Have you ever opened your door just for a second just to have your Border Collie dash out of the house without a leash on? This can be a very annoying problem with a dog that hasn’t learned to leave the house only when it has permission to do so.
It’s easy to forget you have a dog that likes to run out the moment the door opens, even if it is just for a second. And getting the dog to come back home is no easy task either, unless you have a yummy treat on you.
Here is method that I used to train all my dogs to stay inside unless I tell them otherwise. Although you can do it on your own, it’s easier with two people. One person should hold the leash while the other says the commands and opens the door.
Don’t practice this command without the leash unless you are completely sure that the dog won’t run out of the house without your permission. You don’t want to spend the next 10 minutes chasing your Border Collie around the house trying to lure it back in.
