5 1/2 month chased neighbor

I always walk my dog in my yard on the leash and he’s pretty well behaved however today his collar popped off (it’s a cheap petsmart one) and my neighbor was outside and he went running after her. She got inside before he could get to her but I really felt uncomfortable about that.

Now my neighbor is probably scared to death. First thing I’m doing is buying a new collar. However what ways should I teach him not to do this???

My dogs only do this if someone is on our property. I would start by establishing where your property ends by using a long lead or an e-collar, and simply recalling him when he gets to the edge of your property.

Work on recall. Sometimes a game called "puppy pingpong" is a good place to start. It's where you and another person stand about 25meters apart and call for the dog to come. Works best with a couple retractable leashes.

Go near a high distraction park, like a dog park. Dont go in but be right outside of it and work on "come".

I'd apologize to the neighbour as soon as you can, and tell her what you are doing so it won't happen again.

Recall and a solid down.

and I'm sorry but I'm laughing at your neighbor. You do need to apologize to her. even if her reaction to a puppy running towards her was over the top. Fears aren't rational so go smooth things over.

I agree. Go talk to your neighbor right away. Apologize and explain what happened. Maybe offer to let her meet your puppy. My puppy will go running towards people to, but if he got to them he would be happy and friendly.

But as Jax said, fears aren't rational. And you don't know her basis for the running.

But keeping on the good size with neighbors is important.

I 100 % agree with that. Having neighbors love me and my dog is so important in times like when my happy puppy just runs over to say hello, like a normal happy puppy will do!

Meanwhile, start up those puppy/dog classes to socialize your pup and begin the training. Makes it so much more fun and easier. Plus, nice to know how the training is progressing and exactly what your puppy will do in any/all new situations.

Why are you talking that way to huntergreen? He doesn't have anything to work on or apologize for.
