Over the past few weeks Phoebe has become totally skittish. She runs from the sound of foil being torn, pots and pans coming out of drawers or any somewhat louder noise. She will no longer go into the laundry room at night when it is bedtime even with enticing treats and lots of cajoling, she barks at the least noise or movement. She appears as a dog that has been hit or threatened--this has not happened that I am aware of. I try to be reassuring and calming but she does not seem to trust even me. If someone has scared or threatened her I am totally unaware and cannot imagine anyone I know doing that but then.... I am at a loss as to how to get her trust back again and get her over this period. Suggestions would be great appreciated. It hurts me to see her so anxious and nervous and I really want her to relax and return to her old happy self. Poor girl.
