Hello community! I adopted my sweet Sprocket about 3 months ago. Within about a week he had discovered squeaky toys. This thrilled me to no end, seeing him play and have fun. Mostly because he has some pretty intense anxiety issues that I was informed of prior to adopting him. During the time we've been together, he has made great strides in overcoming his anxiety. So in an attempt to further strengthen our relationship, and at the advice of my friend (who happens to be Sprocket's vet, and an experienced greyhound owner), I've enrolled him in obedience classes. He is doing well, though I know he likely won't ever sit, not that it matters to me either way. But I'm worried that, possibly, the stress of the class (1 hr, 1 day/week for 5 weeks) may have made him reluctant to play with his toys. I don't recall an exact correlation between the start of class and the stoppage of play, but he no longer plays with his toys, or me, like he did in the beginning. Is this just a phase, or what? I just want my boy to be happy. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
