Question:

: I have a JR, he's 8months old
: When he gets out of the house without a lead he runs wild and is very hard to catch.
: He goes up onto a busy road and when cars stop for him or drive past them he barks at them.
: What can I do when he gets out im scared he'll get hit by a car and I'll lose him

Hi Amy,
Four suggestions:
1) Crate the dog before doors are opened.
2) Leashes.
3) Obedience lessons with a trainer very experienced on recall training and this sort of problem.
4) Fence your yard!
