Hello, I have a 6 year old miniature schnauzer that is now afraid to go outside. This started happening about 3 days ago. I have to force her to go out and when she is outside she hides in the dog house and peeks out to see if I am going to let her in. I moved the dog house so she could not hide in there so she found another place to hide. I went out with her this morning and she just sat by my side and would not move. I can't figure out what is going on. Any advice?

Any wild animal around? Do you have a fence?? Sounds like she is petrified does she sleep out there? Is she left alone outside by herself?

I guess she had a bad experience outside.

Talk to your neighbors and find out if there are any wild critters hanging around. Raccoons, opossums, coyotes. These animals are in urban areas, even Chicago.
