7 Year Old is forgetting her Commands acting neurotic?

Post by media310 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:06 pm

been a while since I posted. Any ideas what could be causing this? 7 Year Old is forgetting her Commands acting neurotic?

We were walking today and I gave her the heal command and she laid down? I told her to lay down inside the house and she was trying to shake my hand.

Seems the last few months she is acting more neurotic?

Is this due to lack of exercise? Mental health stuff? Needs more stimulation.

Or do I need to start from scracth and re-train her? #frustrating day

See your vet. Could be many things or nothing ... hearing?, brain problem?

She's not acting neurotic. She's acting confused. Good posts above. I'd do some easy non-force training, and if no better results,follow the first two posters' advice. Unless I could detect changes in eating, pooing, hearing (especially), general attitude, in which case I'd follow the advice immediately.
