Stray dogs are, unfortunately, a common sight. You may have noticed that some of them are completely in tune with "street life" while others are completely out of tune. It is certain that the majority of wandering dogs belong to the category of strays, but there are also "fugitives" who escape the supervision of the owner for various reasons, from the call of nature to boredom. What is the fate of the "fugitive"? Unnecessary wandering and dangers such as being injured, lost or even chasing frightened children or other animals.
One of the most common ways a dog gets lost is when they escape their backyard dog fences. Either by jumping over it or digging under the fence their way out or even escaping forgotten open gates! There have been plenty of times when people found dogs wandering their neighborhood and mistaken them for strays, when really the dog has just escaped the yard. Surely the safest place for a dog is his home, so how can we keep a dog from running out of the yard without a fence?
There are several reasons why your dog may try running out of the yard and the reason is definitely not that they no longer love you. Why do they keep leaving, causing you desperation looking for them on the streets? Here are six possible reasons for this.
Why your dog is making a run for it?
- They love their walk. Dogs are known to go crazy for walks. And if the walk during the day did not satisfy them, they will find a way to "kick" it. There are, in fact, breeds that love to go out so much that they keep digging or climbing fences and leave constantly. For example Huskies.
- Dogs are descendants of wolves. Do not forget that dogs are descendants of wolves, which travel miles every day. And your dog still has some of these instincts. Something may have caught their attention, Search, exploration and hunting are in their blood. This means that if something catches their attention they will run away to do their own exploration as a real detective!
- It is not sterile. Male dogs that have not been neutered tend to pop it in search of a mate.
- Dogs can get bored. For a dog that is bored, the outside world is a challenge. If you do not have time to deal with it and your pet does not relax with his play, he will find interest away from home.
- Something scared them. A dog that is afraid of snoring or fireworks, may panic and start running in an unknown direction.
So summarizing, the result is more than 10 million dogs getting out of fences and get lost each year in the United States, and one out of three pets will get lost during its lifetime!!!
