One of the houses we regularly walk past has a row of flags up to mark where the electronic fence wire runs under the grass. On our most recent walk I saw a tennis ball lying only about a foot outside the area marked by the flags. I felt very bad for the dog. He must have rolled his tennis ball over the line. Then he must have just sat there torn between wanting to go get his ball and the knowledge he would get zapped if he did. It seemed very unfair. I nudged the ball back inside the fence line.

Galen, not impeded by a shock collar, decided a different solution was in order. He trotted past the flags, grabbed the ball, and carried it home with us. Sigh.

Aww that is so sad for the dog who couldn't get his ball back. At least Galen took it out of sight and ended the torture.
