Well about 3-4 months back now, my partner and I saved a dog from the pound - she is a gorgeous dog. Staffy x sheppard of some sort. She has been an absolutely great dog when it comes to most thing, she has a great temprement, mixes great with family and kids and is pretty obedient.
Our problem is now that she tends to run up and down the fence line causing muddy tracks. We have a dog next door, plus another behind us and a park on the other side. Not only that we have kids next door that pop there heads over and call her name which I think does nothing but make her overexcited! She barks a bit whilst doing this but it's not a constant habit, she doesn't walk up and down the fence line all day - but enough that the tracks are now well and truely laid down!
So what do we do? I have tried to interrupt her while she is running up the fence line but nothing, I've tried putting her in the kennel everytime I catch her doing it, but again nothing. I've got no problems with a dog barking, they are dogs, but not running up and down the fence - is there a solution?
Thanks in Advance,
