I, too, was frustrated by this. My solution was to time her run outside to right before she was going to eat. So, I let her run, and I’d call her. She’d run away. I’d start heading to the front door, as I say, “bye-bye. It’s time to eat”. (“Eat” is the call, after she sits, that she is allowed to go to her food bowl). And I‘D go to the front door. The first time she didn’t believe I was leaving her “game”. But, pretty fast, she learned that if she headed through the door with me, she was immediately getting fed. And that was much more fun than playing “run away”. I did still have her sit at the door as I opened it, and she got a treat, and then her food awaited her inside.
