do all breeds respond the same to stress?
i had changed my gating system in the kitchen for django 2 weeks ago and every time i would return, he had a stress poop in the pantry. i didin't think this was such a drastic change but every day, he'd poop, even if he pooped 2 hours prior. plus he would bark like crazy when i returned. new behavior.
i thought enough was enough and went back to the old gating system, and wouldn't you know it, no more poop! he's has also mastered the pee pee pads! right on target! well, the first one is, the second one is a hit or miss.
i'm amazed how sensative these guys are. the slightest change can be so stressful for them. is this just a hav trait or do you think other breeds resopond the same way. or is it the hav owner who is more sensative to this? i have friends who have small dogs and if they want to make a change, they make it regardless of how it affects the dog.
