What to Do If Your Dog Escapes Outside

It doesn’t matter how close of an eye you keep on your pooch, he can easily find his way outside. What should you do if your dog escapes?

It’s important not to panic. If you come rushing out of the house, running and yelling, your dog will likely respond by bolting off even faster. Stay calm and try and call him back to your side with a treat.

If that doesn’t work and you lose sight of him, give him a little time. Many dogs will return home after they’ve had their fill of exploring the neighborhood.

If your dog has been gone for a few hours, you should probably go and look for him. If you turn up empty handed after your search, it might be time to canvas the neighborhood or put up lost posters.
