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)
Lost Female in Dallas, TX
Please cross post
ROSIE- FEMALE BRAT , 5 YEARS OLD, RED AND WHITE
She escaped the fence at her foster home last night at bedtime. She had been there so briefly that she is unfamiliar with the area.
IS WEARING HER BRAT TAGS 3303
LOST IN THE DALLAS SUBURB OF UNIVERSITY PARK / LOVE FIELD AREA.
ESCAPED FROM FOSTER HOME ON WILDWOOD ROAD,
NEAR LOVERS LANE AND LEMMON AVENUE
FROM HER CURRENT FOSTER: SUSIE P.
She will not come when called and will be very hard to get even if I find her. I need some help.
She does have her tags with the BRAT #'s on them.
I have my cell phone (214)-729-3184 and am going to start walking the neighborhood with food and a
leash and hope to find her. Please let me know immediately if anyone calls.
Heres her online profile for pics.

Any word yet on Rosie? I sure hope she is safe and sound somewhere..
Basenjimamma, I was thinking about her this morning too!
I hope she is back home, safe.
I know, it breaks my heart.. I actually thought of adopting her back in october but then we decided to take Moses, the podengo instead..
Poor little scared girl.
I've been thinking about her too. I've watched her on BRAT for a while, and I got so excited when I saw that she was pending… then apparently she wasn't a good fit for the people that wanted her or vice versa. I thought about adopting her too, if she still hadn't found a home at the end of the summer, especially if I decide to go to grad school in NM or CO, but possibly even if I stay on the east coast. I hope she is ok and someone finds her soon.
