This happens to my dog all the time. I find that she rolls in a heap of poop all the time. It is messy and there are no rules as to what it is. She can’t have anything and she doesn’t want to go to the bathroom. I think this is because she has been taught to expect that behavior. We don’t teach our dogs to avoid anything.
My dog is not rolling in poop. She has not rolled in poop for at least five years now. She has also never fallen off her perch in the grass. She has not been hit by a car. She has never been bitten by a dog. She has never been hit by a cat or a bird. She has never been hit by a truck. She has not been run over by a bus. She has not been hit by a car.
I think you have an unusually low dog. She may just be a shy hound, but she has been trained to be observant, pick up on clues, respond to other dogs, and roll in the poop. I guess you never realized that she had never rolled in poop until you stopped talking to her.
My dog rolls in poop because she’s a dog who likes to watch and listen to other dogs, and she likes to chew the poop. But the fact that she has never been hit by a car or bitten by a cat or a bird, let alone been run over by a bus, or hit by a car, makes her a dog who isn’t a dog. A dog is someone who behaves in a manner consistent with what she knows, and the behavior is not necessarily what she feels like.
In the real world, most dogs roll in poop because they get confused because they are confused. They do not know what they are doing, and they do not know what they are scared of. That said, dogs roll in poop for a multitude of reasons. It is not just the fact that they are confused, it is the fact that they are afraid. It is not just the fact that they are confused, it is the fact that they are scared.
The thing to remember is that you can’t tell what your dog has learned about what she is supposed to do just by looking at her. It’s the same thing with your dog rolling in poop. It is not that she is confused, it is the fact that she is scared. It is not just the fact that she is confused, it is the fact that she is scared. It is not just the fact that she is confused, it is the fact that she is scared.
We are not just dealing with a dog that is confused, we are dealing with a dog who is scared. We are dealing with a dog that is afraid. The dog rolls in poop.
There is a very real possibility that this is a dog that has just been traumatized. A dog who has just gone through an emotional upheaval and just suddenly panicked as it realized it is not alone. A dog with a major trauma? Most likely. A big-ass dog who is confused and scared and unable to be around other dogs? I wouldn’t be surprised.
When you’re dealing with a dog who is traumatized, you have to be very cautious. But you also have to be very patient. Because the trick is to be patient with the dog even though you’re not sure what’s going on. And to be patient, you have to be willing to take a leap of faith. You have to believe that all will be well.
It seems like most vets see this sort of thing, but it is actually very uncommon, even in the best of circumstances. I know because they see it all the time. My vet was actually at home, but I was out sick on vacation (not in a coma, just not feeling well) so I was still in a semi-recovery state. I was still in the process of getting my dog better so I could finally take her to the vet to be seen.
