How do I keep my dog from running outside? I've been trying to train and block him, but he always somehow manages to sneak by. I'm almost wondering whether I should get a dog tracker in case he manages to get through the front gate.
Teach him to sit automatically when you touch the doorknob, and progress to opening the door with him holding a sit. Teach him a release cue, such as "alright" to tell him when he CAN go through the door.
