Dog Running Away From Homework Market

What does it mean when your dog tries to bolt from you the very second a door opens? If a friend did that, by the third time you might check your breath. But your pup doesn't care about your breath. So why does he do that?

Sharon Crowell-Davis, DVM, DACVB, professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia, says your dog is likely telling you something about himself. “When dogs run off, it could mean they’re really not happy at home. It's not necessarily that they have a bad home life, but as a species, the majority of dogs are curious and want to be active and explore and discover,” she explains. “If you only take them out to potty and for a 10-minute walk, dogs may run off simply to seek activity and stimulation.”

Not All Dogs Run

Of course, not every dog is a runner. Some dogs within the same household can have very different reactions to an opportunity to run free. Dr. Crowell-Davis attributes this to a number of things, including variations in temperament. In the same way some people are homebodies, some dogs prefer the familiarity and comfort of home. Certain breeds also find their physique a barrier to becoming escape artists. Bulldogs, for instance, are unable to run fast and are not going to have much of an opportunity to take off, Dr. Crowell-Davis says. “But more likely it depends on early experience and how the dog is raised,” she adds. “Good socialization in puppies produces a puppy that is comfortable with the world and comfortable going out and exploring it.” Conversely, puppies living in a barren environment could become timid because of a lack of exposure to the world.

Spice It Up at Home

So how can you keep the normal adventure-seeking qualities in your pup from getting him into trouble? One way is to provide an appropriately fun home environment, Dr. Crowell-Davis suggests. Good long walks provide mental as well as physical exercise, and stimulating toys like puzzle food toys are going to improve your dog’s quality of life and, therefore, make him more interested in staying at home.

In addition to making home more attractive, Dr. Crowell-Davis stresses the importance of teaching your dog proper recalls. Getting your dog to come when called rather than running off is part of puppy socialization training, and even older dogs can learn to come when called, but it takes practice.

A Chinese school boy spent six days sleeping at an IKEA store and living off free food samples after he got in trouble with his mother when he didn’t do his homework.

Peng Yijian, from Shanghai in China, was sent home from school last Monday morning after his mother received a phone call by a teacher saying that he hadn’t done his maths assignment.

But the 12-year-old ran away from his Binnan Road home about 12.15pm following an argument with his mother, known as Liu.

Mrs Yijian told Shanghai Daily that her son only had 1.5 yuan (28 cents AUD) in his pocket when he left and reportedly survived off free food samples from the supermarkets.

The student from Longyuan Middle School was spotted by police on Tuesday afternoon at the IKEA outlet in Xuhui District and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Mrs Yijian said her son was ‘very weak with hunger’ when he was found near an escalator on the ground floor and has since received an intravenous drip.

The parents said they were grateful for all the help from everyone and promised to have better communications with their son in the future.

After the seventh grade student was reported missing last Tuesday, police found CCTV footage of the boy at Shanghai South Railway Station and Carrefour outlet.

‘We thought there might be other places he likes to visit, so we asked his mother,' police officer Sun Miao told Shanghai Daily.

‘She gave us eight or nine names, including Caoxi Park, Nanfang Shopping Mall, In Center and IKEA.'

Mrs Yijian also added that her son had previously run away before but was never gone for this long.
