why is the dog I'm babysitting freaking out whenever she is by a certain part of my bed?


ok so im babysitting my aunts dog, and she was on my bed walking around and started sniffing this part of my bed where there’s a pillow and a sweater. Then she like jumped back and got scared and didn’t go back there. then i picked her up and like took her by the place on my bed and she started getting scared so i took her away from there and started petting her and stuff. Why is she freaking out like this?

      there is obviously a scent in that part of the bed that she either does not like, or for some reason has a fear of.

      Either way, don’t force her to go the spot, but by the same token, when she does act afraid, don’t coddle her – by petting her, you’re telling her it’s okay to be afraid. Just leave her alone, if she wants to go to the spot, quietly tell her she a good girl. If she avoids it or acts afraid, don’t do anything. Just leave her be until she calms down, then pet her.

      Do you have animals? She may be picking up on an unfamiliar smell that she is afraid of. Some dogs get very skittish about being in new places with a lot of new smells.

      She must have caught a scent or a sense of something she didnt like! Smells can trigger bad memories for dogs maybe she had a tramtic experience or doesnt respond well to something with that scent. Good Luck!
