Keeping Your Dog From Escaping Your Yard

Your dog may try to escape the yard since children or other dogs playing nearby tempt him. He may be seeking a mate. Or he may just be bored. Check the perimeter fence for any breeches that your dog could slip through. Ensure your dog isn’t digging at the bottom of the fence to escape. You may need to put blocks or chicken wire at the bottom of the fence to prevent escape. Keep the gate closed and latched at all times. Ensure that all family members and guests follow this simple rule. Make your yard a fun place for your dog. Offer him fun toys and exercise apparatus to play with. Don’t tie your dog off since this will just add to his boredom. Most importantly, don’t leave your dog alone in the yard for long periods of time. Get out there and play with your dog. For more information, contact your Greensboro, NC veterinarian.
