This is terrible! I hope you find her soon!!! I have such a fear of Toby escaping. The first thing I did was teach him stay until he was bulletproof. Now I can leave the door open and he just sits there staring outside if I tell him to stay. This is especially vital for you because you have young kids. I agree that a gate or something similar will help to keep her in while you teach her "stay".

Please keep us updated. I'm thinking of you!

I really hope you are able to find her! If I saw a small chi running alone in the snow, I would definitely grab them and take them inside. Odie escaped once when just my husband and brother-in-law were home while I was at school and my husband said he was running around like a maniac and after awhile he started crying because we live by a busy road and he was sure something had happened to her. He turned a corner and saw one of our neighbors carrying her. Thank God.

Even though Odie now knows the stay command, I don't take any chances and we have a small gate up so she can't even access the stairs that lead to our door.

It happens to the best of us. I have friends who are professional exotic animal trainers and their dogs are so extremely well trained, but even they sometimes slip up when instinct kicks in.

This is a really helpful video about training your dog to not bolt out the door. Its all positive training so it wont lead your dog to fear the door.

Watching this now!
I mostly read about training, I didn't think to look up youtube videos.

I looked everywhere. We go to the gym every other day, and looked before and after for a long time. I've been stalking Craigslist to see if she's been found, at one point I was refreshing like every 30 seconds. I had to get off there, it was driving me crazy. A half hour before bed I'll check again, that way I can pick her up if someone lists her.

I'm feeling so lost. I think Micha can feel it, she hasn't left my side and keeps whining when I have to hold the tears back. I'm just so worried. I wish micochips had little GPS thingies in them!! How awesome would that be!

I'll update tomorrow, wether she's found or not. Thank you all for being so amazing.

I've watched for 1 minute and already see something I'm doing wrong!
Instead of rewarding only when I get back to her like the video says, I reward when I'm just starting to walk back to her. UGH I should have realized that! Off to watch some more.
