View Full Version : Galina running off

She has earned the nic name of "The weenies" with her antics. We live on the top of a mountain on 18 acreas at the top- but most of it is wooded with about 3 acreas as grass/controlled weed. Anyway- Galina was diving into the woods- and although she would eventually hit a fence, I dont want her charging around in the woods with the wild life we have. For months she stayed on a flexi but the transition has been really hard- with the knowledge of knowing to have boots on to retrieve her out. Well the other day, where she went up a deer trail, When I found her, the easiest way back out was the trail we entered from. As I neared the end, she spotted her brother and took off to go in the house. PRAISE PRAISE as I approached the door ( my mind wanted to kill her... lol... ). Anyway since then- instead of my having to retrieve her from another direction, she comes back the same path..
NOW DUH!!! Miss dog trainer! When a dog breaks a stay, you put them back where they where-- When they do not do a recall right, you put them back on their same path they should have taken.. Well by God, although I took the path back as easier for me to walk in the woods, Galina learned "hey all I have to do is turn around and go back how I went in"... Now she jumps in about 10 feet, grabs a stick, and comes flying back out. POOF PROBLEM SOLVED!

LOL! Well, at least she knows now. Must have been amazing to her that she figured that tough problem out. The weenies is a smart cookie isn't she!?...lol.

I would like to know where does she think she is going- jumping over fallen trees.. lol.. She gets the silliest look on her face. And poor brother- stands at the edge waiting for her to come back out... lol. Then the ambush starts all over again.. ( 'knucklehead' hottie mutters to himself as he watches her...)
