Bolted

Post by Jnestie84 on Tue May 23 2017, 12:13

On our walk today Gus went off to have a good sniff only for him to get spooked and bolt for home. I ran after him to find him to find him playing with our next door neighbours kids. I don't know what spooked him and I've never seen him like that before, I felt so sorry for him. I will pop down later to have a look if I can see what was down there.

Ah might be safe james to use a long line and practice recall a long line gives them freedom but security and peace of mind for you. Hope gus is ok.

To be fair his recall is really good. We have really made a big effort with recall although we realise it's still a work in progress. Something must have really spooked him as he wouldn't go back that way this evening. My wife did say he was very reluctant to go that way the other day. Maybe we have a Sasquatch down in our woods Laughing

No idea what a sasquatch is perhaps associate that place with positive things such as a toy or treats Smile

Katy is known to bolt when scared or spooked. Usually there is a gate stopping her but once a numpty left the 1st gate open & I found her at home. Luckily it's at the end of our lane & no roads to cross whew!

We are lucky where we live as the fields and forest back onto our house. At least the neighbours and their kids are used to and like Gus.

I would rather she ran to me than run off, sometimes she does especially if it's another dog that may be trying to say hello to her mum Rolling Eyes She can spook at silly things that weren't there yesterday but are now Surprised

Young ones can get spooked very easily and most often the cause is something they can hear but not see.In fact I have known our Tess get spooked by a very big bird flying across the garden.

I have no idea. I was thinking he might have found a foxhole or something.

Jen,I think it is all to do with their make-up.Tess is exactly the same,I would never call her a laid back dog,she can jump sometimes if someone drops something.She is always alert to what is going on around her,never misses a thing.
I think without doubt she is the smartest staff that I have ever owned,and at times i'm sure she can read peoples minds.It always amazes me the senses that a dog has that we don't.
