Any ideas on what causes mood changes in puppies?

My puppy is about 6 months old and has some of the gone through a phase where he refuses to leave the downstairs, before he would always come up to my bedroom on the top floor and just bask in the sun while I worked. For some reason now he is always sitting in our TV room. he also has started becoming very scared of noises that never frightened him before. He's a hound retriever mix.

I believe he might be going through a growth spurt based on online sources, but one other thing that's strange is he has stopped devouring his kibble, and now takes his sweet time when eating it. Any ideas?

I think part of it might be this extreme cold we're having in the New England area, he hasn't had his usual exercise.

Thanks for the reply, is it normal for him to have gone through the fear phase, be totally fine and then re-enter the fear phase? He's right at the 7.5 month Mark actually.

He also seems to have no fear outside it's purely inside. We have a multi-level home and really only hang out in the downstairs TV room area at night.

One of the household members recently left for college and I think that's a big part of it but I want to get him over it.

I put a food trail up to my upstairs room and he refused to follow which was very bizarre as he's very food driven. Thanks for the detailed response

I am a former heavy smoker cannabis only. I quit mostly six months ago and now only stick with edibles and vapes yet after no smoking joints or vaping for a few weeks I ate an edible for past couple days and have gotten a horrible smokers cough. Is it possible that thc triggers my coughing?
