Unhappy poor puppies :(

As I've said before i live in a apartment where the only place my little ones can run around and play is not but 15 feet from the road and its very scary. I don't like putting them on leashes because they can't run and play. My little girl like to run towards the road when cars come by so i have to yell at her and play time is over its back in the house we go . I don't know what to do. Its unsafe for my chi's here

Have you considered a really long lead? Like 20 ft? Then you could just bring them to the park or some place where there's lots of room. It's not as freeing as a good off leash romp, but better to play safe.

I wouldn't let them off leash in your current place - there's just too much of a risk.

Are you able to walk them to another area before letting them off their leads or is there a possibility of moving? Otherwise I don't really know what I can suggest other than more exercise in the house. It's only me, but I certainly would not be letting my dogs off their leads in this situation. What if they don't stop? Or you don't call them back in time? It's just too big a risk in my eyes and then it could cause others to be injured also.

I would get a long training lead (15-20 ft). That way, they can run and play but you can control them. Or maybe you can buy a moveable pen, take it outside and set it up to let them play in it. That way they are contained for play.

I definitely would NOT let them off lead with the road so close by. That is an accident waiting to happen.

That sounds like a great idea

Yes, I think a larger playpen would be an excellent idea. Are there any small dog only off leash dog parks where you live? We have one near us and there are size and weight restrictions. It's always empty, and is a great place to let a chi run.

I'm probably the lone ranger here, but I don't see the need for tiny dogs to even go outside. When I used to live in apartment, and before wee wee pads, my poodle went outside ONLY to potty and we went back inside. I have lots of fenced yard now and my 4 little chihuahuas very rarely go outside. They have comfy beds and each other, I dont believe its a requirement to go outside. They love to lay in the sunshine comin thru the window, and every once in a while I will take them out weather permitting. In this situation that close to the road, WOULD NOT GO THERE.
