I'm looking for some advice really. My lab is not a deer dog, although she has been on a few stalks so hence why its not in the deer dog section.
Recently, i would say in the last month my 3yr old lab (full ped) has started behaving irrationally, for the last two years i've had her she has been (at night time) kenneled in our kitchen in a huge dog crate/wire cage where she has lived happily. We also have a Patterdale which is kennelled the same way on the other side of the room. No problem. But in the last month the lab has started to drawl, pant and wet her bed regular and whilst we were away at the weekend she bit through her kennel wire walls and escaped into the kitchen where she reeked havok.
She has never displayed this sort off behaviour before. So today i have been and bought another crate/kennel and she has tonight started to try to chew her way out again, so she has been turfed outside.
Now, she has always been kennelled, and spent most of her younger life in a lintran on the back of a pick-up learning from her mother picking-up and treated/kennelled well.
The only thing that has changed recently is her food where i put them on a bag of 'working dog' food, can this be the source of the behaviour? I have changed her back the old food as of today..
Thoughts please-bit worried about her?!
