How to Stop Dog from Running Away
Sometimes when dog training collarwill always be useful. Dogs can easily roam freely on their own, they do not have to form packs, but occasionally other may join the group and they run together. This does not mean that the pack could be any more dangerous than the single dog roaming on its own. Any animal that is free on the street should be approached with extreme caution unless you are familiar with that animal. Dogs normally roam because they are bored and they need to explore out of interest. If you were to exercise your dog every morning and every evening then this should reduce the amount of escapes that your dog need to make.
If the dog has a lot of energy, you will need to wear the dog out so it sleeps all night. You need to check your property for gaps in fences or places where can escape. Do not underestimate your dog because it could escape from any small place around the yard. If you have bins up against the fence the dog may jump up onto the bin and over the fence.
TO STOP YOUR DOG FROM ESCAPING.
Before you first receive your dog check to make sure that the fencing is adequate to keep the dog in.
- Some dog breeds like Bull Terriers, Blue Healers, Cross Breeds and Kelpie can jump to enormous heights for their size, so you need to have a fence that is the right height according to the breed as well as no holes for the dog to climb or dig through.
- Some products available on the market can be purchased to restrain your dog on the property like the invisible fencing. These fences can be expensive but easily outweigh the cost of a boundary fence.
- Give your dog plenty of exercise morning and night this will be able to tire out your dog so it may sleep all night.
- For a temporary arrangement until you can stop your dog from escaping you may have to tie your dog up at night or when you go out. If you have to do this make a running line for the dog and give the dog adequate shelter and water for the period it is to be restrained.
- Keeping a dog tied up for long periods will also cause behavioural problems like over excitement when you arrive home or excessive barking.
