Should i take my dog's collar off at night?

I just rescued my 2 year old miniature pinscher from the shelter, he is extremely shy and when he was there he hid under the bottom bunk of my bed so I brought him home with me. When I first brought him home he had a huge collar on and I removed it as it was really scruffy, now that I'm home and he's a little older he gets nervous and tries to wander off which he does a lot, he's got a huge collar that stops him wandering off like the other dog does, at night I want to just take the collar off but when I try to he turns and tries to bite me, so I'm just worried that if I take the collar off he might get lost?

I don't know much about dogs but if I was him I wouldn't let you remove my collar unless it's really uncomfortable, or I need to leave the house and you need to bring me along in something more than a towel.

Take it off. If you let him wander off, even to the bathroom, he may try to get away from you. It is so important that you make sure that you are with him.

And don't worry about losing him. If he gets home, you'll find him. If you leave him off at the vet, they'll watch out for him and bring him home, or if you go out to the local rescue, he'll be taken care of there, they'll make sure that he gets good homes.

When I first brought him home he had a huge collar on and I removed it as it was really scruffy, now that I'm home and he's a little older he gets nervous and tries to wander off which he does a lot, he's not very smart I know, when I catch him he comes back to me and seems to be okay, but I am so afraid that he's going to get lost, he'll try to go through a fence and probably get stuck in something. How long should I let him roam around before putting a leash on him, and do you think that my apartment is a good place for him to run around in? Thanks for any advice.

I would not let him roam freely. He could get hurt. You could put a leash on him, but have it not pulled tight. He could then explore the house and neighborhood but could get lost and not be able to find his way home. Put the leash on in the hallway in a doorway where you can get an eye on him at all times. As far as home, he's small. Just don't let him outside. He might get into the garbage. His house is not very large. The best thing would be for him to find a family to live with, like a good foster home that will not want him to leave. The only thing is they would want to meet the potential pet first.

As far as roaming, it really depends on the circumstances. If it's a small, enclosed house, I would probably let the dog roam freely and leave the leash in the foyer for him to use when needed. If it's a large house, I would probably allow the dog to wander freely. My last two had free roam in large houses. If you have a large yard, the dog will probably choose the best place to roam. I don't think there is any way to predict how a dog will react in a given situation.

The best thing you can do is to take the dog to the park once or twice a week and go for short walks. This helps both of you to get to know one another. Do your best to acclimate him to your environment.

It depends on the circumstances. If he's very hungry, he may be inclined to try to forage for himself. You can try to catch him by the collar. When I've done this, I've put a leash on him and used it to try to direct him into a particular house or car, but I've never been able to catch him. I've had a small dog who tried to forage for himself and never had much luck. My larger dogs who haven't had a home try to forage sometimes and it's always been an exercise in futility.

If your dog is an escape artist or likes to roam the neighborhood, you may need to lock him in his room and let him out occasionally. That's probably all you can do.

Don't pet the dog, he's trained to bite. Don't cuss at the cat, he'll scratch. Don't hit the kids, they'll cry. Don't say anything to the wife, she'll leave. Keep it to yourself, you'll feel better. ~ Anonymous

I would suggest that you are taking your dogs to the park too often. You need to be very careful with them in a park, or even a dog park, and if you are going to do that with one of your larger breed dogs, then make sure that you keep them on a leash, for safety sake.

A park is not the place to have dogs off leash, a dog park is the place. Dogs are very curious animals, if not a little bit sneaky, and they will tend to run if they are not on a leash and in control of a person.

If you are going to take your dogs to the park often, try having them off-leash at home when they are outside and don't see anyone, and only allow your smaller dogs, like a Chihuahua to run loose around your house. If they need to run loose in the yard, or even outside, then maybe your neighborhood isn't a good choice for dogs.

My little guy, like our larger dogs, LOVES to sniff everything he can. If he's off leash he will be sniffing every bush, tree, grass, and whatever else he can find to smell. We've lived here for 3 years, and he's probably picked up a couple of ticks. He loves the park because there's so much to sniff and he can run free and have a big nose to do it!

I wouldn't want to take a large breed of dog to a public park. In my neighborhood, you may need to lock him in his room and let him out occasionally. That won't be a solution for you though.

I feel that you should always leave your dog with his people (if you have a family dog). The reason is that my kids (ages 12 and 8) are not on a leash and in control of a person.

Exactly. I have a 2 month old puppy who is not going to be in control of a person, and I also need to worry about her being away from her family all day. I don't have time to walk the dog every day either. I am just wondering what to do. I am very worried that
