Do you have a dog that darts out doorways or from the crate? What about the car? This can be a dangerous behavior, but boundary training can help. Anything can be used as a boundary, but if you use a doorway make sure it is an interior doorway so no harm comes to the dog.
Start by walking through the boundary a few times to make sure the dog is comfortable with the set-up. Next, stand on one side of the boundary with the dog on the same side as you. Toss a treat behind the dog. Repeat a few times, then wait. The dog will stand still, waiting for the treat. Click and toss the treat behind the dog. Repeat.
