I am new to this forum and want to get some comment on some curious puppy behaviour. Two weeks ago I bought home a Terrier C from the Lost Dogs Home. Ollie is a lovely little fellow - quite a character, approx 12 months old. He even seems to be housetrained He was a little timid at first but seems to have settled in nicely - well you would if you were spoilt like he is
Anyway yesterday we went back to the Dogs Home to the Vet - you see we came home with Kennel Cough! In the car he was a real villian, wouldnt settle and tried very hard to chew off his harness, which I later realised was on back to front . Any way we get into the vet (very cute, the vet that is!) and Ollie has a complete meltdown, starts shaking - won't even relax for the vet to make him cough etc.
A treat for the ride home calmed him considerably but later that night he walks to his doggy door, looks at it, turns around and walks straight over to the wall and lifted his leg! Not a spray but a full on wee. To anyone else this may be funny, NOT ME! The little monkey did it again this morning.
I am thinking maybe stress from the vet visit - anyone else got any thoughts?
Thank you V.
