Lovely 4 year old female basset becoming grumpy with puppies

by Deborah
(Toronto)

I have a wonderful 4 year old female basset hound (she's spayed). She loves people and used to love other dogs. However, over the past couple of months she's gotten very "grumpy" with younger dogs at the park. She doesn't growl or snarl but barks really loudly and meanly at them. She was well socialized and used to love meeting other dogs! Any tips??
thanks very much for your ideas

Any new health issues...

Does your Basset Hound have any new health issues? Sometimes a health issue can cause behavior changes. Here's a good article that describes the connection between behavior and health:

Maybe have a vet check her out. Hope this helps.

That must be hard for the dog sitter, maybe increase they're pay, just a thought.
