As of a few days ago, my dog Nook is afraid to walk down the hallway. She will only sit at the end of the hall and cry, which is a heartbreaking sound. :(
I have tried everything I can think of to coax her down the hall. She won't budge for treats or even a big bowl of food, whether I place it in the middle of the hall or just a foot away from her.
I could carry her down the hall, but she is afraid of being carried, so that would only add more fear to the situation.
I have no idea why she suddenly became so terrified or what it is that scares her. The only noises in the hallway are the washer and dryer in the laundry closet and the water running in the bathroom, but she had not shown any fear of those sounds before.
It's baffling! And I wonder what happened in her past that made her so fearful of everything. :(
