Bloody dogs!

Post by Shisa on Fri Jun 20, 2014 5:32 pm

First topic message reminder :

Spike, Axel and Lequita disappeared earlier. Gone without a trace. I called and called for about 10 minutes before finally spotting them at the top of my far field.
Axel knew he was in **** so ran away even further but when he saw Spike and Lequita were heading my way he turned and followed them.
Thank God for good recall! as they were probably 1.5km away.
I think it's the first time they've had smacked bums although it hurt me more. I chased and smacked their butts all the way home.

They're crashed out and my wrist is sore.

Another thank you to the Allmighty as the farmer moved all the cattle and sheep out from my fields a few days ago.

I don't know what they saw that made them climb through the fence and go off.

I nearly had 2 heart attacks and only 1 from exertion.

Shisa, can I ask something? If this is a recent "Great Escape" stunt by the same three dogs, and none of your many dogs have done it before, could it be possible that they have formed a little clique between them and one of them (and I'm thinking Lequita here I'm afraid) is the ring leader of this little escape committee?

Please forgive me for making presumptions, but as they did it again today the thought crossed my mind and I had to spill it.

No you are completely correct Lynda but the ringleader is whomever thinks of something naughty they can get into. They take turns. Usually it's harmless like digging or stealing my firewood and chasing the one with a piece and chewing on it.
This is a problem with a pack of young, highly intelligent dogs. I've upped their training time and am now starting to push them to work properly.
Playtime is over.


And Australia is full of things wanting to murder you. You guys have it a lot worse than we do.

Over here, it's just the humans who want to murder us! tongue

Probably to be expected, with a group of young, fit and active dogs. The extra training should exhaust help them though! happy

Sadly, yes, many things here are deadly. All good.... we learn to live together. Snakes are nothing a strong shovel cant decapitate.  shocked 
Sorry...but its a fact.

How about a tread mill for them? Jess is forever stealing wood to make kindling. Wear them out till they have no energy for mischief.

Hahahaha..... your funny!
Red belly black snakes are actually quite beautiful. Sleek, Jet black with a brilliant red underbelly. Beautifully built by mother nature herself. Magnificent creature.

They just happen to be deadly. covering eyes 
Google red belly black snake... images, they are beautiful. love 

Rather them than our spiders. Least I can find a snake. Red back's. (spiders)....shocked arghhhhh. I hate the little bastards!!!

Con!!!!.... we gotta bomb the house again!!! I dont care if they're in the yard! I aint having them inside!!!!

Tracy - they run the whole damn day. They are super fit and have cart loads of stamina. My trainer said she hasn't seen GSD's that can keep up the punishment for so long as mine do, in ages.
I am forcing them to think more now. They have to work harder for their clicks and treats, have to sit correctly, upped the time on their stays. We're not playing at Obedience anymore.
I am working myself to death with training. Takes up about 5 hours a day now.

Look on the bright side - at least they'll keep you busy! laughing

We only have four wild species of snake in the UK: the Adder, grass snake, smooth snake and the (naturalised) Aesculapian snake. So if I ever see a snake over here, I'm in awe! laughing I love them!

They'll get me fitter as well - I hope.

I've read a few things on Australia's fauna and geez, there are some mean critters.

Can always rely on a dog to keep you active! tongue

I'd love to go to Australia, just to see the wildlife, but there's no way I could ever go with a dog like Dempsey. For a start, the heat would kill him. He also chases and attempts to catch any small, moving animal.

Demps cannot come then.... even our river dwellers (platypus) are poisonous.

Fingers crossed it helps. It sounds like a really good idea in the circumstances. A little shock is a lot better than the alternatives.

Good luck Shisa with your anti-escape deterrent fencing, I really hope it works!

I had to put up anti-Kuchar-escape fencing at the end of last year for my tiny garden and it cost £600 + (including labourer, who trod all over the plants he didn't cut back altogether).

Dogs - who'd have 'em?

The Platypus is venomous, Caroline, not poisonous - not quite as bad, considering it's very unlikely that the little guys will actually use it! Even if they do, it's not life threatening to a human! happy They have a venom sack by their spurs. The males are the venomous ones, as well, not the females.

I wish we had more native snakes! I was in Heaven on my course - they had hundreds of different species!

Good on your mum's landlord, Theresa! Hope it works! happy

Just to mention something about the original topic (again  tongue )...

The little feckers got out again. I can't leave them unsupervised outside anymore
