I am the owner of a Jack Russell, beautiful nature, loves people and dogs. She is a rescue dog nearly 4 years old, we sent her to school and got the basics right. Good "come" etc. We have one huge problem, she hates kites. She barks, yelps and makes horrendous noises at kites. We are very near Epsom Downs which is a paradise for dogs and all other creatures. Kite flyers love it too. We love walking on the Downs which is a misery when the kites are flying. What can I do to get this problem resolved? I have tried taking her near the kites and then back away, nothing helps. If allowed, she runs towards them and barks running around in circles under the kites. My fear is she would tear one to bits and I would then have a very big bill to pay! I have no idea what she thinks they are! Other dog owners say what a lot of noie from a small dog! Otherwise she is a fantastic dog!
