Agreed asides from the electric fence. OP, you teach your dog recall, you keep them close near roads etc, and let them off only places where it's safe. I'm in the UK so some things may vary, but I think those basic rules of dog ownership are the same. You don't just open the front door and let them go for a while. You Go for a walk with them! Poor dog with an owner like you. I hit FYL by accident, wish you could remove your vote when that happens >:(
I absolutely hate people like this. There's several geniuses in my neighbourhood who let their dogs loose for the entire day. They keep following people, barking at everything, lashing out at my dog who's on a leash. I seriously can't be held responsible if one of these days, he bites back.
Exactly. My dog is awesome. She's an Australian Shepherd and about as smart as they come. I've trained her to do all sorts of things, including not touching a piece of steak till I give the ok for her to do so (can even walk about of the room for several minutes and she won't even sniff it, just look around until I come back). My dog is also able to be let out without a leash because she stays in our yard, doesn't chase any animals, and is super friendly. She also comes to the family business, located off of a busy highway, and can be let outside by herself with no worries. She refuses to go past the fence towards the road even on a leash, and she loves to sit in the grass and just look around. Dogs need training and to be obedient! We started with Issey when she was just a ouppy and she's phenomenal now (at 8 years old).
Everyone is very quick to say YDI without knowing exactly what happened... OP stated the dog escaped (expand the first comment) Also, yes dogs need to be trained and need to become obedient but what if this dogs a pup? My dog is nearly 2 years old and can do tricks and is obedient in the back yard but take her for a walk and it's all systems go and she tries to get away and do her own thing. Nothing to do with my poor training because I am training her to my best abilities, just sometimes shit happens. Yes it can be avoidable but dogs find ways out.
sorry but ydi, you obviously let him do all that including roam the streets without any supervision. the way its worded makes it seem like you stayed inside, but you knew what he did, so were you watching from the window or something? "oh my dogs playing dead on a street were cars drive, oh well" :/
Thank you 42. That was the exact reason why I posted it. I never knew so much people on here would take this post to heart. It isn't that serious to hate me for it.
