loudlucky Posted July 5, 2007 Report Share Posted July 5, 2007 Hi, I just got home from a trip to the shopping mall and went inside the house... only to hear my Jack Russell Terrier barking outside a few minutes later. And, what do I see when I come out of the front door???? Some high school kids (two girls approx 14-16 years old) reaching over the fence and picking Wollie up from outside our yard!! When I told them to leave my puppy alone (he was in his puppy pen, seperated from the other dogs, that were going mad but they couldn't get to the kids) they swore at me and told me they could do what they wanted with my dogs if it pleases them - can you believe this!!!! And they weren't 'just playing' - they almost had him over the fence! You can imagine me being upset and worried about the 'kids' being dognapped... ANY ideas on teaching Wollie not to allow people to touch (or pick him up!) over the fence??? He is such a loving puppy and I don't want him to bite at everyone, but if I can teach him not to go to them or allow strangers to touch him when I'm not with him it could save his life? I didn't want a 'mean looking' dog like a rottie (no affense but I don't think any kids will try to touch them over a fence no matter how lovely they can be!) but I'd like for Wolllie not to get stolen and at least pretend to be mean when they reach over the wall! Any input from you guys would be much appreciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
