My Dog Sneaks Out The Door

I hope someone could give me advice. My little min pin sneaks out the door everytime we open it. I live a few houses down from a school so my road is very busy. I'm very worried my dog is going to get hit by a car. What could I do to keep her in the house?

Is there a room without an outside door where you could close her in with a baby gate? You could keep a leash by each door and put it on her before you open the door. That is what I did after my lab, Ma Barker, got hit by a car, but recovered. Hope this helps

I have a dog that will run, too. I never open the front door unless he is in a secure place, i.e. other room or yard, or on a leash I keep attached to a piece of furniture. Better safe than sorry!

Everyone who comes to your house, or lives there, must be involved. No outside door should be opened unless the dog is under control, ever. It takes only once to be killed by a car, or get lost. She depends on you for her life. You all have to be smarter than the dog. After awhile she will be trained. You could also take her to obedience school. It sounds like she needs it.

Hi,

We have cats that try to sneak out. We keep spray bottles by the doors, and spray them with it if they get too close to the door.
