    We moved house a few weeks ago & the move has really affected one of my dogs. She has access to all of the house now whereas in the old place they were only allowed downstairs, lovely new garden for them to play in etc. Anyway she has become a real hermit, I come home from work & she won't leave her bed to come see me, I let the dogs in the garden & she won't go out, in fact I have to actually pick her up & put her in the garden as she will not go out at any point which is odd as she was always first out in the old place. She would normally come & sit with us when we're all in the living room but now she keeps herself in her bed all evening we hardly see her at all.
    The biggest change is that out on walks she has started barking at other dogs which is really unusual for her, my other 2 are quite reactive but were working on it & Heidi has always been my good one so I'm gutted she's started behaving like this.
    I don't really know what to do for her as she's obviously not happy at the moment, she's lived in other places before for a few weeks & has been fine so its not like she hasn't done it before

    How old is she and could she be ill or in pain?

    She's 4, she's fairly lively when outside so not concerned that something is wrong with her
