lp! I have an 8 year old Bassett which is a rescue dog and never had issues for nearly a year until recently.
At night she refuses to come. And go to bed from outside. she understands the command and hasnt disobeyed before. She doesn't respond to treats, toys or praise. I have even left her in the garden for 2 hours. She is clearly terrified of bed but for no apparent reason. Her bed is never used as a form of punishment ironically outside is. She has never slept with us and has always had the same routine outside, then bed and was such an angel for knowing that.
I've tried everythinga and nothing works even tried with a lead and I have to drag her in.
Please help cause even I'm starting to hate bed time now because it takes hours to put my dog to bed!
