Say you live in a rural setting at the end of a road that gets almost 0 traffic of any kind. You have a few farm animals. You expect and encourage your dog to raise cain and let you know if there are people or cars on your road, and to help drive off any stray dogs or predators- which the dog does with enthusiasm. Now say someone starts riding their bicycle down your road daily with their 2 off leash dogs trailing behind ( no laws against this here ).
At this point your dog has had weeks to " practice " " driving off " this person and their dogs when they come down the road ( your dog is doing this from inside a fenced area ). My question- would it be unreasonable in your dogs mind to expect him to NOT attempt to run the person and dogs off when your dog is on an unfenced portion of your property and you're with him, AND you have no plans to curb the same behaviour while he is in the fenced area without you?
I can teach him not to go after these particular dogs while we're in the unfenced portion but not sure what the backlash would be if any considering he'll still be allowed to raise cain over them when he's in the fenced portion without me.
