My Schnauzer runs away
We have an 8-month-old miniature Schnauzer. We have a picket fence that he can fit through. When we let him out he runs through the fence and we have to catch him. I'm worried he's going to run out in our street and get hit by a passing car. How do you train a Schnauzer not to run away? We have have a Golden Retriever that is his buddy. We thought the other dog would help keep him in the yard but it does not.
NOTE FROM LINDA AND MAX: Are you able to fit some chicken wire to the fence as a short-term measure to stop him getting out until you can train him out of it?
We know of some people that have used electronic collars to stop their dogs doing this, but these are controversial. Better to try and train him out of it.
