do dogs have autism? or what could this be?
hi i own a female golden retriever she is now 2years old and have started to notice when he behavior has changed since she was one years old. All of my children and husband have autism and our dog (kiara) is very very close to my middle child who has autism and depression. But am worried about Kara's behavior its very strange for me to be saying this but she seems to have autism or something like it?? she has been so attached to my daughter and if she isnt home she doesn't eat she just sooks, and also she hates change if something changes she goes and sooks in my daughter room or she goes wild like jump on things and barks angrily. She also doesn't want to be hugged or pat most times. and she wont even let us pat her head or cuddle at her neck only her butt very weird. She hates new people or animals that come into the house she would bark very meanly but then she calms down and if someone tries to pat her she just backs away and walks off. She also loves routines and if its not the same she would be in a very crazy mood all day and night. What do you think is wrong with her? we have had many trainers come to the house and they end up quitting becuase she is too hard we love her so much and i feel so sorry that people just give up on her so if anyone her can try to understand her that would be great. Just want to give her help or advice if possible thank you
