OK tonight I took Max & Peanut out back for their nightly OFF LEASH
potty and doodle run around 8pm.
My friend and I walk out back, I have my whistle and treats
next thing I know my Brenda says" annmarie is that a baby red fox?"
Before I know it Max & Peanut are like lightening bolting after a hedgehog!
they actually caught it and refused to listen to me, the whistle or acknowledge treats.
so I do the "BYE MAX" "BYE PEANUT "still no response :shock:
anyway, i run to them but stop 80 ft from them
Finally they stop , release the hedgehog (aka woodchuck) that runs in the woods . WHEW!and they stayed there waiting for me
I ALSO WAS sooo happy they released the hedgehog on command
as "drop it" worked!
In the end i did praise them for staying as in past they would have run in the woods........and they did come follow me back to house without a treat :wink:
PS they did same with deer other day but had stopped and ran back to me immediately. So I think i'll work MORE on whistle training ...
back to basics but at least they don't run in woods anymore
Oh My My!!! I am glad that you story didn't lead to one of them SWALLOWING it!!! HA!!! That's what would happen at my house!!! Very impressed that they dropped it and didn't run after it!!! WAY TO GO!!!
