Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: “ he hasn’t seen a rabbit yet”    Fri Mar 02, 2018 7:11 pm

I’m a big supporter of “never let a husky off a lead” in fact I don’t like the idea for any dog. My horse is trained to walk and work 100% at liberty. We could jog for hours no leads and she recalls / jobs beside me. However, being an animal with fight or flight instincts I don’t ever want to put her in a scenario that could endanger her. So on a lead she stays. I have the same thought process with the dogs. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

Anyways! The family has a cabin. By a lake. Surrounded by bush. 10:00 last night when I took him for a walk her met his first rabbit... snapped the lead clip and off he went into the scrub bounding over the bushes in the torch light like a drunk gazel.

He had the time.of.his.life!

As the surrounding roads are pretty vacant until morning I was mainly woried about snakes and the thousands of Kangaroos. Fun fact. Kangaroos are perfectly capable of drowning dogs...

Didn’t bother calling him, he had found a new love :p. Just stalled at a pathetic human pace in his general direction. One thing that surprised me was how quiet he was! Pitch black, thick scrub and he was dead silent.

Thankfully after 5-10 minutes he came bolting back to make sure we were alive. And home we went. I will forever be thankful for the “games” we play in vacant blocks. Teaching him to “check in” play chase and the good all “catch and release”. To him even with all the new exciting smells. Rabbits to chase and play with. It was just another game.

Despite his marathon run he put in a good show of being hyper active for the rest of the night. Just in case I thought a good run would tire him out.

Still, not something I would enjoy happening again. He will be double clipped from now on!!

I hate when that happens. Or when something has unknowingly happened to the fence and one gets through. One of mine is horrible to catch. He's on an adventure. Glad yours returned relatively soon.
