Can someone test a theory?

    This has been done numerous times with different owners.

    Depends on your dog. Results vary

    I would like to try this but I feel that it would be hard to really prove or disprove without actually having your dog escape. When Jibo escapes he is in a different attitude because he knows he is free where he is not supposed to be, therefore his energy is 2x and his endorphins are exploding, whereas in a gated area he will be excited and curious but not in the same attitude. I do know for one thing though, that when my stepdad was chasing Jibo he was running. I opened the front door and he saw me, so I called him in and he ran right in.

    I think in Fen's case, this may have worked? I don't know - he wasn't spooked (according to the puppy-sitters) he was playing, so he may have seen this as a new part of the game (and he ALWAYS looked back when running away and being chased). It's an interesting theory though.

    I try this all the time, sometimes i pretend to be in hurt, sometimes I pretend to cry. koji just looks stops and stares at me and gives me the "you're weak" look, then walks away......
