Sorry I havent gotten back with you all! I have been a little busy between work, my grandbabies, and of course my husky baby! We have been going to the dog park alot lately so he can run and play! Hes a very social guy! My issue with him has been he seems to want to sneak out when you open the door :( and as we all know Huskies are fast, it takes one second for him to be gone and I can't run after him forever... so I have to get the car and search to whom he stops to say hi to them at their house (he's so friendly)... so I am wondering if there are any suggestions on how to keep him from bolting out the house and taking off... a friend said to get a wireless fence (the kind you dont put in the ground just a circular transmitter in the air) and just surround my area not for containment but so when he runs out the door we have time to grab him when he gets to the boundary... my neighbor across the street has the wire one in his yard and his dog stays there she is a retriever. Is that a good option? Or can anyone tell me good training options. He likes to sneak out on my daughter or grandson... me he seems to not try that with...

Impulse control training 

Put a leash on him.

Place him in front of the door. (While the door is closed)

Tell him set.

Start to open the door. When he gets up or tries to go out the door. Close it quickly and say NO. Place him back into a sit.

Keep doing this until he does not move while the door is open. It should only take about 3 times.

Once he stays put. Give him the command to go through. (Mine is easy.)

One step out the door, make him sit and wait until you  are ready.

This should be done with ALL doors Every time. I.e car doors back doors, store doors, crate doors.

Takes doing something 4 times correctly in 4 different places for a dog to learn a behavior.

This is my girl waiting for the command to leave her training crate.

Place training is also extremely helpful for when it is Human dinner time or when guests come over or if you need to do something where you can’t keep an eye on them 100%.
