This is a discussion topic for the Ask the Experts Q&A below. Does your dog keep running away, returning hours later dirty and smelly? Is fencing the yard the only solutions? Please add your experiences and opinions below.

My dog does indeed disapear for hours at a time (he seems to be able to jump our fence no problem even though its about four times his height) but comes back clean and happy so I just let him be. He has his name and phone number on a tag and I havent received any complaints so just like to think that he is out having fun with some friends, or maybe a girlfriend............. My neigbour has her dog on a pretty short chain in the garden which seems to keep him home but he doesnt look pleased.

I'm worried about my miniature daschund puppy, Jasmine, from running out the front door and never to return. Luckily, when she runs out I manage to catch her and she tends to stay within the area of my house. I've gotten my other 2 dogs to stay put when the door is wide open by loudly saying "no" whenever they try to walk out. This always works well because dogs usually want to please their owner. Hopefully it'll work for Jasmine!
