This is nothing short of a miracle. My neighbors who first acquired Reilly had real problems with him trying to run away. He often took off and it took several people to hunt him down and carry him back (one of the main reasons that I finally became Reilly's owner). His penchant for taking off was one of the many reasons that I turned to Bark Busters. As you know, I am a huge fan of Kurt Schroeder already. And, I have only been working with Reilly half the time lately on his training. Tonight, while I was at work, one of the sitters who watches my handicapped sister, was letting Reilly out to do his business, and he slipped out of her reach, squeezed through the fence and took off. But, here is the miracle, he never went further than the front yards of the neighboring 4 houses. He kept running up to the front of my house, but she couldn't get him to come in. After about 40 minutes of this, a neighbor helped her corral Reilly back into the backyard. By this time, I came home as she was trying to get him to come in from the backyard. I only had to call him twice and he came right to me. That in itself was miracle, seeing as he had been running for almost an hour. The major miracle is that he didn't take off as he used to do. If that had happened 8 months ago, he would have been long gone. The fact that he stayed close to the house all that time says to me that, while he was taking advantage of some freedom, he knew enough that he was safe here to stay close by. Believe me when I tell you that, for Reilly, this was a huge accomplishment. I praised him and hugged him because his knowing enough to come back to my house was a major accomplishment in his training and development. Thanks again, Kurt!
