How to Stop a Dog From Running Away to Something Exciting

How to stop a dog from running away and having door manners usually starts with understanding what your dog finds exciting that can be outside the door or what is exciting coming in the door.  Preventative measures can be taken to identify these exciting triggers and use a previously trained command such as a “down stay” command to teach impulse control and distraction proofing.

How to Stop a Dog From Running Away  Towards Something to Chase

Dog Door Manners

How to stop a dog from running away often times is a result of some dogs with high prey drive wanting to chase after a cat, a rabbit, or another dog.  Again using your previously taught “place” command, “down stay” command or even a “Sit” stay command will allow you the ability to keep your dog safe while you expose your dog to fast moving items like cars, bikes, joggers, cats, dogs, and other animals that your dog might like to chase.  Here again this works to teach impulse control and is great to get dogs more calm and more aloof when seeing things such as these.

How to Stop a Dog From Running Away From Something Fearful

Dog Training Door Manners

I get dozens of calls each year on the 4th of July because dogs fear the sounds of fireworks and they try to escape. Those dogs that have sound phobias such as fireworks or thunderstorms can often get so panicked that they break through crates, windows and doors to get away.  The 4th of July has the highest incidents of dogs running away and being found in shelters than any other day of the year.  Stay home with your pet, keep them safe.  take the time to practice gradual and systematic desensitization.

How to Stop a Dog From Running Away Because Boredom

When a dog sits at home most of the day and gets very little stimulation both mentally and physically, it is easy to get bored and run out the door for some fun and excitement.  It is important to teach door manners and to be sure that your dog gets at least 20 minutes or aerobic high intensity exercise each day.  Also just practicing training in short 5 minute sessions will keep your dog mentally stimulated.

How to Stop a Dog From Running Away To Something Novel

Dog Door Saftey

How to stop a dog from running away to something new and novel is similar to the dog that is bored.  Often dogs are overly excited when seeing something new as a result of a lack of socialization and a lack of adequate exposure to outside sights, smells, and sounds.  Teaching safe and reliable door manners to dogs that like to door dash is essential.  Also, when I get a new dog I make sure to expose the dog to EVERYTHING as soon as possible and often.  The more your dog is exposed to things in high energy environments the less your dog will care or find it interesting.

How to Stop a Dog From Running Away to Some Dog in Heat

Dogs in heat can be a problem especially if you live in an area with many dogs that have not been spayed or neutered.   A female in heat will be more apt to run away to find a mate when in heat.  An intact male is more apt to run away when there is a female near by that is in heat.  This is a great reason to teach your dog good door manners and to not door dash.

How to Stop a Dog From Running Away When Nature Calls

Phoenix Dog Training is Phenomenal!! From the very beginning we knew we were in good hands. They worked so well with our whole family. Getting the kids involved in the training was brilliant. We would definitely recommend this company.

I recently called Phoenix dog training to train my out of control hyper Australian Shepherd. The training was excellent and the service was A+ all the way. I have used two trainers before that could not help with the pulling on walks when any dog came by and jumping on guests. Now "Molly" knows to go to her "Place" when the door bell rings. Walks are now enjoyable. I can even take her off leash and she stays right with me. I can not thank you enough.Tyler Thompson

My wife and I highly recommend Phoenix Dog Training. Our dog, a Labrador Retriever/German Shepard Mix, (Mr. Pickles) was trained last summer and we could not be more happy with the results. Mr. Pickles has been an excellent dog ever since his training. Everyone that comes in contact with our dog is amazed by his obedience and uncanny maturity even though he is not even three years old. He has acted perfectly on an international flight in-cabin, in the grocery store, restaurants and practically any situation one can imagine. My wife and I have Phoenix Dog Training to thank for training our dog to be the most well behaved dog we have ever seen or met. Phoenix Dog Training understands dog behavior and knows how to train a dog to meet the needs of their owners. Phoenix Dog Training utilizes empathetic, efficient, and effective methodologies in training dogs and we give them an emphatic recommendation!

I was referred to Phoenix Dog Training by our Veterinarian because of our Boxer Max, and his aggression.Phoenix Dog Training and their Harvard schooled Animal Behaviorist did an incredible job helping myself and my family bring Max under control. We realize we will need to manage Max's behavior for as long as he is with us, but now we have the skills and the tools to keep Max and everyone happy and safe. Thank you for all the great training help and support with our dog Max.

I have always trained all of my dogs myself. I have never had a dog I could not train. My current dog Jasper is the exception. I truly thought my dog had a mental problem. Thanks to Phoenix Dog Training I no longer think Jasper is mental. Jasper just needed his owner trained. I would recommend Phoenix Dog Training to anyone needing professional dog training.

I am so grateful I found Phoenix Dog Training. I live up in North Scottsdale and have a large yard. We get a lot of wild animals that come onto our property. Coyotes, Havelina, Bob Cats Mountain Lion, you name it. The problem I was having was my dog Skip would not come when called. No matter what we did he would not come when called. He would call me when there were no distractions. He would come when nothing was going on. But up another dog or another person or another animal is there, he will not come for anything! I have tried several other dog trainers in Scottsdale. They all promised me they could get my dog to come, and they did a great job getting my dog to listen to me when there were no distractions. But if there's another animal, they were not able to get my dog to come when called. Out of frustration and skeptical, I called Phoenix dog training. They said they had a money back guarantee. I figured if there was ever a time they would have to honor their money back guarantee it would be with myself and my dog Skip. To my absolute amazement, the dog trainer from Phoenix Dog Training was able to get Skip to come with the distraction of another dog he brought with him within about 3 minutes! It was absolutely crazy!!! No one had been able to produce any results, and here they have skip coming when called with another dog around, skip would normally go crazy. But this time he was coming when called! I would definitely recommend Phoenix Dog Training!!! They saved my dog from being eaten from a Mountain Lion I'm sure!!!

I really want to thank you guys. Phoenix Dog Training has made my dogs life and my life so much better. I get to finally enjoy my dog. Walks are now a pleasure. She sits and stays when I tell her. When I call her to me, now she comes. I love the "place" command and that seems to be her favorite command too. I'm looking forward to the Polishing and Maintenance classes that Phoenix Dog Training offers after our completion of our private at home dog training lessons. Thank you again.

Phoenix Dog Training is AMAZING! They rehabilitated my aggressive PitBull when 3 other trainers failed and told me the only option was to euthanize my dog. Boy am I glad I did not listen to the other trainers and hired a real Dog Behaviorist. It is very different working with a professional Dog Behaviorist than just a Dog Trainer. It was worth the money and the time to save my dogs life. Definitely hire Phoenix Dog Training.

So much better but still a ways to go and now we have the knowledge and help we needed. We also know that anytime we have a question or issue that Bill will be there to help. Highly recommend.

My wife and I are more than happy with the work that Bill did for us, and our dog. We reached out to him for one-on-one training, frustrated and concerned about her reactive behavior. His knowledge of dog behavior is extensive, and his ability to impart that knowledge was exceptional. We learned more in one day, than we did in 6 months of group training with another organisation. Bill guided us through the training, and explained how we should progress through to maintenance, so that our dog's progress could continue. We've received many positive comments about our dog's improved behavior and we highly recommend Bill. He's given us the knowledge and confidence that we need to work with our dog.
