Runaway Lab!

I cannot seem to keep my yellow lab home and within his fence for anything! I had him neutered thinking this may solve the problem,it has improved some,but the minute you take your eye off him he's under the fence. He was 1 1/2 yrs old when he was nuetered,so I'm thinking he got a taste of something he likes and has yet to forget! Around 1 yrs old was when I adopted him and I think he may have been abused by children? Many a kid he does not like!! He seems to have an agressive side to people he does not know/like? Anyone associated w/ me he seems to be fine with (sometimes!). Any info would be helpful,I'm running out of ideas.

I dont think this is aggression at all but a dominance issue, course I could be wrong... When you say whoa, its issued one time and he whoas, if not, he gets reset, but not with whoa, whoa, whoa [email protected]

Heck it might even be bordom, the best rule is a tired dog is a good dog. Does he get run/walked everyday or maybe twice a day?

The old dog training mantra of repetition, repetition, repetition comes to mind. Put on his collar, hide inside looking out a window, the minute he starts under zap him. Give him time to recover and keep at it. Do it over multiple days. Dont give him a chance to try it if the collar is not on and you are not ready. Should help a bunch...

Best of luck...
