Running all over the neighborhood
How do you handle this situation. Gyrff is usually always on his leash. We have a large yard and I generally keep him off the leash when we eat outside on the deck. He hangs with us when we eat. Today (and lately) he slowly takes to the woods and then proceeds to run through the neighborhood and won't come back! As if there could be anyplace better than our house. Anyway, when I finally catch him, what is the best thing to do? I put him in his crate right now, but I know that you aren't supposed to use the crate for any type of punishment.
I know some of you will say that he shouldn't have the opportunity to get into the situation in the first place, but since it happened, what is the best course of action?
