I got a scare this afternoon and was ultimately proud of Becca. We were walking by the river, she was off leash. Becca ran around a tree after something gray, I thought it was a squirrel. They looped back around by me and ran up a hill, it was a gray fox kit. I about had a heart attack and immediately called for her to come. It took four "BECCA COME" (10-15 seconds maybe), but Becca came flying back. I praised her to high heaven, treated and leashed.

This is the one area in my neighborhood where Becca has been able to be off leash. Now I don't know if I dare to continue. I am proud of Becca however, I couldn't see her while she was returning. If she was at my feet at the at the fourth repeat, she had to have turned by the second.

She sounds like a very good girl! I would say most corgis would chase after a smaller prey animal or a kit/cub/fawn that is smaller than them indeed. But I would have been terrified as well!

What a good girl, and clearly you've done a great job with training! If there is not a road nearby, I would probably try her off-leash again because it seems unlikely the foxes will stick around once a dog has wandered into their turf!

oh my, that is so intense! i'm so glad becca was a good girl and came right back. it's always scary to get tested like that because recall is very tricky. glad it worked out for you both!

What a scare indeed!  You should be proud of her for coming back.  I don't know if mine would have given up the chase.
