my jack russell hides under my bed

My Jack Russell is 5 years old and has always had anxiety, but lately he has been hiding under my bed like he is scared when we are home. He has never done this. If I am in my room he lays on the bed very near me but refuses to leave the bedroom. Please help!

anxiety

Well he is acting normal otherwise, he still eats good. If he has a bone in the living room or something he comes running out to get it but then runs right back under the bed to chew on it. He has always had a ton of anxiety but this seems odd to me.

To me, this type of behavior change can sometime indicate that there might be a physical problem going on beyond the anxiety. I would take your Jack to the vet to get a full workup (blood, fecal, etc) to make sure there is nothing going on that the eye can't see.
