    Default Brian and Bernie bugger off. I followed.....at a discreet distance

    So after bragging for years, that bernie never leaves our property, im now here to correct that. Bernie has up till today, never been caught. Bernie mature GSD. Brian, a bordeaux mastiff rescue numpty.
    So we get back in from dawn walk. Its around 6.30am. Id been woken by Brian's cries to get out and go to loo. I dress, walk them come back.
    Make a coffee, sit on sofa with some paperwork n lap top, when Pohm (dog no 2)comes to alert me something is wrong. I go immediately, and just see Brian's tail go out of sight. I grab my gum boots, and pohm and i head off to catch the bastards! off property without a pass!

    I keep back, interested to see where they are going. Straight to the lake, for a swim. then a great game of; Round up the ducks onto the bank. Sit and gaurd for a minute. Then they round them back into the lake, keep them in a group, near the bank sort of rounding up in water? Me and pohm take a seat and watch this fiasco.
    Till eventually, they tire and come home.

    Bernie spotted me and pohm first. and his ears went down, tail went down, instant guilty dog. He knows he's done wrong, i swear.
    Brian, spots us only because bernie's sudden change in energy spells somethings wrong here. And then see's us sitting on the log. He has no remorse, comes bounding at us all goofy. till he got rollocked by Pohm good n proper for wandering off. And taken very fast back into our property and put to bed! Hillarious!

    I was going to forgive, move on, and praise him for returning. God im so soft compared to how mumma dog is!

    Thank you for your post ! At least Pohm is looking after everyone ! Never mess with a 'bit$h' on a mission !

    I didn't think it had been the first time they had been out ! Didn't Bernie and Brian go 'walkies' to your previous place a while ago ?

    I hope you have found where they are getting out ? Cheeky buggers - definitely partners in mischief and mayhem !

    See this is why I dispute the "experts" who say dogs don't know when they've done the wrong thing. They will say it's your mood/body language/whatever but IMO dogs definately know that they've done something they've been taught not to do

    I'm gunna have to find the video where a dog gets blamed for something it didn't do and it looks completely guilty but it didn't do the deed...

    Can't find the video yet but here's a description of the study...

    http://www.thedogdaily.com/ca/conduc...#axzz305Pvazld

    owners felt their dogs looked guilty even if their dogs had not stolen the treat. owners felt their dogs looked very guilty if they were told the dogs had stolen the treat - even if they had not. Dogs looked more guilty if the owners scolded them...

    however - on the dog reading the owner body language...
    tonight I was a bit late walking home with evil hound, it was dark which is usually not a problem but...
    there was a big man coming towards us on the footpath and he was smoking (yuck). And he didn't move off the footpath - he just kept coming. Most people talk some sort of action to avoid evil hound... evil hound never stopped sniffing the fences and ground.

    So my heart beat goes up several notches. I don't like this man because he's smoking (I can see and smell the cigarette from a long way), and he's not showing any kind of normal caution or allowance for personal space approaching someone smaller than him with a reasonable sized DOG.

    So Evil hound completely ignores him as we go past even tho I've shortened her lead right up enough to interfere with her sniffing and I'm completely anxious freaked out on alert. what is that?

    other times - she's had a full on go at some bloke as we go past. Last time was a smaller skinner more effeminate bloke with a beret or strange hat on. She was going to eat him for sure. And he seemed odd but not threatening to me.

    Sorry to derail your thread bernie but :

    I've gone to go into a room that I rarely go into with Jack trailing behind me ... next thing Jack is nowhere to be seen ... of course i find a poo in a corner. The poo in the corner was pre-doggy door days and was my fault, but I had no idea it was there. Why did Jack all of a sudden decide he didn't want to be there?

    Jack smelled the poo and knows you get mad when there is poo in the house?

    He might not get the connection that he should not poo in the house and that you're mad at him for doing it.

    He definitely wants to avoid angry you.

    Ie what do you do when you find poo in the house. Do you turn around and look at him with grumpy face and say "did you do that?" and then act grumpy while you clean up in front of him?

    Try it with a different dog's poo in the corner - safely in a plastic container but lid off... see if you don't get the exact same reaction.
