Default Dog Kennels

The kennel up the road from us (luckily far enough not to hear the dogs) twice this past month has had dogs dig under their kennel fence and escape. Currently an owner of a blond lab and kennel staff has been trying to capture the dog. At times the dog can be seen in the farmer fields (corn, tobacco, ginseng, soybean) but the dog won't to be caught. If you were the owner of such a dog, what coarse of action would you take?

This place......http://www.familypetresort.com/ opened up about 2 weeks ago is our industrial park about 2 miles from Philadelphia International Airport. I guess its a good place to drop off your pets if your flying somewhere. On Friday their were flyers on our car windshields offering a $2000.00 reward for a lost dog. Some little rat breed had dug himself under the fence and escaped Wednesday night. Between the foxes and 40lb ground hogs in the fields around here that little guy is gone......all six pounds of him

If the dog digs himself out of the kennel and won't come on command he would tote an ass whoopin.

I would then quickly follow up with some obedience training and another ass whoopin.

After all that, I would find a kennel that has a concrete floor. Seriously, what kind of respectable dog kennel does not have concrete floors?

Should he come to anyone's command, or just the owners'?

The farmer should have shot it already. The owner is lucky.

But back to the original question, I am sure there is someone who would trap it for a fee. The thing should get hungry at some point.

With all the irrigation ponds around the dog won’t go thirsty that’s for sure, but food would definitely be another matter. So far this is the third day.

As far as I know the dog is not coming to anyone's command!

A raw peice of meat on a circle hook with a medium action combo. Cast that thing out there and wait for the dog to pick it up. When you hear the clicker start to click give it a few seconds for the dog to pick it up and start to run off with the meat. Put the tip of the rod down flip the drag and set the hook. The dog will fight for a few minuts and soon tire out and at that point its pretty easy fight.

Someone I knew had a dog they adopted earlier that day (lab mix) escape, and evade capture for about three months. This was in a small town where many knew of the dog and tried to capture it many times during those three months without sucess. Eventually someone ran it into a fenced in area. Now the dog comes when called when off the leash.

Garett, Don't use the .22 , they can ricochet really bad . It helps to step up to a small Cal. Super Sonic round or a Glaser Safety slug .
We don't want to Kill the Opossum behind it .

I have thought a little more about this ...........There may be a reward on this pooch . We may have to use the Tranquillizer dart and wait for the cash.
