    Default Fence Barking...Valuable Lesson Learnt By All

    Well the boy made his great escape out to my sisters backyard. He's not usually allowed out there unless well supervised due to his need to eat things that upset his gut. So anyway he's out there very excited and doing zoomies and ect...I'm thinking the dogs next next door have sensed his hyper-ness as they can't see through the fence.

    Not so one or two pailings are pushed in a big husky gives a few barks. The boy goes too close to the husky's head and next second he is pulled into the big dogs yard...Pailings back in place and Maxi gone to the darkside...I think the saving grace was that Maxi played dead but did let out a few squeals...

    fence to high to jump so I'm around the neighbours place as quick as a flash... Got there an Maxi is laying quietly two dogs standing growling over him (husky and GSD). Dogs got shooed away I picked the boy up. In hind sight probably not the best move, as the Husky wasn't happy I did this but had the good sense to back off...Not so my silly boy he decided he was safe and decided to growl and wanted to get down and go again... Bloody small dog syndrome...

    Any rate no puncture wounds Just shook up by the experience...And really sooky just wanted cuddles for the rest of the afternoon... Neighbour popped around to make sure everything was right and to let us know that they were going to secure the fence so it doesn't happen again...She said that her dogs weren't socialised I explained that my boy didn't help because he was that bit to excited as well.

    So fence barkers take heed of this... As it all happened within a blink of an eye, and could have been a very bad outcome for one excitable puppy.

    We are off to dog school tonight, hopefully we will learn some dog etiquette. I think the fence incident has left a lingering memory. "That barking at a fence does not end well!!" The boy is no longer interested in what's behind the fence.

    Hoping this memory sticks, and he always remembers to give off calming signals not those come and get me ones

    Far out...reminds me of the last scene of 'Nightmare on Elm street 1' where Freddy Krueger reaches out and rips mum in through the hole in the door.

    Glad to hear your little fella didnt get mauled. A close call indeed........LOL at the little dog syndrome..."My mums here now, you guys are in SOOOOO much trouble !"

    Yep that was what I recon he was thinking Sean...Never mind the fact that mum was only standing due to pure adrenalin, the little poop!


    on a good note... Doggy school was great no lingering fear of big dogs from our ordeal...Plus we got a complement from the instructor "it was the best I have seen him in class!"


    Go the Halti...Best ever walking and doggy school session no more pulling YAY YAY and YAY... Please let this continue... Maxi's little red wagon was pulled up tonight...As we have been trying everything since puppy school to stop his pulling. From stopping, turning and walking in the opposite direction, food rewards, walking around furniture to a training check chain...He just thought as soon as his lead went on it was a free-for-all no listening required.


    So very happy...Maxi not so much still getting used to the Halti and loss of a free yip yah session when on lead, but I'm hopeful that he will love his Halti, and Learn what being on lead is supposed to feel like.
