the dogs made a run for it.... with four dogs already a block away before you could blink,, I grabbed my truck keys and took off after them. They were right around the corner in a yard with a lady standing there...fyi, my four dogs are two lhasa apsos, a six month old GSD and a two month old Goldendoodle...not an aggressive bone in any of them.....
-------- four dogs bolting , running as a pack , sure don't seem to have any connection to you , just a pack of dogs .
they didn't just exit the yard and hang around investigating the other side , and I am sure that you yelled and tried them to come back - but they blew you off and ran for the next county, ran so fast that a blink of an eye later they were far enough to need the truck , probably with no thought of stop running .
You are lucky you got off as freely as you did . The dogs could have been hit by a car , rushed by an aggressive dog, met with a dog on that property , shot . At least the guy called authorities instead of taking things in to his own hands.
Beyond all that this you are missing out on a good relationship with the dogs. The pets have pets . You provide , feed and clean .
Want to see how much more rewarding it can get . Then at least take the two youngest additions and start giving them time away from the "pack" . Develop one on one connection. TRAIN them .
