Herding Cars

by Diane

We have a wireless electric fence for our Aussie, Riley, who is just over a year old. She also has a doggy door which gives her free reign of the house and yard while we are away.

When we pull out of the driveway, she starts running around the cars - how many ever are parked there - and then continues to circle the one that is backing out of the driveway, biting at the tires.

We are worried that she will eventually get hurt doing this.

Any suggestions?

Overwhelmed Aussies
by: Anastasia Collett

The most important thing to do first is to replace the doggy door. My Aussie stays in the utility room. To make sure she dosen't 'jump' whenever she gets over-excited when my relatives, family friends and my friends come round my dad has put up one of those safety gates. I'd advise it if you put one of those behind the door, so when you open the door, there should be a safety gate there so hat your aussie dosen't go outside and dosen't bite at the car tyres. I hope this works!

Bad Advise!!

How would locking her up in a small space possibly help her?? That's not good advice.
