Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
The unit is only about 6-7 years old.
If the motor itself is slowing down, that is one thing. However, if you mean by "dog" that there is what sounds as if a gear is slipping then the solution is straight forward. The worm (follower) gear needs to be replaced.
There are videos on the net which show how to do this and the Service Manual can be found at:

It sounds likme you may have stripped/broken one of the gears up in the mixer head. Any competent appliance repair shop should be able to fix it.

The k-aid stand mixers do have a tendency to seep oil.
That oil started out as grease but has separated and is probably coming out from around the beater shaft.
Usually just wiping shaft off with a paper towel right before using is sufficient.
Also -the more frequently the mixer is used, the less likely the tendency of the grease to separate.

Some of the gears may have broken or slipped off. You'll need t open it up to see why the shaft from the motor will not spin or you will burn out the motor with the power on trying to make it go. It might be a DIY job if you can see an obvious problem like a slipped gear, otherwise take it to a repair specialist.

Your mixer is easily able to handle the kneading of bread dough. Please advise:
9 cups of all purpose white flour, maximum.
6 cups of specialty flour, maximum. This is any flour besides all purpose white.
Bread doughs are only to be needed on speed 2, and never for longer than 7 minutes.
This is all stated in the Use and Care guide for the mixer itself. If these guidelines are not followed, it may lead to a product failure.
