How to Deal with Houdini Escape Artist Dog Breeds

We love our dogs but there are certain issues that can drive any sane dog owner up the wall. Things like chewing, drooling, jumping and clawing can all be annoying, but there’s one thing that’s even worse. That thing is when your Houdini dog chronically escapes from their crate or yard.

Why not use their love of treats as a motivation for learning? Get a bag of treats and spend an hour teaching tricks. Don’t do it for too long, no matter how delicious the food is, they’ll lose motivation after a while, and you will be tired, too.
