  1. My dog keeps running away

    Dog Training Forum
    My 23-month-old Jackapoo (Jack Russell/Poodle mix) has been to puppy classes, has had one-on-one training, yet he still runs away in the park.

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog escaped from his plastic travel crate. I have been crate training him for months in preparation for a plane ride. But he chewed the plastic part that was holding the latch. Since then, I bought a new crate and have been keeping him there at night and for 1-2.5 hour periods while I run...

  7. I guess it was inevitable

    General Dog Forum
    One of my biggest fears has been walking my dog in my neighborhood because there are so many dogs left in their yards all the time. Well, one finally got out while we were walking. Everyone is OK but it still was pretty scary at first. Lucky for us, the dog was friendly. I was too...
