Help with a runner
Why does this little guy run away from me??? He found me about 18 months ago, living in the shrubs in front of my work. I got him to take feed from and he has been my right hand man since. I always keep him leashed and if i am not leading him and in a enclosed area i just drop the leash he hangs close by until we ready to move to another area. He listens when he is in a controlled space , He will stop and sit if i command from a great distance.
Today i was loading a van and leashed him in the van and i didn't clasp it proper , he broke free. He took off like i didn't exist any more. We were in a large loading yard with only one way in or out. he kinda of cornered himself and was ordered to sit , which always works with him, still did not acknowledge me and ran past and found the way out of the yard and was gone. He was running away from me!!! I got my van and found him sniffing his way down the road, pulled over opened the door he jumped in like he did nothing wrong!!!!! I gave no reaction to him, just happy it ended quickly and he was safe.
I do not understand this flight issue, i accept that he is on leash at all times but this was mistake on my part and he took full advantage. I want control!
He is 13 lbs of grey fluff i enclosed a pic of him if that is any help, he a mix but do not know the flavor.

id get him on a long leash and get some treats and train him or take him to an enclosed park or even start in your garden just recalling over and over.
As you found him stray he maybe is a little used to freedom and is not so worried about where you have gone, if i walk the opposite direction when Caes isnt listening he comes running, your dog is probably less dependant
