When A Dog Gets Out — 6 Comments

  1. I think we all have different levels of tolerance for letting our dogs get away. Mine is close to zero, where lots of other people worry less!

  2. Our neighbor has a chihuahua mix. Abby is definitely a little escape artist! She sees an opening and she goes for it. She heads off into the woods but always comes back. She is so small though that you can’t help but worry about her.

  3. I know what you mean about doors! We used to have a Basenji who was an escape artist. In that house, we had a mudroom in front of the front door and so she never got out when we were home, but once she eluded our housesitters and led them on a chase through the woods near our house for quite a long time.

  4. Our dog loves to go out also whenever the door is opened, tried to go out to the streets we are lucky that he doesn’t go far away, he tried to come back or sometimes we just chase him. We just need to be careful not to leave the door open.

  5. I know the feeling, (glad the blog is back), IWe added a fenced area to the side of a new addition and have put two gates in, one for walking traffic and one for vehicles if needed, but recently went on a vacation with a neighbor taking care of my darlings…so I took bicycle chain/cables, added padlocks and still worried that they might get out. Mine love the new yard, but they are house dogs (really think they are “people”) . One is a 15 year old Shi-Poo…..nearly blind, but still dictating to the rest of us, and the other is a rescued Poo/Pom who is about a year, who has rejuvenated the whole household…therefore the fence…the older wanders and can’t find his way back, and the younger moves like greased lightning….and we are too old to chase….either ot them…

  6. That must have been so scary! I have a rottie as well. She is about 2 1/2. Not that she has ever gotten loose, but it makes me nervous to think of all the possibilities that could happen to them; especially since they are rotties. Mine is a big love bug, but so many people are so afraid of them. I’m glad she made it home safe and that you rewarded her big time for coming back to you. So often people are mad when their dogs take off or get loose and they yell the moment they see their dog, making it not such a nice thing to either come back to or be caught by their humans.
