the whole thing happened so fast, seconds. by the time we realized what was happening the kid was already almost to the tracks. our dog was also off the tracks to the side of the street. when i first realized the kid was running towards her i did call her but not in the loudest voice and she didn't immediately come. took a second call but by that time she had already barked at him and he was running away. then she ran towards us. she was scolded for her failure to immediately come under distraction and she'll have her Ecollar on next time off leash and she's not allowed to have as much distance from us anymore.

she has always been fine with immediate recalls from other distractions, dogs to squirrels and everything in between. we never dealt with someone charging and screaming. in a sense i'm kinda proud she has a good protective instinct.
