Dogs chasing bikes!!!!!

6 posts in this topic

I've got a blackmouth cur and a lab, both around 3 years old. They constantly run along the back privacy fence barking at bikes that ride on the other side. I've corrected them out there by catching them in the act, but they don't stop. It drives me nuts.

Any suggestions?

electric shock collar. Might be a little expensive for two dogs but I promise you it'll definetly get there attention and think twice about chasing kids on bikes.

I forgot to mention that I have used the shock collars. They don't seem to remember the shock once they see a bike.

The shock collar is the only way to solve it. If you can spend an afternoon with it, I would think it can be taken care of. Have some kids ride their bike by, and the very second the dogs take off running or barking, give them a little knick. Next time the kids come by, do it again. And over and over, increasing in intensity every couple times. Eventually the dogs will learn that every time they bark or chase a bike, they are going to get zapped. 9 times out of 10 a problem with a dog is due to inconsistency.

i kinda had the same problem but it was with the neighbors coming home. everytime they arrived my dog would take off to greet them. my best attack was to catch him right when the turned to come down the street. When he saw them i would make him sit and if he so he flinched towards their way i would bust him with the collar. Now when they come home he sits and watches them. Every once in a while he'll break and when he does ill crank the intensity and then pop him one good time and he halts and marches his way back to where he should be. it took and while and he's still not perfect but the collar has deffinately been the best tool.

Put the dog on a lead and at heal.

Have the kids ride by. The INSTANT the dog starts to react correct the dog. The idea is to stop his focus on the riders immediately. Repeat over and over.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
