my rescue dog jack was starved and cruelly treated for the first two years of his life i have had him for nine weeks the only major thing he has done is rip to bits my neighbours conservatory sofa to bits for the first week he cowered and crawled around on his tummy with lots of love he has gained inconfidence and is super with my two year old granddaughter. he displays seperation anxiety even when iam in the house by whining and scratching the carpets he is an intelligent sprocker off the lead he will come back two out of three times given a dog biscuit but then on his next walk he will blatantly ignore me and run off crossing a beck to get across to run amok in another field he knows he the rules but refuses to respond twice now i have had to crossa the swollen river because of the rain to get him back on the lead help
oing sit and stay shouting jack come here when we go on our 3 walkstting a treat when he obeys .goes off scratching in different rooms even when i am sitting in sitting room stops when i shout jack stop scratching when he comes back i say no in a raised voice and put him on his lead he knoes he has been naughty this is when we r on our walk but main worry is i have to go and get him as he totally refuses to come back eg wading over a beck and running after him until i get him on the lead. does not get atreat in these circumstances. on an hours walk call him about4 times.
