just a little story of what happened this morning to show that no dog can be totally trusted.. doesnt matter if husky or not..
i was training as usual with friends at the forest.. we are sitting there afterwards.. bit of banter mug of tea etc.. and a loose little terrier style dog came plodding along..looking totally scared and lost... all our dogs were away in the vans so we managed to coax the dog to us. and then get lead on.. we had look about for owner ..no sign. sat for a while waiting to see if someone appeared. but still nothing so we then phoned the number on his tag.. which was common sense on the owners part ..putting mobile number on it.. reason i say that is co's it suddenly dawned on me.. my girls all have the house number on... well if one of mine was missing i would not be at home waiting so the only phone with me would be my mobile... DOH !!!! so thats soon to be changed ... anyway owner contacted ..yes dog is missing.. as the owner lived on my route out of forest i loaded him into my van.. on meeting owner some 2 miles away from the forest.. he said " wow he has never tried to get out before in the 10 years we have lived here".
luckily for this dog and his owner he happened to find us husky owners that are mad and in forest at silly o'clock on a sunday morning. and care enough to get the dog..unlike some people that would have just ignored him..
so my point is... your dog could be the best dog in the world .. for years .. but one day just one day.... and thats all it would take..
BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY !!!!!
