We have a puppy that we got from a pound. He is about 7 months old. When he can, he bolts from home. No matter how much you call him, he's not going to stop or come back. We've only had him for 3 weeks so he's new to us but in other ways we seem to be bonding. He also gets along very well with our other puppy who we've had for about 3 months. We have never had a puppy run away like this before. Anyone have training tips or ideas on dealing with this guy? He has been fixed.
Thanks in advance.

Obedience class. And if you need to wait for a start date, be more careful and use your leash. You have another puppy as well? How old? What made you choose to get another puppy at this time?

She is A LOT better now (she's 18 months old) but I've been working with her since she was just 13 weeks old to come when called (I got her at 13 weeks). I do not have a fenced yard so she still gets tied when she got out potty. She knows to wait at the door to get clipped and doesn't bolt until after I give her the command "go potty" (which is given after she's clipped).

My best advice, and I am not a trainer, is to buy a long lead and work with the dog to come back when called. I use a 50 foot lead and train outside where there's lots of distractions to try to make it as real as possible. Also, teaching the dog to wait at the door for a command to go out wouldn't hurt.

Good Luck with whatever you decide to do.
