What have you tried so far?: continueing last question




Sally G. :

Since no one was there I would want the day care to answer these questions. Was it an open play time, were there any toys or food /treats around, whre there any new dogs in the area

JACUSTOMER-d4ghjn9- :

I believe she encountered a new undisciplined dog, which may have been disturbing to

Sally G. :

That would explain it.She is already an adult do and is used to the dogs that are with her, but if a new dog came in and got into her face that would make any dog feel uncertain and many dogs do not have dog etiquette

Sally G. :

so that would make sense for it to happen that way.

Sally G. :

Now my problem would also lie with the day care, why were the dogs not supervised properly if there was a new dog in the area

Sally G. :

That is a question I would want answered and I would want to know how they intend on handling this again when this dog comes

Sally G. :

Of course it could also be a health concern with your dog such as hypthyroidism as this will make a normally obedient dog turn slightly aggressive. has the thyroid been checked?

JACUSTOMER-d4ghjn9- :

No, have been checked by vet, but I could also look into this.

Sally G. :

I would do this to make sure she is healthy. It requires a blood test

JACUSTOMER-d4ghjn9- :

Ok, will do.

Sally G. :

I would also want to see the interaction between the new dog and your dog if possible

JACUSTOMER-d4ghjn9- :

Not going back, as my girl does'nt need to be put through this

Sally G. :

I can't blame you for that. But you will want to be sure her health is fine:)

JACUSTOMER-d4ghjn9- :

OK
