Question, dog behavior
I have a 2 year old dog that I just got and have been hunting for a few weeks now. He had been up for a couple months and I've been trying to knock the rust off for the last couple of weeks. He's been doing better. Normal issues, beating around on a track too much occasionally, but ends up with the meat and has generally looked pretty good.
Last night on my first drop he took off like a rocket, got off to about 500 yards and opened up, ran it around for another 10 minutes or so, then my tracking system just showed him stop moving, he wasn't treeing, he wasn't barking anymore. I thought his tracking collar might have actually fallen off. I waited a few more minutes and walked in to him. When I got to him he was just standing frozen with his tail sort of tucked, looked like a statue. I was very confused and ended up walking him back to the truck. Went up the road a bit and cast him again. He took off great, beat around on a track for longer than I wanted but eventually treed and had the coon.
My question is what could have made him lock up like that? He didn't seem to be hurt or anything. Almost seemed scared, any ideas?
