One of my boarders (actually one of my pups back for a hunt training tune-up), took off this afternoon. It was supposed to be just a short walk around the pasture with all the dogs. While Thumper is ecollar trained, she did not have it on. I noticed within 2-3 minutes that she was not a part of the group.

I whistled and called for what seemed like hours, started going to the neighbors. returned from one neighbor, and there she sat in the pasture. Guess Thumper has earned the right to have the ecollar on even during casual walks! It is amazing how much a dog's hearing improves when the ecollar is on! Thumper takes off regularly on her owners, but this wasp the first time in 6 years she has done it with me!
