I have a 3 1/2 year old dog, poodle/bichon mix. During our walk today he behaved really strange. After about 30 min walk, I saw that he started slowing down and kind of looking at me. After 5 min....he started barking at a big sign....his tail went down. After additional 3 min or so, his tail went down completely, he walked fast.. had his head down and sniffing the road as he did not see properly, not sure. Hi was scared for about 10 min after his behavior started...tail down, looking up at all directions (almost like when you are scared and look over your shoulder all the time...looking around you). He then kind of recovered from this...we drove home. When he came home he was normal...playing...no sign of what happened. The behavior was bizzare. What could it be? Neurological?
