Dog won t come inside

My 7 year old German Shepherd has never been inside. She is very very good with the kids in the neighborhood, and the family next door. I think she has become afrd of the kids on our cul-de-sac. They do a lot of high jacking, and she has had to knock them off their bikes more than once. The kids are starting to act out and she starts to snap at them. I called the animal control and told them that I did not want her spayed, and gave them our address and I told them to come and pick her up. She has to be taken to a vet because the back leg of her right paw is broken and I know that she has been dragging it because she walks in a sort of a circle on our driveway and back to our yard. I tried calling animal control agn but it rings over and over and the message left is that they are unable to complete the case because of "insufficient evidence." I am totally frustrated and don't know what to do. We bought her from the humane society in Jan. this year.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum! I would make sure that the Animal Control people (and the vet you take her to) has written down the name of the area your pup lives in. That will help in your investigation.

This happened to my momma dog, "Sofie", yesterday and she started doing it. She had a few puppies that she was going to spay and I sd okay and she hasn't tried to drag them anywhere since.

I'd be interested in knowing why your pup is trying to drag her back yard and if you had put her in a carrier when taking her home.

What kind of pups are these? If they are very young, try putting them in a crate and take her for a walk until they can walk by themselves. Most people with little ones don't like leaving them alone in a crate all day, but if you are doing what I suggest, it won't take long. If they are older, it's best to get them on a leash so you can pull them on a long walk if they start to walk.

If you need some advice on a leash, PM me. I use a Keeshond leash and a 5' rope. I bought the rope at Dollar Tree and got the Keeshond from someone who was selling them.

My mom is at work today so I don't have a lot of time to post, but just wanted to let you know that it did not happen agn today. She is not going to try to walk anywhere and we haven't heard from anyone at Animal Control. We will give her an injection for pn and hopefully she will be better by tomorrow.

P.S. Thank you agn for all of your help. It means the world to us.

Oh I'm glad to hear it didn't happen agn. I was thinking something like this might have happened. I'm glad to hear she is improving. Hopefully she will continue to improve!

My dog is very hyper. She wants to run and play. Whenever she is in the yard she will jump up on me or run in a circle around me. When I am with her I will hold onto her collar and let her go. When I'm walking with her I am able to pick her up and throw her in the car. The problem arises when we are not at home or if there are distractions. I have to put the leash on her and take her for a walk.

When I am home I put her in the carrier and pick her up when she does her dance. It works very well for me. I would only bring her in the house when I know I'm going to be home. When she is in the yard she is a little more hyper and I can't just hold the leash and let her go. She will run around in circles and she wants to jump on me when I'm doing dishes or laundry. I was afrd the walk would get too rough for her.

I agree that it's probably better to not let her run free. I also agree about the collar. She will try to drag me if she can!

Do you need to get your dog used to the collar and leash for when you go away? For example, I know that with my dog, if he didn't already know how to get into the car, I'd need to get him used to being in the car and getting in/out.

If you do need to go somewhere with your dog and there are other distractions, such as a busy store, I would agree with not walking anywhere (just bring him into the store with you and walk him on the leash in the store), especially if there is lots of distraction. If you are near a park, I would bring him in a crate and wt for a short time (just in case he needs to "uncrase" some of that energy/workload).

The best thing to do is what we've been trying with Lottie. My husband is going away for a few days and when we are leaving the house, we will take her with us. She will not have any distractions and will not get too excited. This is when I think that is best. I have tried letting her run around, and she gets a bit too excited. I find that I need to be home when she does this. If I am home, she is not jumping all over the house and she is calm. But she does seem to be more excited about the "leave." She needs to see me pull away. I do not do a "back door" thing (I have a front door). I drive the driveway and she hops out. Once she gets the idea that she can go in the car, she is fine. So that is what we will do this trip. I will leave the house when I hear her running around. I have to go out to the garage to let her out and that usually puts an end to it. I have a fenced in yard, and she will not get out if I leave. I will bring her into the house and let her sit for a few moments, and then we will go to the car. She will never be too excited when I do this.

Also, I would recommend that if you are taking Lottie on a trip, and she gets too excited, you have treats handy to bribe her with. She will not want to get in the car if she is not sure that you will let her get out when you are ready. I would think it would be best to have a short trip and no distractions, or if you
