Wandering and Roaming

If you have problems with your dog constantly escaping from your property and roaming the streets, there are a couple of things you can do.

For starters, spaying and neutering are handy in this respect once again. Dogs tend to go roaming because they’re looking for a mate. This is particularly noticeable with males, although females are just as likely to go walkabout when they’re in heat. When you have your dog neutered, the desire to seek out a mate is diminished.

Another thing is environmental: it may simply be that your property isn’t secure enough to keep your dog in. Do a thorough check around the edges of your property and search for any holes in fences. If your property isn’t fully fenced, I’d recommend you change that. In the meantime, be more careful about leaving your dog out of your sight in a part of the property where she can easily get out onto the street.

If you have low fences, consider attaching some chicken wire or trellis to the top. Aussies can jump quite high and can easily get over a low fence.

"If you don't own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life."
