Puppy Won't Come Back When Playing

To start off with I had a girl Dachshund for 14 years and she's passed away. I've recently got a 6 month old boy Dachshund. I got him free from a neighbor down the street from me. I consider myself very very fortunate because I've been praying to get me another Dachshund one day to help me with the grief of losing her. Well I got him a few months ago when he was about 3 months old.


He is now 6 months old and I've never owned a boy dog nor a boy Dachshund. He is a very hyper dog, but a very good dog. He has a great personality, is very loving and has to be everywhere I am. I can't even walk out of one room to the other without him having to come with me. That's fine by me, but when I let him outside to play, he does not mind me hardly at all once outside. He loves to be outside and would be all the time if he could. I do let him out often. He wants to run to the neighbor's house which they don't mind, but I'm trying to teach him to stay in yard. He will run to the road also and I'll punish him by bringing him right back inside for not minding. Telling him no, no, no. He just goes wild outside and just doesn't mind me.

I don't have a fenced yard so I don't know what to do when I let out to play to get him to mind me. He's very hyper and wants to play a lot all day long, inside and outside too. I need some advice please on what I can do. A fence is not an option right now. We are renting this place til we can move next year. Thx.

Start whistle training him. When he comes to the whistle give him a treat.
Also, take him around every day on a leash before you let him out to play. Let him mark the boundaries of your yard by peeing. Dogs have to learn the boundaries of their territory. Visual markers also help. Can you pound in stakes and tie a bright string or outdoor clothesline around the property line? It won't physically keep him in, but he can see the boundaries.
This is a matter of training and time.

How about one of the electronic fences with the collar the dog wears? They dont always have to be buried. They train the dog to stay in the property line.


They are not inexpensive, but you can take it with you to the new place. Dachshunds are very willful puppies. Keep your sense of humor and don't forget to smile often.

I'd use the training method before getting an electric fence. The problem with these fences is that they provide a negative reaction when dogs get near the fence. We want them to learn to simply stay in the yard. However, they often learn that the person or other dog they are running to greet or see on the other side of the fence is dangerous or bad, since they get a negative feedback each time. They can become fearful of people, other dogs, etc.

Training a dog is very worthwhile. You get the benefit of bonding with your dog. It will learn to stay by your side on walks even if the leash breaks. The dog will become a companion, not just a hyper puppy running around doing his own thing.


Just food for thought.
