Hi Everyone! I've had my greyhound for about 3.5years now. Within the past 6 months I've noticed some behavioral changes that have me worried. First off, he is way more nervous on our hardwood floors. He gets very weird about walking around corners and furniture and has stopped jumping on the couch/bed like he used to. He's stopped running on areas that are bumpy as if he's worried about his footing. And lastly he's started acting weird at night when there are shadows, he gets freaked out about shadows on walks and has on a couple of occasions started growling at the wall which I think was related to a shadow from a lamp at night. I'm wondering if there could be something going on with his vision, especially depth perception? Although, he still sees squirrels no problem from far away in broad daylight and he's only 5 years old. I'm also wondering if anyone has suggestions for non slip pads to put under his beds and make him more comfortable on hardwoods? Thank you in advance!
Our new adopted greyhound has been with us for 6 days now, and almost everything has been perfect during our honeymoon stage. Everything except the stairs that is. She is 5 yrs old. We have hardwood floors, and our bedroom is on the 2nd floor. We read up extensively on teaching a grey to climb stairs & we've tried everything...standing behind & moving front legs then back, then we tried the treats up the stairs, I even have climbed the stairs on all fours as one site suggested. We've praised instead of scolding every single time. We've not tried to force her up by her collar, and we've not carried her. But still, no marked improvement. Here's the kicker: she's going down the stairs like a pro, unassisted & safely paced for a couple of days now. Which has left us scratching our heads as to why she won't learn to go up. Any guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
