    Oh dear... 6 dogs that shouldn't be let off a lead! :rolleyes:

    I am extremely lucky I live next to a large cattle farm where the owner is happy for the guys to roam free "because they scare the panther away!"

    It's well fenced around the perimeter, no roads and just the occasional deer!
    Most days we meet up with several other people, and generally end up with around 15 dogs between us! :D

    I think managing a pack with a strong hunting instinct is different to walking individual dogs, and I would argue that it is easier to walk a well-managed pack off-lead than one or two.

    I'm sure this post will be followed by the usual comments, but I would stress that if I am ever walking somewhere where there are roads/houses/small livestock/ any other hazard they all go back on a lead! :)

    Thanks for nice comments :D

    @ Sid&Kira I live in Stroud, Gloucestershire :)

    I'll put a few more pics up, I haven't really been on here for a while, so have a good few months worth to add!

    There's still ample opportunity for chaos, as the roe deer population is reasonably healthy, and they are all fairly acquained with people & dogs, so in the past we have had a few mishaps! (Not the Beagles or Koda, but the Bassets love it) But at least there's no harm that they (or the deer for that matter) can come to.

    On occasion my Pygmy Goats will come out on walks too, and they tend to keep the dogs in line! :p

    @Sid&Kira

    I think it would be a fair fight- my two goats (one of which is blind) saw off 3 Newfoundlands & a Leonberger the other day! :p

    Koda has played with them since she was a tiny pup, and just thinks they are dogs! :)

    @Kaisa 642

    Where are you moving to? More than welcome to meet up!

    They're like sheep-dogs but dog-goats!

    When they are allowed in the top garden they will round up all of the dogs and herd them into the house, and then guard the back door!

    Considering the fact that the hounds are all ex-hunt, it is pretty pathetic on their part! :D

    ...Yeah, apparently there's a panther that 'lives in the woods'

    Didn't you know? There's one under every bush in Gloucestershire :p
