The Dog Aging Project has published an authoritative, comprehensive article just for senior dog owners: "Understanding Behavioral Changes in Senior Dogs." It discusses:
- Why do we see behavioral changes in senior dogs?
- What behavioral changes should I look for in my senior dog?
- What should I do if I see behavioral changes in my older dog?
The article offers a good overview of DISHA, a broad classification of behaviors that may be related to cognitive dysfunction, which is commonly seen in senior dogs.
