aboard. Can you think of anything that may have brought this behaviour on? Has she ever been scolded in the past? have you always had her or is she a rescue? Just trying to bulid a picture in my mind what may have caused this. But I would take her to your vets and tell them what's happened too just to be on the safe side Please keep us updated!

Has she been around someone when you weren't there? I would also take her to the vet since there are some physical symptons.

Well I've had ger since she was about 6 weeks and she's never been like this. If I just raise my voice a little she stares at like what am I doing wrong. She just sleeps ons my bed and she follows me around wherever I go. When I stand up in the morning she moans the whole tume and then come sit on my lap and stops.

Have you ever scolded her/shouted at her? I think she is becoming too dependant on you and very clingy! She knows how to push your button and you respond, Imagine this for Eg: You bring your new puppy home and you set ground rules etc where the puppy will sleep and you go to your bed all is well then pup starts crying so natrually you go and check what's up If this happens a lot the pup works out very quickly if I cry some one will come to me! It's association thinking! Yes having cuddles/loves off your dog is great but what you describe isn't love I think a behaviourist can hep you get back to a normal balance soon as it's not good for you or your dog. Please keep us updated!

No I don't think it is that. I raise my voice when she does wrong. I don't hit her though. She is very obedient so I don't really have to scold her.

Thanks for that How long has this been going on for? I think changing your 'tone' of voice when she does wrong is ok but shouting at her isn't. Was she in the past a confident dog? Can you refresh my memory what breed she is? Something doesn't add up here as to the change in her behaviour if she was a old dog then behaviiur changes are possible. But you do need a proffesional to delve deeper in to this mystery I also think that a visit to your vet is in order to establish the possible causes why this might be happening! This would be my top prioty right now! The longer you leave it the harder it will be to put right!!! Good luck

I would say go to the vet.. a dog that just wants to sleep would be considered lethargic. Fear and panic can be related to pain. To ensure it is a behavioral issue I would take her to the vet for a check up to begin with.
Good luck with the dog!
