He y I Don't have a dog, but my neighbor does. He gets out all the time. He just got out today, again. I always bring him home. He's really good on a leash. But today, he did everything but bite me when I tried to get him home. He layed down and wouldn't budge, when we walked away from his home, he was fine. I finally succeeded in getting him home, but I had to drag him a little to get him going. I hate doing that. Why was it so hard to get him home today? Is he abused? All I know, is the lady, gets a little miffed when he takes off, I can understand that, because they try everything, other then tying him, to get him to stay. All he got was a swat, and thrown into the house. I don't think any of that classifies as abuse, but any ideas, on how I can get him to go home easier? He's a sweet heart, all he wan ted to do was lick me to death.
