Zoomin Moomin- if I had a zoomin moomin, I would trim the rosebush down & put some mesh fencing around it, double check the fence moomins hurting herself on & fix anything sticking out. I would apply training so she learns limits. I would go out & click a lead on say click down & or sit & show her the treat, when she's down on all fours and or sitting give the treat + pat praise. Then click quiet treat pat praise for silence, come with me- show treat, lead her away from the fence, treat pat praise. etc etc If you can start it before moomin zooms- even better but you may have to work up to that. Once thats established you dont need a lead on & moomin should be zoomin to you when you call her. I also say watch out !stop! if my dogs racing like a lunatic & its not safe- she's learnt what stop means by on lead training first- then responds to voice command off lead.
haha! Zoomin Moomin! So good! Yes I think you're right. I probably need to go back to basics and clicker training to work on her recall. I think I need to always have treats on me as when we do training sessions and she knows the treats are there she's perfect. Then when she doesn't think I've got any she doesn't respond to commands at all. We do have a project to put up nose-protecting bamboo on the wall and gate this spring. Mesh fencing is out as she manages to hurt herself on it (gets her claws stuck and cuts her nose on the edges) but I know I have to brainstorm some kind of barrier to protect her and the plants.
