How much exercise and mental stimulation does he get?

A tired dog is a happy dog! Can you take him to a dog park so he can run out his energy or play mental games with him like hide and seek to tire him out?

If he is getting enough mental and physical stimulation I might take him to the vet and get him checked out as he is older and something could be bothering him.

Damn.  WB ate my post.  Let’s try again.

My first thought is a medical condition since the change was so abrupt and he’s a senior but it’s hard to say.  Has anything with his routine changed?  The fact that it’s only directed at you is interesting though.  Has anything changed with your IF treatments?  Dogs can be sensitive to medical conditions in humans.

I agree work him out a little more and see if that helps.

I would bring him to the vet just as a precaution, but also before you start work in the morning take him out for a walk or to play. I know if I ever work from home, my girls cry because they think I am there to entertain them so I have to make them tired at first. And because of the fact that he sleeps and is content when he doesn’t see that your home, it really may be just boredom.

I don’t really know what to say, but my first thought is that he’s being bratty with you for some reason. Is your Darling Husband his ‘favorite’ between the two of you? If you know there are no real health issues and all of his regular needs are being satisfied, I feel like it’s most likely behavioral. Dogs usually identify a ‘pack leader’ and are best behaved for that person. That might be your Darling Husband and maybe your dog is trying to bully you or something.

As long as he’s healthy, I would try disciplining him when he does this or completely ignoring it. He needs to learn that he either gets in trouble when he acts up like that or he doesn’t get the attention he’s seeking.

awwww I know it probably annoys you after a while but it sounds so cute!!!  Have you gotten him a new toy lately?  Maybe he’s trying to tell you something about you…animals can sense health issues sometimes.

13 is getting up there in dog years. I’d be worried there might be something bothering him 🙁 Maybe have a vet  check him out just to be sure?
