DECODED: WHY DO DOG's STARE AT WALL?


This is a serious problem which need’s Solution to CURE

Find out if your DOG has any syndrome listed below.

Some of the possible reasons why a DOG stares at a wall include: 







1) IF A SPIDER IS INSIGHT

  • DOG's don’t have fear of arachnophobia (fear of spider’s) and they find it exciting to chase spiders – especially when they move faster than the human eye can compete.

  • The neighbours are making disturbing noise (bang bang).

  • If your neighbours are moving furniture, partying hard, or arguing and raising their voices or throwing stuff at the wall which your DOG hears for the FIRST time then, your DOG’s attention is totally grabbed at the wall.

2) YOU NEED AN OBSERVER
 

  • If your DOG can sense rats, squirrels, termites or anything else moving within the walls, they’ll be determined to keep an eye on things and will constantly stare to track them out.

3) THEY’RE GETTING OLDER

  • Sadly, but TRUE DOG’s suffer from “DEMENTIA and SENILITY” just like humans do. As they grow older, they may start showing some strange behaviours including staring into the middle distance, not responding to you, inactive etc.

4) THEY’RE SICK

  • There are health concerns that is bothering them related to your DOG staring into space.

  • They want to get your attention so they do.

  • If your DOG is prone to staring and you go out of their way by not greeting them or not taking them for a walk, they’ll do it again and again.

5) DISORIENTATION
  • Your DOG is struggling to remember where is his water bowl or bed is, struggle to negotiate particular corners or feats of dexterity such as jumping on or off the sofa and doing some odd stuff which he didn’t do before

  • If your DOG is losing their sight it is the main reason that they will stare at a wall possibly as they are attempting to focus their other senses to accommodate their declining vision.
7) COMPULSIVE BEHAVIOUR
  • DOG’s can develop Obsessive Creative Disorder (OCD). Staring wall may become something that simply must do, and you’ll need to coach them out of using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
8) DEPRESSION

  • DOG’s can also suffer from depression and the symptoms which are similar to those of a human called as complete disinterest in engaging with anything that previously brought them joy.

5) A COMPULSIVE DISORDER

These DOGs will chase out their own shadows or lights, some others will repetitively lick and some others may chase their tails.
