nowwown Posted December 18, 2008 Report Share Posted December 18, 2008 Cody is now 2-1/2. He spends 40-70% of his day at home by himself. The balance is with his humans, when we spend alot of time playing, ball throwing, walking, etc. Very little interaction with other dogs. I think as a result, he has become very uninterested in his previous "friends" -- other dogs that he sees in our neighborhood, whether he's on leash for a walk or running around a dead-end street area at the back end of our neighborhood. It usually starts out well, the other dog is very excited to see him, and Cody seems semi-interested; he is wagging his tail and friendly but aloof. They touch noses and smell each other, then Cody is ready to move on. And makes that very clear to all by laying down, facing away from the other dog. Even trying to excite him into a game of run-around or chase with the other dog is difficult. I recently changed his food from IVD Potato & Whitefish to Wellness Core Ocean. He's done great on it looks-wise and everything but could that apathy or disinterest stem from food change? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
