    I am glad she is home, I can only imagine how scary that would have been for you. I hope her pads heal quickly.

    TBH Judge the idea of a dog run such as Occy suggested is great. Not only would you rest easy about her safety when you're not at home, but I also feel it could help her with issues she's facing. Kind of like a safe haven, so to speak.

    Any way you and your family could arrange this?

    You could bend the fence in but why not build it as a run? What is the hard in actual safety instead of possible, hopeful, safety

    You were lucky. So was I two weeks ago.
    I completely understand where you are coming from Occy but I am only living with my mum temporarily and she rents. So unfortunately making a run is not an option. Mum will not be going anywhere in the meantime and ron has promised to not raise his voice at her. I know that they may not work though. Like Stafford rescue said...if she wants to get out, she will!

    The only benefit about her problems is that she is scared of other dogs and isn't dog aggressive (that I have seen, although she is a dog and can be unpredictable). She is also very friendly with women and children of all ages however is extremely wary of men and will not approach them.

    Im just hoping that during the interim of me finding my own home, she will feel safe enough not to escape.

    I will discuss this option with mum and get her to contact her landlord however I am sure this subject has come up in the past and it was not allowed by the landlord

    Il see what I can do...but Im sure most are aware that funds are a little tight right now Perhaps I can see if I can borrow one from somewhere? Perhaps the council may have one?

    You can buy a portable run, they are pretty good for what they are... I would be worried about her getting out thou... I only say this because no-one would believe that Dooee can get out of anything, he has even eaten thru a bedroom door.... behaviour modifiation will be your best option....

    Get Ron to be in the next room, yelling softly at first... while you are in the next room playing with your girl and distracting her... using treats when she shows no signs of fear... every time she reacts you need to take it back a step, until she can eventually handle him talking loudly and yelling... The most important thing is to not let your dog think it's ok to be worried... she needs to learn to relax....

    I dont think this will help, she needs to get use to it, and learn to ignore...
