My dog suddenly is terrified to come into our bedroom. She always just runs right in and uses the rug to jump onto the bed (We've got polished concrete floors).
Suddenly, yesterday - and for no apparent reason, she freezes at the door way. Looks terribly scared and will not come in no matter how much the girlfriend and I try to call her.
So, I did what any dog owner would do - I got dog treats and tried to lure her into the room with them. She was going nuts all the way from the kitchen to the bedroom door but then froze and would NOT enter despite dog treats.
After 3 minutes of pleading with her - she turned to her left, scurried down the wall (along the t.v. stand), turned right at the wall with the windows on it, then scurried over to the bed and jumped up from the opposite corner - a much longer route - and she was terrified the whole time. I again note that she has to use the rug ot jump onto the bed since the floors give her no traction.
Here's a little map of the room to outline what I just described:
Let me know if any of that doesn't make sense.
I'm not saying there's ghosts or anything like that - but I'm completely baffled as to why she would all of the sudden be terrified to enter the room. She has no problem leaving the room and is fine and wants to stay and hang out once she makes it to the bed.
Here's a picture:
It's only the older one (the black one - Emerson) - the puppy (Dante) is completely fine and normal and will go anywhere without freaking out.
Anyone's pets ever do anything weird like that? If she's still doing it in a day or two I'm thinking of calling the vet - but I have no idea what they'd possibly say beyond telling me to call the ghostbusters...
