Question:

I am at my witts end with my jack russell. He is a great dog one-on-one but I cannot let him loose outside because he runs from me. This is a real problem. He is 13 months old and should be over this by now. I cannot make him come back to me. When we are inside he is perfect. He comes, sits, shakes, rolls over, all that. I can even put him in time out and he listens. But outdoors is another problem. I have been told to let him run it out and he will come back but there are cars and most importantly other animals that my dog is not afraid of. What can I do?
