    DefaultI'm not sure whether to be cross or pleased

    Walking the pups this morning and they went charging off after a leashed border collie about 3000yds away !

    No way could I catch up with them and forget about recall - totally ignored me.

    I did however chase after them taking a short cut around an obstruction but by the time that I got to the BC it was on it's own with it's owner - no sign of my two !

    I turned round to retrace my steps, and found that they had said their "hallo" to the BC and had then rushed back to where I had been to find me !



    Made me feel sort of important !

    Don't kid yourself mister! The fact they deserted you for a Border Collie in the 1st place, proves they thought the other dog was much more important than you.

    They know where they belong. Your boys thought you would be right behind them charging after BC.
    I too noticed that whenever the dogs don't come back when called, If I'm out of sight, they come back looking for me. (Duke is the exception which is why he is never off leash or out of fence.)

    You should be pleased and proud that your pups came back tp where they thought you were. All kids, independent of the number of legs, have to test the limits, have some fun occasionally.

    Good boys. Have to let a little steam off sometimes.

    Sam always comes looking for me when he can't see me.

    pleased they came back
    BUT they could have really created a problem for the person with the leashed dog ...

    This was 06:30 in the morning and my usual routine says there are seldom other dogs around !

    'sides my pups don't have a bad bone in their bodies !

    Why the person with the BC went into the field which is an off leash area beggars belief anyway !

    maybe they usually walk right there at 6:24 and have never seen another dog either
    you hadn't said if it was an offleash area or not


    i know there are a couple of informal "offleash areas" at my old home - I had to stop walking one of my dogs there as there were so few people who had ANY control of thier dogs there - and Hank is BIG and reactive .. I wasn't ready to risk an incident because of other dogs getting in his face

    it's hard for them to resist when it comes to visiting with other dogs, but like you said, they came back on their own, and that's worth something.
