Is your dog like a bullet out the front door?  Does he jump the fence in a single bound? There are many reasons why dogs escape. The first step in changing your dog’s tendency to flee is to find out if he is going to something or away from something.

Case A

  1. If your dog seems to have fun when he escapes (gets to visit other dogs, children, etc)…
  2. If your dog is left on his own for long periods of time (even if he has plenty of toys and space to play)…
  3. If you are limited in the social time you spend with your dog (such as petting, playing, brushing, training, etc)…
  4. If your dog is young and has lots of energy…

Your dog may have ”lonely heart behavior.” Here are some tips:

  1. Take your dog on walks daily.
  2. Enroll in an obedience class so your dog will learn how to control himself.
  3. Give your dog more “people” time, such as petting, playing, practicing obedience skills
