haleigh Posted February 27, 2009 Report Share Posted February 27, 2009 I had my private lesson with Amanda Nelson a couple weeks back. She said that yeah, Joy and I have a bond, but not a working bond. So, it's only me doing the feeding, playing...etc., I hand feed her, and I provide EVERYTHING for her. Her agility lesson a week ago was a little more than stellar. She only ran off for 5 minutes, but when she came back, she didn't do her random jumping crap. A few days ago (monday, maybe??) she started this weird thing at home. Joy's been barking nonstop. Yeah, 'typical' border collie stuff. But I mean nonstop. She will wakeup and just start her high pitched panic bark. If I leave her alone for five minutes, she starts barking. She also chases the walls. If I'm playing with her, she'll stop bringing it to me half way and run full force to the nearest wall and start scanning the base like theirs gold or something. Even if we're cuddling she'll do this. Before training last night, I ran out of Joy's anxiety drops, and it was raining. I thought Joy would be iffy because of the rain, but she was fine. I was able to get a solid 15 minutes in with Joy actually listening, before she glazed over and started chasing the wall. We called it quits, and tried getting Joy over for treats and toys. She only came back for a whole 2 minutes out of a half hour. Most dogs with OCD things would think this gets boring after a while, but not Joy. If she's not starting to get back into her normal self by next week, I'm taking her to the vet. I was thinking we should get a CBC or an eye exam.
