Is it ever too late to train a dog to stay in a yard off leash?
I want to train my dog to stay in the yard off his leash, it's such a pain in the ass when he gets out and runs off because then I have to go catch him. Last time I was afraid he'd hurt himself because he jumped off a wall to get away from me and I don't think he realized the other side of the wall was a 10 foot drop. Luckily he didn't hurt himself but I then had to pretend I was hurt because it was the only way he'd come to me. He also gets mad that he has to be on a chain when my other dog doesn't - I got her when she was already trained to stay in the yard and she doesn't wander off. Buddy is 19 months old and I'm hoping it's not too late to train him to stay in the yard, especially now that my cousin recently got a puppy and Buddy wants to play with him but it's hard to do that when he has to stay on a chain.
