Exclamation Weird behaviored dog

my dog is acting weird... she's always downstairs, and she hasnt gone down their for one year, she wont drink water unless its outside, she wont go in our kitchen even for table scraps (we have gotten new floors if that helps), she wont come in when we yell for her (she used to come in fist yell), she wont come to us when we ask her if she wants treats, she shakes constantly, like a vibrating dog (she used to shake some but only when scared), she jumped into my mom's car today and wouldnt come out we had to pick her up, she used to be a lap dog, but now she wont get close to us. she is a peeka-poo dog about 10 years old, a little dog, she is by herself, our old dog died a year ago. any help? what is wrong with her? what is the cure? HELP?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! ASAP if possible!

The only thing i can think of is that it could be the new floors have you gone from carpet maybe to laminate flooring ? some dogs get very freaked out by change .
It does sound like she is upset by something bless her
Any major changes in behaviour and i would have her checked out by your vet.
If it is a change to laminate flooring ? i would try putting some rugs down she can step on , maybe then she will feel more secure , i only say this as i had a simarliar prob with my last dog who wouldn,t step on lino or laminate flooring. hope this helps some.

Did it possibly occur to you to take your dog to the vet. We aren't vets and can't really give you the proper information.

I second Aslan's comment, take her to a vet, to eliminate possible medical problems.

If she clears the health bill, then it could be behavioural problem, my mom's dog also has a weird phobia of smooth floors, like laminated or tile...and if you put something on the floor, that he hasn't seen before - he freaks. Like a bright bag or something. He is also afraid of chewing gum, he runs away if I am chewing a gum, and only a gum, otherwise he is there begging. pups!

I agree that a vet check is definately in order! Is is possible that she is in pain as dogs often hide when they are in pain. My Lucy also went through a bit of a strange shaking phase when she was losing her hearing so that might be something. It sounds like the dog is quite freaked out right now (from pain or ?) and you really need to work to determine how to make her feel safe again. If it is the floors then perhaps a bunch of rugs will help until she feels more comfortable or you can also try some no slip dog booties if she is slipping and that is hurting or scaring her.

I have to agree with the others. The only person (people) that can properly address this may be a vet. If your pup gets a clean bill of health then we may be able to trouble shoot from there. For now, something does not sound right.

I wish her the best results.
