Guest RobinAZ Posted July 11, 2013 Share Posted July 11, 2013 I've had Layla for 3 years now and she was extremely shy and timid when I first got her. She's come a very long way, but the past few days she seems to be regressing. She's always gone between the couch in the living room and the bed as her "safe" spots. Now for some reason when she gets in the bedroom she's afraid to come out, to the point where she peed in there last night. I didn't catch her at it so didn't say anything to her, besides I don't want to make it worse. Tonight she kept peeking out the bedroom door and crying. I called her but she wouldn't come (that has never worked with her anyhow). So I went in there and she was on the bed cowering and whimpering. I comforted her for a while, then took her collar and made her walk out to the living room with me. She had her legs splayed and was trying so hard not to move. I got her out here and she's fine now, went out the dog door (she had to pee) and is now laying on the floor. I have no clue what has made her revert back to old behavior. The only thing different was I just watched my daughter's two dogs for a few days (one hound, one puggle) - but they are over here a lot and Layla knows them. Any suggestions would be helpful. I hate to see her so scared. One other interesting fact about her. She's highly intelligent. More so than my other hound. Also, she notices any time something has changed, like a throw rug moved or any little thing like that and it throws her off for a few days. She reminds me in a way of an autistic child and some of the ways to work with children work with her. However I'm stumped on this whole bedroom issue.
