My 4 year old black lab Buddy has started some unusual behavior, normally when he is let into the back yard to do his business he would let out a bark when he is done, now he sits in the middle of the yard as if he is cowering and will not come in on his own, i have to go out and physically bring him into the house but only during the day at night he will come in on his own. Need help figuring this out.
Is he seeing something during the day that is scaring him that isn't there or he can't see at night? Something in the pathway to your house, or a noise in your house during the day he doesn't like? Definately strange.
