    Jaspar has become sometimes fearful now of certain places -- roads we do not know well, near the light rail tracks for example (he is fearless off or on lead in a park though or anywhere he knows well). This out of the blue as well -- my guess is that it is associated with his increasing deafness in some way.

    So I also echo that it is worth checking physical possibilities first with a vet.

    I know my CPDT certified trainer friends would say to get a very thorough vet check and consider too the possibilty of pain (could a harness be rubbing? Disk pain? SM pain? Anything that would make a walk now an unpleasant experience?). Maybe mild dementia starting so confusion is causing fear?

    These can be really hard source problems to identify. I hope it is something you can pinpoint that isn't very stressful or serious and address easily.

    Thankyou all for your replies and help.
    Had Holly to the vet and suspects that her eye sight is failing.
    We have been referred to a specialist and should receive appointment
    within 10 days.

    My vet gave her a thorough check, no heart murmur, and does not
    feel it is pain related.
    At least we know what we are dealing with if it is her eye sight.

    Thankyou again.

    Oh no; it's hard to get that message back from your vet but on the other hand, also must be a bit of a relief to have some idea of what to start with in your search for a reason for what is going on. Let us now what you hear back -- I hope it isn't anything that will change quickly.

    I'm sure that was diffucult to hear, but at least now you have a starting point. It was also good to hear that she has no heart murmur or pain. Good luck and let us know how she's getting along.

    Sorry to hear this Nanette,
    I know you'll leave no stone unturned to get to the bottom of this.
    Poor Holly must be feeling so confused.
    Hope you have the answers very soon.

    Hi Nanette,
    I hope the eye problems won't be too serious, and that Holly will start to feel confident again soon. Thank goodness it's not a pain issue.
    Best of luck with the opthalmologist.
