I have a 16 year old rat terrier diagnosed with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction. I wrote an article that shares some tips on living with and helping a dog with dementia and includes photos and a video showing some of the typical behaviors. I hope it helps somebody.

Coco also has CCD, reduced hearing and vision and congestive heart failure. She is 15 years old. I could subsitute Coco's name for Crickets and the story of dementia would be identical. Funny how they have the exact same behaviours. Trying to go out the door on the hinged side was the very first thing I noticed.

I enjoyed your video and text. Thank you for sharing Cricket's story. She's a doll!
