I wanna ask I guess it is a question Our Little Dog Zoey our Jack Russel who is 7yrs old she keeps trying to find Places to hide even when nothing is going on.

She did not do this before she started doing it back when we got back From Arlington Texas we were only gone for 2 days we went in May and she has been doing it since she is fixed.

She usually stays with My Mom and I whereever we are at we have no Idea why she is doing this now or why she is doing it
she usually only does it when it is Thundering and Raining Outside.

Hi Rebelheart,

Your best bet is to take your dog to a veterinarian and have her checked out--at that age, she could have any number of issues that might cause her to behave the way she is. Sometimes animals hide when they're in pain. Or, it could be a behavioral issue. I'm not a vet and I can't say, and I'm not sure any vet could give a proper diagnosis without actually seeing her in person and giving her an exam.

If your dog turns out to be healthy after a vet exam, there are a number of homeopathic remedies for her anxiety, one of which is a Thundershirt:

Thundershirt | The Best Dog Anxiety Treatment

I have a very anxious dog who I've been working with to overcome his anxiety, and the shirt does help him to feel a bit more secure. I've heard good testimonials from others as well, and if you purchase via Ebay or Amazon, etc, you may find one at a much lower price than retail.

And of course there is always a behaviorist, who may be able to help you with techniques to help her feel more secure again.

Best of luck :)

It concerns me that your dogs can't see a vet... Do they get rabies vaccines, or any other preventative health care? What happens if they get hurt or get sick? It could be very dangerous for both them and for your family otherwise. :/

Depending on where you live, rabies shots are mandatory. If your dog ever bites someone and doesn't have a rabies shot record, then the animal will have to be killed and your family will get into huge trouble.

Not letting your animals go to the vet is the same as not letting your kids go to see a doctor. If you care about your animals, you need to have a serious talk with your father about it. If it's because you can't afford it, then you shouldn't be having pets in the first place.
