I'm back! xD and I have a new escape artist
 
Hey everyone, It's been a while but it's great to finally have time to be back! I missed all the awesome advice and loving community that is KH,
I've been unable to come on as of late for family issues and just not having enough time, cause of my Junior year and looking at college.

In January we got a new puppy, an Akita named Shasta, named after mount Shasta in Washington. She's quite the escape artist and has bolted through our invisible fence twice!

(pictures of her)



She is such a handful but worth all the effort of grooming, feeding, walking, and... sometimes chasing around the neighbor's yard to get her back home. I am smitten like a kitten with a ball of yarn!

What a sweetie! She'll be good company too. My DD's Jack Russell will run the invisible fence if he's after a rabbit; his collar's on Fry Daddy, Fry! setting and he just doesn't care when he's motivated. Are Akitas the same way?

Akita's are a very stubborn, very large breed, she runs through the fence when she's motivated or she feels the shock and not the vibrations of the collar if the collar is too loose... my dad had to tighten the collar after yesterday's scare... man she can run! I had to catch her by her tail yesterday

I think you need a real fence....a high one! Cute dog though!

Akita's are wonderful, strong dogs and yours is adorable. What's her name?
Wow, Junior year. Have fun thinking and looking at colleges and try not to get too stressed over the choices.
