Why does my dog run away?
When a dog always tries to escape, it is dangerous and can be troublesome for the owner who may be wondering why the dog does not want to stay. Let’s take a look at the main reasons why dogs try to escape.
Your dog may be bored:
Some dogs are energetic and adventurous, and need a lot of stimulation time and exploration to be happy. If they do not have lots of interactive play times, play or hiking, or if they are alone on their own for long periods, these dogs may be bored and try to escape when they get a chance.
If you think your dog may be running away from boredom, increase the number of play sessions you engage with each day. Its marches are longer or longer and give it plenty of time to stop and smell everything.
When you are not at home, try leaving a puzzle game for your dog to work on. These games usually contain some sweets or a dry cable, and the dog must work on them to get them to tell stories. They are great for fighting boredom and keeping dogs mentally sharp.
Proper dogs are more likely to run
Dogs that are not settled or neutralized will likely try to escape from those that exist. This is especially true for male dogs because they have a campaign to find females and teach their territory as a message to other male dogs.
Dogs try to escape from bad conditions
Dogs that leave outside without sufficient water or adequate shelter from the sun, cold or bad weather may try to escape from any possible way, including digging under a fence. If you leave your dog outside without supervision, be sure to have a suitable shelter for wind and sun, and that it always gets clean and pure water.
Training your dog to come when called
Training, in general, is excellent for dogs. It helps fight boredom, keeps them mentally engaged, and increases the bond between them and their loved ones. If you have a dog trying to escape, increase training sessions with him. Use positive reinforcement to help him succeed in learning commands.
Specifically, spend longer training your dog to come when you call. Make sure you are always positive and get back to you something very rewarding by using a lot of praise and treatment.
When your dog improves on your arrival, add your attention to the training. Ask someone else to do something interesting nearby when you call your dog. Give plenty of praise and treatment when it comes to you. If he goes to the confused person, ask them to stay away from him and ignore him. Over time, your dog will learn that being with you is more fun and positive than anything you might want to explore.
