My dog just stands & stares at me in the evening from across the living room.
Regarding Buddy, my 3yr neutered male Pyrenees mix rescue (adopted him at 2).
These days morning & daytime, no issues. We have a good person/alpha-to-dog relationship including walks and "tug-o-war" play-times. He is not food aggressive. At night though, he keeps his distance from across the room and just stands & stares at me without emotion. He sometimes shifts his weight around but continues just to stand there. He absolutely will not come if called to join me on the couch (he is allowed; & I use only a friendly voice). Treats work but it usually doesn't last long unless he is very tired.
Anyone else experience this? ..or have any suggestions what, if anything to do about it?
There was possible abuse in his past. He had a wound that was stitched up/healed by the Humane Society. And he has a very odd fear of water, drinking water. Until he is very very thirsty, he will stay clear of any size shape or type of water bowl, even if it is next to his food bowl. (that fear whatever it is, is gradually going away.) He would rather lick wet cement nearby. ...He's an odd one.
