Needle in a woods behind my house
« on: July 15, 2018, 06:40:08 pm »

I had my Boxer tied on a lunge line that I use to tie her up when we are busy and can't keep our eyes on her while she is playing out side.  Most of the time we walk her on a lunge line or if we are working outside where we can watch her constantly, we tie her on a lunge line.  Well she was tied out while I was working on weeds and such, and she got the lead over her head and off her back.  So, when I checked on her, she  was gone.  I called and called for about 5 min. when her and Kandi came out from the woods behind our land.  Kandi had taken off her new suit we had just bought her.  We had walked around there a some but couldn't find her new coat.  It was a nice one that when she pulled out of it over her head by bracing her self and backed out moving it over her head.  I was glad she didn't get chocked or hurt, but I was mad because the coat was brand knew and she lost it already. 

So, Steve and I finally took a walk out there again looking for it but could not find it on the trail or around the the bushes.   Then we walked down onto the dirt road heading towards home and Steve  found it hooked on a log just up on the little hill  about 20 ft.  off the road.  So, we are trying it again, making it a little tighter and watching her closer when she is out side on her lunge line.

Sounds scary!  Glad she came home.  Can you use a harness instead?

Yes I agree==a harness is a better idea. If she gets loose again, you may not be so lucky to find her. The internet is full of lost dogs and cats--and so many are never found. Please try something like a harness, and be sure it's snug enough that she can't wiggle out. And while I think of it--also put a collar on (not tied up with it)--with her I.D. tags AND a bell, so if she does get away--hopefully you will hear her. Good luck!

I have an escape artist and use a Thunder Leash on her that is the only thing that works.  Good luck
