How to Keep Your Dog in Your Yard
Many pet owners struggle with balancing freedom with safety when it comes to their pets. Not only do you want to keep your pet away from the dangers of the street, but you also want to keep your dog from accidentally damaging your neighbor’s property. To help protect your pet, we put together our top tips on how to keep your dog in your yard.
Why is my dog trying to escape my yard?
Before trying to change your pet’s behavior, it is important to understand why that behavior occurs. Dogs can leave their property for several reasons. Dogs are both active and curious. Those with a high prey drive, may be chasing after squirrels or cars.
In some cases, dogs that suffer from anxiety, boredom, or isolation may also try escaping their yard to find a more stimulating environment.
Ways to prevent your dog from escaping your yard.
There are several different methods to keeping your pet in your yard and away from the busy street. In some cases, a traditional fence or tie out could help to keep your dog contained in your yard. It is important to check the laws of your neighborhood and state. In some neighborhoods and states, tie-outs are not allowed.
