running away

  1. Hound mix & bolting -- invisible fence?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I'm sure anyone with a hound is a familiar with this story, but up until this dog I'd only had spaniels primarily and all my dogs were raised from puppyhood which made consistent, firm training a bit easier.

  2. Puppy Running Away?

    Introductions
