    Has he been to the vet to rule out pain? When did this behavior begin?

    Is this a recent thing?

    By "wont let anyone touch him" do you mean he's showing aggression? Shying away? Flipping around?

    I agree a vet is probably your first step here to rule out any pain.

    Has been to vet, started about 6 months ago, runs jumps plays with my other dog daily very friendly with the exception of touching, no indication of pain.
