I have a 2 yr old male chesapeake, as a pup he had BAD entropian with his right eye and left eye not as bad. Had surgery done which fixed the problem, but must have hurt like hell during recovery even with pain meds. He is very head shy you reach down to pet him he closes his eyes and ducks his head like he has been beat. ( never beat him )
He will retrieve his bumpers but when you go to take them from him, he shuts his eyes ducks and spits the bumper out sometimes. You look him in the eyes he closes them! Heres the problem, take him pheasant hunting he will not hunt, take him duck or goose hunting birds fall he stands there and looks at you. Try and get him excited with the birds, he has no intrest in them. He likes pigeons.
Do I send him off to a pet home, or force fetch him? I dont know if that would work since he already has issuse with his "head". He is a very sensitive dog.
What are some suggestions?
