Losing your dog can be a frightening experience, it’s even more hair raising when you realise why your dog wants to bolt on a regular basis, STOP and think why?
As with any behaviour problem, the main goal is to figure out How On Earth?
The Dog Man can establish how you can meet your dog’s needs so helping to prevent your dog going for it! It makes sense that we can’t ask your dog why it’s got the idea of bolting off but it is possible to make an educated guess based on your dog’s behaviour and the patterns, it’s breed, likes, wants and needs and of course understanding the consequences to his actions so far.
Here are some ideas of what the problem might be?
Your dog is bored or you’re boring him
it’s not quite as simple as throwing your dog a Kong full of peanut butter
Your dog is looking for a mate
Unfortunately, it’s not just other dogs but people that your dog thinks are more fun. Be aware neutering or spaying your dog won’t necessarily prevent your dog from ever deciding to have a wander.
Your dog is on the hunt
This problem is more widespread in predatory driven dogs, quite simply it’s hardwired and needs a trainer with a wide skill set.
Your dog is frightened
Even the best and well-behaved dogs may try to escape or roam off. Unfortunately, the common problem is due to mishandling.
