I open the back door and let the dogs out.
Some of them like to get under the fence and run into neighbor’s yard for the hell of it. I got to call them every so often to make sure everybody is still with me, nobody ran away, and my life is in balance.
Some time ago I left the house and forgot the back door open all day. I return and find every single dog in the house! No missing in action.
I guess when I am home it is cool to run away. When I am not home we protect the house and running away is a form or deserting.
A cat would do that, but not a dog.
