We have had our dog for seven or eight years (adopted from the shelter) and she has always been a really good, easy going pup.
Lately she is acting very wierd and getting unmanageable. She keeps escaping and running away at every opportunity. Anytime someone tries to go out the front door, the dog practically knocks us over to escape. She is very friendly so a neighbor will bring her home after a while and then she'll turn around and bolt again the second one of the kids opens the door.
She also suddenly can't stand being left alone. She is started to cause damage in the house. She has always been fine alone for hours at a time and now she cries and chews on things when left alone for short amounts of time. We are debating crating her.
Any ideas? She was spayed when we got her so no issue there. She chooses to visit different people each time so it isn't like she has a particular friend. She seems very healthy and she isn't in any pain. She is eating and drinking well.
It is getting really frustrating.
