Just a quick question. I set off the smoke alarms this morning (stupid bluddy toast!) and Batty freaked! But instead of running to the living room or my bedroom (opposite end of the house to the alarms where it's far more quiet) he bolted straight for me and hid behind me burying his head in between my feet and ankles.
I'm still kind of formulating what I want to say, but this is normal isn't it? For a dog to seek his owner rather than run and hide in fear? Or is it weird and should I be looking for other things that may be of concern too?
The ACD down home (with my dad) does the something similar, if he's scared he'll seek out my dad or me and sit next to us (at heel) and growl at whatever is scaring him.
It struck me as odd. It's the first time the smoke alarms have gone off while Batty's been here (not the first time I've set them off though ) and it's probably the most extreme reaction I've seen from him to anything.
On a side note, what're other peoples dogs reactions to things like smoke alarms, sirens etc?
