Hello. I have 2 years old labrador. My dog is very friendly to people and other animals, but recently she started barking in some situations, for example when we go for a walk to places where we are alone and suddenly someone appears... it happens also in evening when is dark. She barks at this person or thing that she think is dangerous but she's waging her tail at the same time, slowly coming to that person. It happens only sometimes, but I'm worried, it started to change about six months ago. She passed first tests as therapy dog, but now when she started to act like this I'm afraid that she don't pass the exam. What could be reason of that? Thanks for any help smile
