You didn't say if you were out with the dog, but sounds like you had the dog tied up ... don't! Use chicken wire for a doggie run if you have too. I don't blame any dog for running if they are tied up most of the time. Dogs just like freedom like we do, but 9 chances out of ten the dog will come back on it's own. Don't scold the dog! If you live in the city then put up posters at stores (ask the owners), vets close by or advertise in the newspaper. Keep checking with your ASPCA and go down because they are busy and may over-look your dog.

Good luck

AnswerI don't see anything in your question to imply you were doing anything wrong, or how the dog was restrained. And when he returns, or you find him (I most certainly hope you do): Get a halter type collar that he can't slip out of again. They retain the animal without placing stress on the neck and leading to possible chocking. Answer">AnswerI would make the collar tighter if I ever caught the Dog!

MY ANSWER: i think that you should go to a big open space(maybe like a park) but somewhere he cannot escape and run him and play fetch and chase him. Just let him have some free running time. He would like it!-sorry i kept on saying HE your dog could be a SHE. GOOD LUCK!

u could catch the dog with food and make its collar tighter or buy a harness

u could go chasing after it like most people but if itz trained kall its name. when ever u get ur dog back don't tighten the collar it might choke just put it 2 the next hole or 2.if u have a harnest i recommend tighten it a little bit. if that doesnt work and ur dog runs off again have neighbor's help u get or dog back. or maybe itz time 2get a stronger collar or harnest.

The answer is not to make the collar tighter, unless it was really loose. A dog collar should be fitted with you able to get two fingers under the collar when it is on your dog. I have no idea whether your dog was with you or tethered so I won't comment on that. A harness is the answer either way. I have left some links to various types of dog harnesses.

Not if the dog had no collar or identification on it. If the dog does have a collar or identification you should do everything you can to contact the owner. Even if the dog does not have identification you should either take the dog to a local shelter or advertise widely that you have found a loose dog so the owner can reclaim their dog. The owner should be appreciative of your efforts to keep their dog from coming to harm if you found it wandering alone.

Will a pronged-collar help keep your dog from sliding out of his collar when tied up?

You should not use a pronged collar, they can badly injure your dog. Pronged collars are extremely inhumane and it is illegal in some states to tie up a dog using a pronged collar or a choke chain. Don't use them on walks either because when your dog pulls metal spikes dig into your dogs neck and can hurt or choke them. If you keep your dog outdoors tied to a tree or something, realize that if your dog is in bad condition them the SPCA is qualified to take them. You should build your dog a fenced in backyard or an area. Then there is no chance of him slipping his collar.

Walk a dog?

Well, it depends on what you mean. If you mean walking an actual dog, then that's easy. The dog should have a leash and collar, the collar should have a metal hook, and so should the leash.
