LOL. Whatever. you are both happy conjecturing what happened in my mind through my post.
I was observant and what alerted me was that it was not
his usual behavior. As far as fear goes that would be the egg and chicken situation and is still not the ideal relationship with one's dog.
Thankfully the trainer was kind enough to come over again and it is now established that he was resource guarding as well as being exhausted. I took him out to pee and he did and plopped down in the grass totally uninterested in the normal night life he usually takes great pleasure chasing.
