i've just got back from a nightmare walk with zeus. let him off lead as i always do on a secure field, and he's just ran off through the gate after a car. he's never shown any interest in chasing cars before. birds and sqirrels yes, but never cars. lucky enough i have trained him to sit as soon as he gets to the kirb otherwise i think he would have carried on going. a good job it's a really quiet road to. so this week i'm going to enrole him in some training classes and see about getting him snipped. his recalls usually really good, i'm thinking it maybe down to his age. he's 1 in a week.

Hiya

Neutering will always be a good idea especially as he is now 1 yr old. It will ensure he is less interested in any female dogs that could be in season in your area (hence he might run off to "find them")

Have a look here at a trainers methods on recall training:

he will be getting booked in, to get neutered in the next couple of weeks. i don't think he would be happy having to be kept on the lead all the time. and i don't want to take the risk of him running off again. i'm also looking at flyball training classes in the area since i think he would really benifit from that also. and thank you chris i will have a go at the long line technique this week.

When we first got Axel his recall was VERY bad D'oh! Karen told us about this method of training and it worked brilliantly for us. In the main Axels recall is really good now but as he is a traffic chaser we still walk with a trailing line in some area's. Good luck Thumb
