he could be going deaf or could be worse he could be getting lame or his legs could be playing him up and just not want to move i would take him to the vets for a checkup explain your concerns to them and see what they reccomend

The way I checked our last Husky, Elke, when I thought she was going deaf, was to put my head behind hers, and say her name real loud. She did not flintch. I tried several times. Nothing. I then had her checked at the vet, and he confirmed. Of course, Elke was 13+ years at the time. So it was simply old age.

awww, just test him...

it could be that he's going deaf, or like Andy said he may be getting a bit stiff and not want to move everytime you come home?

Hugs to Bings xx

I think he could be going deaf but a cheek up at the vet would confirm that. If not the case the vet could do tests to find out whats up.

I wouldn't say he's going deaf >>> mainly 'cos i dont want to be negative. Hes older now so his hearing is probably just gotton worse as thats what age does to you, if he can still hear loud noises thats fine. Hes still playing with Blaze so he has his legs and sounds healthy, i think its just one of the inevitable truths that comes with ageing, with animals and humans alike. My friend has a 10 year old GSD (pretty old for a GSD too! The life expectancy is only 10 years plus she is KC) and her hearing has gotton a bit muffled, her back legs are a little weaker >>> but this doesn't stop her climbing the stairs at night to go to bed >>>> I think Bing sounds fine. However if it does get worse over the weeks then he may actually be going deaf, but if he stays how he is now i think his hearing is just affected rather than deaf. If this does happen a trip to the vets may be needed to confirm it.
