I had a feeling that it would not work if he was tied up however after this post I am going to get a martingale collar for walks I think they come in such pretty designs and just look so nice as well as being functional. I would put him in a stall, but I feel he would dig and mess them up and unfortunately its not my barn so I Dont have an extra empty stall I could use… alas I will figure it out may just get a gate/fence. As I know him more since i've only had him a week I will know how to keep him content if I am not right next to him. Maybe will get a portable crate... just doesn't seem as much fun :P
I don't know too much about the martingale collar other than it put pressure evenly around the neck. I currently have a harness I tried on my basenji mix, but he still tries to pull it off like a jacket I would like to bring him to my barn with me. However, I either will need to get a gate and put him away or get like a stick to put into the ground(not a stick whatever the long leashes that are anchored into the ground). My dogs head is smaller than his neck and can get out easily. Will a martingale collar one help and two will it work if I am not totally near him for an hour or so in some shade outside on a long leash. Or am I better with a gate. Soo many questions I know thanks!!!
Hehe thank you everyone for the input just don't know what his mix could be the shelter said some sort of terrier basenji. He was dropped off at animal control and was there with his time almost up. My boyfriend and I saw this boy we took him away from all the loud noise and out of the shelter and he is so far the best dog for us. I couldn't have dreamed up a better dog. Their loss my gain I guess
either way I love him to pieces but I figured if anyone wanted to confirm my belief or add to what they think he could be a mix of he is 25lbs 1 year old with BIG (in a loveable way) ears very quiet I have never heard him bark ive heard growl and whimpers occasionally he does not have a curly tail. clink the link to see more photos! thanks for any insight.
