Many states have their own requirements for when your dog needs to be on a leash. Find your state here to check out what they are.

My little guy is on a leash at all times outdoors. Though he has been trained at an early age to come when he is called, there is always a chance that he will dart into the road for whatever reasons. He’s a little hound, and he loves to chase rabbits. Whether I call him or not, if he spots that rabbit going across the street into the woods, Austin is bolting right in his trail. (Ugh! Just the thought of that.)

Leashes and runners can be a real nuisance ,especially when you put two dogs out in the yard together, each on their own leash. Get a load on these pictures of Austin and my daughter’s dog, Eli.

So here you have it!

A tangled mess.

I’d be interested to know more about invisible fences. I haven’t done much research on shock collars and fences yet. I thought I might first throw it out to those of you that have them, and what you like and don’t like about them.

Do they work? Are they worth the money spent? In general, how do you feel about them?

My daughter has decided that Eli will have a shock collar before the summer is out! I’m not all that keen on them, but like I said, I haven’t really done the research.

Of course we like to make our summers fun and safe for ourselves and our dogs, but what is good for some is not for others.

So, before I go ahead and do more research and comparisons, I’d really like to hear from you. I’d like to be able to relax in my back yard or by the pool, without having to worry about the consequences of not having my little guy on a leash or runner.

 Though I would like to avoid the tangled mess! (Ugh) my main concern is

for the love of dogs today!
