Do you put him on a leash in your yard?
Do people complain that your dog is not on a leash in your yard when your out working in your yard?

I used to when we had our last two dogs, no leash, they would just hang out in our woods. Can't with the new dog - she's too curious and runs out into the neighborhood so she stays inside now.

I even make him wait for me when I'm shovelling - and if he gets impatient i let him sit in the van and wait for me there.

I don't have a dog, but the cats like to go out into the yard whether I'm there or not.

In cold weather he wants to go out, run around madly for a few minutes (best done in fresh snow), then go back to sleep indoors while we finish working.

Walk her every morning and every night. She can go in the yard when she feels like she has to. It's fenced. Always use a leash in A.M. and P. M.

I generally try, but he gets bored and would rather sleep inside, silly guy.

always.. he has an acre to roam with an electronic fence. Whenever he gets close to his boundaries his collar will start beeping and he knows that's as far as he can go. We still keep an eye on him as there are neighbor dogs that come by occasionally.

Ours is getting more reliable, but we still can't trust him 100%. But he does love lying in the sun!

yep, just not when i am playing ladder golf or croquet (yes, i do tend to yell "off with your head" a few times just for fun and to embarrass the kids - lol) - the dog tends have a serious addiction to balls of any kind and he will eat them :)
no leash tho - its all fenced , and I don't let him out front - don't want him to think he is allowed unless we go for a walk

I no longer own a dog...but get very tired of people not watching their dog & wonder off into my yard to crap!!!! Or better yet, walking their dog on a leash and stop long enough to crap in my yard & not clean it up

I do, My dog is good about staying close & basically in our yard. I teach her not to set foot in the street. But she cant resist running out and barking at people walking by. I have to keep an eye out and grab her when that happens.

We generally trust him outdoors off leash, but if he's there for too long he gets bored. One time two years ago he made his own decision to go exploring and ended up in town! We are in a mostly rural area, but he was able to head into a built-up area. Naturally it was at rush hour. Some very nice people took him in and we got him back the next day. So now he's watched carefully or on a long (20 ft) lead.

We are far enough from the road that no one can see if he's off leash or not, so no one can complain about that.
