Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Husky behavioral change   Thu Feb 05, 2015 12:28 am

I have what I think is a Husky/greyhound mix. We got him last October. He was doing ok (well sort of he was a bit high strung) until after we came back from being away at Christmas. He had a good dogsitter stay (and she had stayed before) and I had his trainer come by twice in the week we were gone, so I don't think it was that. He was actually ok until after new years when the fireworks were going off all night. He was a wreck.

Not long after I tried to brush him, and he started snarling at me. I got a new soft brush and he wont even let me use that. He now growls whenever we pet his body, and sometimes even when we pet his face, even if he seems to be asking to be petted. At the same time he also went off his food. He used to scarf it up, then he went to not eating, and now he eats some, but not the same way he used to eat. I used to take him to the dog park all the time, the last two times he got very aggressive growling and so now I can't even do that.

I went to the vet and she checked his teeth and bloodwork, she is at a loss and put him on Prozac and xanex. We try to use the xanex sparingly. He is been on Prozac for about 3 weeks and doesn't seem much different. he trainer suggested we train him when he gets anxious, which helps some. We also got him a cage, which he wont go in, and a thundervest, which he wont go near.

Anybody have any ideas?
