Argh! These dogs of mine! O/H took out Tyler last night quite late,took him down the lake and let him offlead, No problems as his recall has always been spot on for 3 years until last night. There was a fox which wasn't very far away,he picked up the scent,fox turned and ran once it realised Tyler was there,Tyler spotted it running and gave chase,O/H called and called him back but he ignored him and carried on chasing after the fox O/H had to run after him,at one point he was out of sight,he ran out of the park,accross a busy duel carriageway (thankfully it was quiet because of the time)and was halfway up the road heading towards the docks when O/H managed to get him to stop. He didn't tell him off for bolting for obvious reasons,however he felt like it.I was annoyed with Tyler for ignoring O/H but he said that it was perfectly normal for him to chase after the fox after picking up the scent. O/H said it happened so quickly and it was so unexpected he didn't have chance to put him back onlead before he bolted. He has never been a problem offlead and has never chased anything before,he has never bothered with other offlead dogs, cats in the garden etc. So why did he give chase last night ? I'm not even sure what he would have done had he caught the fox because he doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. So obviously this leaves us with little faith in his recall,so how do I deal with it ?
