    Afternoon walk this time

    Usually my husband walks Jar in the afternoon, which, while a much shorter walk than the morning, is harder because there are actual people and other dogs and kids on bikes and stuff.

    So anyway, today I walked with them, and we walked by this house that we used to walk by all the time - they had the cutest little black shepherd mix puppy, and she loved to race back and forth in the fenced-in yard when Jar walked by. The two of them would bounce and frolic and just generally have a great time.

    We walked by today, and bouncy puppy was out, but she's not such a puppy anymore. And she's far from bouncy - when we walked by the yard, she bared her teeth and snarled, with all her back-hairs standing on end - she was NOT the sweet bouncy puppy she used to be. I suspect she's never been any farther than that yard - and never had any kind of contact with other dogs.

    So while not-so-bouncy puppy was being jerky and reactive, Jar just walked by, looked at her, looked back at me, and said "what's her deal?" and kept on going like the excellent dog he is.

    Awesome. You've done such a good job with him. You'd think the not so little pup would have remembered you.

    Thanks. icon_smile.gif

    And yeah, I'd have thought she'd have remembered us too, but really, we only walked by now and then, and even then, she was only occasionally outside, and it's probably been a couple of years, so. . . I guess it's not that surprising that she didn't remember her old bouncy buddy.

    It's kind of sad to see her so - what? grumpy like that, though.

    You dog folks would know better than me, but it sounds territorial to me...

    @ Saralaya...yes it is territorial and a more socialized dog would likely still do the tearing up and down the fence line barking but it wouldn't be a hostile thing.

    Our guys are usually in the back yard where it is fenced and they always alert us to dogs passing by but there are a few dogs that Madison goes insane about. She doesn't want doggie buddies as a rule so her reactions tend to go from indifference right up the scale to "I'm going to rip your throat out". Yesterday we were walking both dogs and Don put a long line (30' +) on Dawson so he can throw a ball for him but we still have a prayer of retrieving the dog. There was a woman visiting a family beside the park and she had a young female Dane off leash. Both dogs went nuts. Dawson because he wanted to play and Maddie because she wanted to kill it. I walked Maddie to a different section of the park while Dawson dragged Don at the end of the line romping with the Dane.

    Jarly is soooooo much better Kris. I know it has been a ton of hard work but you really have put your heart in to it and the payoff is showing more and more. Kudos to you! Jarly too of course. icon_wink.gif

    Thanks, K9. Fortunately, I know that he CAN be a more social dog - he has been in the past. Otherwise, I don't know if I'd have kept trying so hard, honestly.

    We have another fence-dashing neighbor dog - Sierra. And you're right, I've seen her in the yard, around people, off-leash, I've even seen her owner walk to meet the bus (sans leash) and she's great. I think, in her case, the fence charging is almost a game. Sure, she's warning intruders and all, but she's not as angry-seeming when she does it.
