My 1 year old male chin has a sudden change in behavior and it seems to be ever since the clocks were changed. He seems a lot more fearful and he is hiding a lot more. Everything else is normal however. He just seems extra skittish.

I was wondering if the change in time could be confusing him. He was a baby this time last year and he was still getting used to a routine. Anybody else have similar experiences with chins? It's the only thing I can think of that could be bothering him.

I don't think it would be affecting him. I've got 200 chins here and they pay no attention to it. You never know though, chins are weird.

Mine has definitely been a bit annoyed that I am doing things at a different time and it's confusing her schedule (my chin has a very predictable schedule, it's really funny how punctual she is most days).

Normally I wake up, interact with her for a bit, then she eats and goes to sleep. Now she's not ready for either of those things when I wake up, but I can't shift my morning schedule because of work.

She's acting fairly normal overall, just seems confused/annoyed that I decided to do things at a different time.

Because our play times are scheduled at 6 am (when the people wake up) and then again at 7 pm (after our dinner time), my girls notice the time change and they do not like it. Sometimes it takes weeks before they adjust completely. I try to ease them into it and start going 15 min earlier or later, depending on the time change, for a week before but that doesn't seem to make much difference.

If you don't have a set schedule, I guess your chins might not care? Since our schedule is very regular, its quite noticeable when the clocks spring forward or fall back.
