    Thanks SRV, I NEVER praise her for being scared!

    Ive been told the best way is to say "its ok, enough now!" and it seems to work well. However she seems to run on impulse without even thinking about it.

    I honestly think my best option is behaviour management. I know that it is going to take a long time and is going to be tough but hey......Ive put in the hard yards so far, Im not giving up now

    Thank you for the tip about the next room...Il try that when I get home

    Like Stafford Rescue and others have mentioned (?) I think now is a great opportunity to enlist Ron's help with Bailey's issue towards males as much as you can, Judge.

    Good to hear she is home safe

    The longest Arwen has been missing was 10 hours, and that was overnight too, was horrible


    Good morning arwen

    You have weigh up the expense of keeping her safe vs pound fees if picked up or vet bills if a car hits her. It is difficult when money is tight but it may save you in the long run.

    Im well aware of the pro's and con's unfortunately I certainly wasnt expecting to be made redundant last friday I know my family would lend me the money for pound fee's, vet bills etc however Im not so confident that they would lend me the money for a kennel run. Il see what I can come up with.

    I'd start a thread on a few forums asking if anybody has a second hand run. You might be suprised and pick up something cheap or even free.

    Is it possible to crate her when you can't be there to supervise her? We used a crate here quite successfully to contain a dog whose obsessive destruction meant he couldn't be left alone. It worked well for him.

    I do hope you find a solution that works.

    I found the crate was a lifesaver. No more coming home to destruction!! I made sure he'd been to the toilet before putting him in. Make it comfy and safe. I never used it as punishment.

    Just test that she can walk in and turn around comfortably. You'll be right, a bit of trial and error with problem dogs, sorting what works for them.

    I'm so glad that he returned home albeit with sore paws poor baby. My youngest daughter lives in Elizabeth Vale & during one of the storms a few years ago, her dog diesel took off, he was magnificent staffy x but a big big boy, she searched for weeks, posters everywhere but never ever found him. One lead she got, she had put the "have you seen" poster up with his photo on it in a barber shop at the local centre, a policeman walked into the shop took the poster off and have no idea why, he wouldnt say apparently so the barber couldnt give Sally any more info. But she says every time she sees a big red dog she goes for a close up hoping that it may be him.

    One of my biggest fears was that some **** wit would find her and realise what breed she is and then I would never get her back

    Thankfully she is desexed so that is a slight deterant (sp?).
