I have a 2.5 yr old basenji male. Milosh, hes a runner, I take him to my local fenced dog park almost everyday. Recently though hes been picking up the most terrible habbit.
he loves todo laps around the park when he hears a train passby (local railroad), after train is gone he is still doin the laps, unfortunately he the decides randomly nibble
the nbearest dog to encurage play.
the dogs do not like this and mostly screech and fear him when he nibbles- there are a handful of small dogs and owners arent thrilled with me on this outcome, it hasnt gotten too serious-
but theres been times when it could have-please help!
will this pass as he gets older? -and what can i do to prevent this behavior? i recently started walking him on the leash inside the park, but it breaks my heart that he isnt
free running as he enjoys so much!and all other dogs are un leashed.
i keep my eye on him when the train passes -but hes like a wet fish, so when the issue is at hand its a little too late,and iam cought yelling across the park his familiar
commands 'leave it'- 'relax'….but he just blacks out to nibblin them dogs for play!.
