How to Keep Your Dog From Running Away

Few things are more devastating to a pet owner than discovering that their furry friend has run away. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to keep your pooch safely at your side.

Always make sure you have your dog on a leash when you go outside, unless you’re opening the backdoor and the yard is fenced in.

Speaking of the fence, inspect it at least once a year to make sure there aren’t any new holes your dog can escape through. If he’s a digger, you may have to inspect the fence more than once a year.

Train your dog to sit by the door instead of bolting outside every time it’s opened. If you expect a lot of people to be coming and going, keep your pooch in a kennel.
