How would a dog "escape"? Never had this happen. If a dog is well trained and watched it wont "escape". My dog figured out how to open the front glass door and ran out once to greet a friend who was stopping by. I yelled for her to leave it and she came right back. A dog only "escapes" from a poor trainer. I firmly believe there are no "bad dogs" just bad owners who do not know how to effectively train their dogIf they "escape" it is because I opened a door and let them out. And on occasion I have lost a bird if the bird managed to escape the run. When that has happened I feel bad and take full responsibility for it, I do not punish the dog or worse yet "get rid of the dog" because of my mistake.
I love my dogs and am committed to them for life. They are *not* disposable pets.
