greenakeys Posted December 6, 2008 Report Share Posted December 6, 2008 Ok. I have a new BC. He is 3. Great working dog. No problems with commands. His problem is that he roams. Tonight, for example, I took him out for a walk on the farm here, no lead seemed necessary as it was just a short walk to get some energy out and to pee before bed. He took off. Racing towards the neighbors house which is perhaps 300-400 yards up the hill across some pasture. No fences inbetween. He likes to head there to pee and mark his territory as the neighbors have a neutered Wheaten Terrier dog. My dog apparently has taken to peeing on their deck. I think actually up on their new deck. Im not sure. When he is on the way up towards the neighbors house he absolutely refuses to respond to commands. That'll do, lie down, here, stop, drop, roll, FREEZE GOPHER, nothing. He has to do his thing before he will even contemplate listening. What the heck can I do? He is a new dog. Ive had him 2 weeks. He takes off to the neighbors house on me often and doesnt listen to me to come back. How do you correct this behavior? Only walk him on a lead? Put him in a dog run when he isnt working sheep? Id love to trust him to be out with me when Im working around the farm but I cant yet. Will this come with time? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
