Dog Advice!!

I'm looking after the mother-in-laws dog whilst she is on holiday, he is an ex-rescue dog and is very nervous she has had him for 4 years but he is still very nervous, since she has had him he has never barked but whines a lot if left alone. Anyway tonight after looking after him for 3 days he just starts randomly yelping like he is in pain (he has never done this before) he is fed/watered/been for a walk..... Any ideas what could be wrong with him as I have no idea? Thanks

Look at his paws... maybe he got a splinter/grass seed in one whilst out for a walk?

You've broken the MIL's dog? As if she needs anymore reason to not like you ffs.

What type of dog is he? I have a Greyhound and she whimpers when we are not with her, they are known to suffer from seperation anxiety.

Do you have access to MinLaw's house? If so could you collect something. A towel from the bathroom is a good idea as will have scent on and the dog will like to curl into it. Or raid her linen basket and get a dirty top out as again will have her scent.

lol she will definitely blame me, only because she knows I dislike her :whistling:

I dont suppose the dog is originally from Slovenia?

Could just be he/she has developed into a house dog and is hearing things it dosent normally hear.

He is a springer spaniel very hyper but nervous at the same time if that makes sense, we have his bed with a jumper of the mil's in it lol

she has the soul of the mother-in-law and will do awful things to the house to spite you!

run your hands over the dog to see if it yelps when you touch any particular part of its body, if it doesn't react then it's probably just missing its mum !
#14
Try giving it a seriously long walk in the afternoon/evening, take a ball and keep on throwing it so the dog wears itself out and has less energy left and hopefully will just sleep when it gets home. Also a marow bone can wear out a dog if it has it for a few hours and give it a happy tummy.
#15
Right i think he has hurt his leg/foot I checked all of his feet so it must be his leg because he is laying in his dog bed and every time he tries to get up he yelps and lays back down... trip to the vets tomorrow if he's no better i think

If it's not this or you're gonna leave him on his own what i do with my dog is get a tennis ball and cut a slit in it then fill it full of treats. Keeps him occupied for hrs trying to figger how to get them out.
When you get home just take out any that are left in( my dog is hopeless at it so it's usually all off them lol) and give them as a treat.
