1. If you have a fenced yard, with a gate, what do you mean by, "rushes the gate"? Why is it open?
We have to go in and out the gate of the yard when we leave and enter our home. She will charge through the gate when she knows someone is distracted with something else.
2. You purposely leave the gate open, then zap her?
As training only to not leave the yard with out permission. We don't leave the gate wide open, but have one of the kids go through the gate slowly etc. She is so darn smart she knows who doesn't pay so close attention. My kids are 15 to 4 so it just happens.
3. She is training your other dogs? Who's in charge?
I'm not sure what the question is here. When the bc rushes out often times the other dog is able to follow her out. Not always, but the other dog never ran off until she started following her.
4. She was trained for 5 years and doesn't respond to you? How is that possible?
Oh am I the only person with a dog who does not obey completely when off leash or not in the show ring? She is brilliant and so smart. She gets it in her head she wants to chase the deer, she's going to wait till the time is right and chase deer. She won't take off after them when she knows she's being watched. She's just gone like a bullet and she ignores voice commands. Yes, she has had 5 years of training and is brilliant in the show ring.
5. At almost 7 years old do you think she will be easy to rehome?
Having worked in a shelter and as a vet tech I have no illusions she will be easy to find another home for her. I also know when something is not working. That's why I came here for some help. I was hopeful for some concrete ideas of things I have not tried.
