A good "safety" exercise to practice is a command that tells your dog treats are in the offing, and use it at irregular intervals when you are walking. Combine the command with a total release of pressure on the leash, preferably when your dog has firm tension on said leash. Then if something unexpected happens you have a built in reaction of the dog to look to you for a reward. This won't work if your dog is pursuing a major distraction, but should give you an edge if you have an equipment failure in otherwise neutral conditions. (you can carry this one step further by "accidentally" dropping the leash in a controlled area, or with a light line attached for safety, and practice until the dog turns to you when it feels a total release)
FOUND-MO-St. Joseph-Brindle Female-Probably PB-In Shelter
This brindle girl who weighs 20 lbs. is in the shelter and was found recently as a stray as her stray hold release is 7/18. St. Joseph is approximately 50 miles NW of Kansas City and is on the MO/KS border.
I have not contacted the shelter to see if she has been picked up by her owner.
Here is her Petfinder page:
She is now available for adoption and it states that she does bark some!

She is very pretty with a very unique coat! If she was closer I would consider it…for which Oakley is thankful of. Hope her family finds her
