Need some help / advice here.
Since 3 days ago, when I came home, I find my house dirtier than usual and because my kitchen tiles are black, it is very visible and the dining area floor is alot stickier. Initially I thought Hapi played with water while we were out.
The following day, same thing. And on closer look and thoughts, it should be his saliva and he has been stepping on his saliva all over the house. And I had problems coming out of the house as he tries to squeeze through my main door to get through the gate and runs off. But he will be waiting for me at the elevator area.
Today, I realised he starts to pant abit harder and salivates/drool more and pace up and down the main door, when he realised I am about to change to leave the house for work. I have decided to do a simple exercise.
I went in and out of the house. Lock up the house and walk off and back. For the first two times, he tried to get out of the house again until I firmly said "No, inside the house" and hit him slightly at the head.
Subsequently, he will take a step back and let me out of the house. Each time i return, I will find drool in the kitchen, dining and the main door area. I will sit at my dining and pretend to read the papers each time I "come home". He will stand at the main door and look out and drool.
In addition, he barked ONCE at nothing outside, and I corrected him immediately.
I really dont know what to do because I think he might be slowly developing anxiety issues. He has never been like this until 3 days ago when my husband was not working and not wearing his work attire and took me to work. He is coming to 2 this August and he is a neutered male.
Nothing changes in the morning. I take him to relieve himself, do his basic obedience training every morning before I go to work.
Any advice, help?
