Default My dog almost made my heart skip a beat again.

Hi

I have a cavalier king charles, she is 7 months old and listens all the time apart from when she sees someone new.

Today, i was playing with her in the garden and the neighbour walked past and she ran for them (to say hi not bite or anything), i told her to stop and come here but she didnt listen so i raised my voice and she still didn't listen and ran right upto them.

The reason i was soo worried was because there is a road right outside my house which is busy and about 3 months ago she ran down that road and i was %100 certian she would be hit by a car as she was running right in the middle of the road.

For the past 3-4 months she has been good but when i sow her running today i thought oh no not again.

Problem is i cant take her to the park because all the other dogs bullie her and step on her.

I usally have no problem playing with her in the garden but after today im stuck on what to do, she loves playing in the garden but when someone walks by there is no stopping her. Is there ANY way i can get her to not do that. After she does should i punnish her???(today i yelled at her and sent her to her bed area).

Im sure she knows she done wrong because she ran straight to her bed area and lowered her head while looking up at me for almmost a hour straight.

YOu cant ever punish them if they come to you when you call..what i am trying to do with Victor (i am boundry training too and it is a bite in the b**) is if he breaks the boundry i call him in..praise him for coming then take him back to the edge telling him NONONO and pointing out where he went..then i put him back on the leash for a few days. He gets to watch mary have all the fun freedom cause she doesn't leave..i walk the boundry over and over with him..letting him know one side is cool, the other is not. We were making incredible progress until a cat ran across the yard and out into the street last week. He went right after it, chased it two yards away and up a tree, coming back just in time to cross the path of a car. I was already in the street so i had stopped the car and pointed..now we are back on the leash. I WANT INVISIBLE FENCE so bad i can taste it. I am going to borrow my friend's electric collar and hope that one afternoon will be enough...i can't afford to rent one daily, and she takes her dogs to the dog park everyday..using the collar as a reminder to her coon hound not to wander off, so she will not be able to part with it any longer than that. victor is so sensitive that i hope once will be enough..cross your fingers for us..i truly want him to have the advantage of this lovely yard. When i got him we had a fine yard and a fence, but my landlord went broke and we had to move. Let me know if anything works for you.

We have an invisible fence for our two and now sometimes I don't even put the collar on and they won't cross the boundaries. My daughter went to take them for a walk around our "oval". We took the collars off and put their leashes on and they still would not cross over the line. Which that kind of upsets me because if I force them accross knowing that they don't have the collars on, would I be telling them that its OK now? I think I'm going to have to bring them to the Park here to bring them for walks. You have to drive a bit to get there, but only up the street.

Why not get a Sky line for your Cav king charles? Sky lines are terrific. There's a long line over head (sort of like a clothes line) and then, you attach a leash (usually 30 ft or so) and the leash slides along the line, so, she can basically go around the whole yard, but not get out of it. Does that make any sense? Gaddy can explain it better than I can

A skyline is a good idea.

LOL. You explained it well!! One chain goes up in the air (attached to your house and/or a tree), and another chain, with a clip attached to the end, hangs down for you to attach to your dog's collar. That way she can't get tangled and she can run around.

Sky line, thats a great idea, i have never seen one but i am sure the internet will have one.


I am sorry for sounding dumb but its the first time i have had a dog and had a couple or questions.
What is "INVISIBLE FENCE"????
One of the posts said you took the collar off and put a leash on, by leash do you mean that harness thing that goes around their chest??

THANKS for all the replies.

Vegas - Brady and Jenny did that to Liz and I the other day. We hardly ever have them in the front yard because we both have sufficient back yards for them with fences, but we were about to walk them, and Brady saw someone right across the street walking their 4 month old lab puppy so he took off, and Jenny took off with him, and it scared us so bad. They would NOT listen to us, and they usually are so good, except when they see a person or a dog. They think they have to greet everyone.

I believe an INVISIBLE FENCE is a system that uses a shock collar, which is programmed to shock the dog, when it crosses the boundry (I've never used one, so I may be wrong on that). When the poster said they took the collar off, they were refering to the shock collar. By leash, she means, a regular ol' collar and leash, like for walking. We're always happy to help out, if you have any more questions

I think it's a bit irresponsible to keep a dog outside next to a busy road without a leash/fence, especially when you know that they get a bit wild when they see someone.

For her sake, get one of those fences or don't leave her outside without leash anymore.
