When I had a dog he would always run away too and he almost died one time when he tried to run away. He broke free of his rope but it was still hanging on his neck and he went through the trees on the hill in our backyard and was caught on one of the trees and was choking all night he couldn't even bark. Next morning we saw him choking on a tree and cut him off. He was too scared to run away for like 2 days.
hey I have like 5 dogs 2 are inside and 3 are outside 2 of the 3 are chained up because they like to jump the fence but they have long leashes always fresh water and food and very big dog houses so there's nothin wrong with it I even let them off for like 20 minutes a day but it's sort of like training your dog. either stay in the yard or get tied up all my other days went through the same process and OP if your dog isn't a threat to others and will just run around and the pound isn't an issue just call him in go back in the house he'll return in like 10 minutes.
at any rate 56, he didn't say he tied him to the tree. he said the rope that was on his collar somehow got wrapped around the tree and he had to let him loose cuz he was chocking. and even tho. besides, depending on where u live like maybe california, ur dog could survive perfectly happy outside. u kno like how they used to live before humans domesticated them.
60 my dogs are outside all the time with us. They get out at least five times a day and they play until they want inside. I guess I misspoke a little. I don't have a problem with outside dogs if they are NOT tied up. I feel that's unfair to them being tied to a tree or stake. If you have a fenced in yard that's perfect for them.
56: IMO, your situation could be more cruel than OP's. It's difficult to make sure big dogs get enough exercise if they're always inside. I hate seeing dogs spend all of their time tied up outside too, and if that's the case, it is neglect. Often results in an uncontrollable and aggressive animal, too, which is totally the owner's fault. However, some people have to tie their dogs up when they let them out to exercise alone. A number of uncontrollable factors could prevent OP from having a dog-proof fence, and I've seen lead rigs for dog runs that still give the dog room to run and play. Obviously someone was watching this dog. If the dog is always tied up, they'd probably move him to somewhere away from trees and such, to prevent having to bother with watching and freeing him all the time.
lol the dog got tired before you did? either ur really fit or u have a crap dog!
