    Super new to the forum so not sure if I’m posting in right place and sorry if not! My little man - shih tzu 6 years young - has always been around my mum-in-law, we even lived with her the first year we had him and he’s always stayed there if we ever go away. It’s safe to say up until now he’s loved grandmas, runs to the car if we say we are going over! Until the last few visits, he has started pulling his tail, barking at nothing - like the wall or the just a random empty space in the room (normally quite a vocal pup but will bark directly at you if he wants something like a wee or a treat!) this barking is just at no one and nothing, also low growling and generally acting upset! If we take him for a walk or home he calms down instantly!! Hes also super happy to see mum in law and other family members when he arrives! He’s been to the vets and is physically fine and when at home is calm as ever! Anyone any ideas as to what could be upsetting him all of a sudden?! Thanks

    Could there be an appliance making a noise only he can hear that’s upsetting him?

    New smells/cleaners might affect him.

    Or something - mice maybe - in the walls or under the floor.
