I have a 2 1/2 year old kelpie X irish wolf hound. i live on a small property and my dog is not fenced in. During the day this is not a problem as he will not wonder far and will stay around the house or follow us out into the paddocks, but always stays close. But as soon as the sun start to go down, he turns into a wolf and nothing i have done will make him come when i call him. he wonders up to 2 kilomteres away. he doesnt cause any trouble, but my main concern is other neighbours shooting him because from a distance he can easily be mistaken for a fox, even i have thought he was a fox a few times before. And the issue of him getting onto the main road. As i said, fencing is not an option becuase we just dont have the right house lay out. I can tie him up, however he just barks constantly all night, so we just keep him inside as soon as the sun goes down. But i would love for him to be able to go outside at night, as sometimes he wont wake me up when he needs to go to the toilet and does is it inside (i know this is not his fault). and when i have friends over and we are outside i would love for him to be out there with us, but he just runs off as soon as he gets the chance.
Any tips on how i could help this would be great, and please dont say fencing, because that can not be done. And i do have my dogs safety at best intrest, hence why i keep him locked up inside at night.
