    DefaultWon't run

    This afternoon when I took my dog for a walk everything was fine. When we got home and I took his leash off to let him run he darted off like he usually does and he whimpered when he did it. He stoped and tried again and whimpered again and then he wouldn't run. He has been sort all night no. Walks fine. Gets up and down fine. But he won't run, if I squeeze his two sides together (by his tail) he whimpers. He doesn't want to climb the stairs. He has never until this afternoon displayed this behavior. Could he have slept on it wrong? He is resting right now. I tried to massage his legs and he was fine with that but if I squeeze both of them he doesn't want me to touch him. Even yesterday I had him sit pretty for a treat and no problem. Today now he won't do it. I feel bad for him.

    I would get him checked out by a vet, maybe get some x-rays done, just to check for dysplasia. I believe it's pretty common for them to be bothered by some things and not others, and that it can vary from dog to dog.

    Hope he's OK.

    Rest him for a few days. No walks, no exercise, nothing. If it doesn't improve after a few days rest, book him into the vets.

    Not sure what it could be but I would get him into the vet to have him checked out. A few days total rest wouldn't be a bad idea first just to make sure it's not something small.

    Thanks for the replies. I decided to rest him and he is getting better. I don't know what he actually did but he is getting better so that is all that counts.

    Good to hear hopefully it was just a sprain and will heal on it's own with rest.
