How to Stop JRT from Running Out The Door
My JRT is now 9 months old. His running out the door when your not looking is getting intolerable. Thought of electric fencing however my driveway is paved, I don't have much to put underground. When he starts running he thinks it's a game. "It's catch me if you can." I don't smack him or scold him other than "you're bad" because he knows once he is caught. He's run across busy roads, you can get as close as approx. 2 feet and it's almost like he's laughing at you.
Last weekend there were 4 different people trying to help me get him. Finally one person asked if he liked dogs. He went and got his dog and sure enough they played for a bit and I told the man, get your dog to go into backyard otherwise I knew it wouldn't last. We finally cornered him and I brought him home safe and sound. I'm afraid one of these days he won't be coming home. Can anyone out there help to rectify this problem. It happens at least once a week. Its not as though he doesn't get walked, he's the baby of the house (spoiled) in everyway. What can we do??
Thankyou and I sincerely hope to hear from someone!!
