My dog is avoiding me

Recommended Posts

primetime49

I have been gone from home for 6 months and my 3 year old dog seems to remember me and I love the attention he gives me .

My 13 year old labrador is acting like I left him and does not want to be near me.I have given him all the attention any dog could have ever wanted but now he is acting like he never knew me.

What do I need to do to get him back,anyone else ever have this problem????

You didnt grow a beard while you were gone did you? I was gone for 10 days this fall elk hunting, left clean shaven and came home with a full beard. My dog barked and growled and wouldnt come near me, hid behind my mother! I shaved the beard and we were best friends again!!

If thats not the case I would try and get alone with her, bring some treats, her favorite toy and reconnect. DOgs think in weird ways sometimes.

I've seen a couple of cases where the dogs feel abandoned when you leave them for awhile. They act like little kids and they sulk when you get back. That wasn't the case when my oldest son got back from Afghanistan. Our three dogs were all over him like he had candy in all his pockets. He's been home quite a while and they still mob him when he comes to visit.

I know this is in a different direction, but do you think maybe he just is not feeling well? I know when my pooch is not feeling great or is sore from hunting he just wants to be left alone.

13 years old and just happy to lay around all the time

Hes feeling good and he really likes to take it easy

Last couple of evenings hes kinda showing all the emotion he can

I was just really woried that he would pass while I was gone and that would have been really hard

Thanks for responses

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
