my dog is 8 months old and every time i take him outside he runs away even if i have treats. i tie him up but i would like to trust him.

any suggestions?

When he goes to run away, pick him up and place him next to you and give him a treat if he stays there. If this method doesn't work, tie the leash to your waist to prevent him from going any more than 6 inches from you.

The dog whisperer does a few sessions on that and explains how to deal with it very well.

Keep him on a leash. He's very energetic at that age and can't be counted on.

You will need to always keep him on a leash or fenced. Some dogs just love to run off for some reason...
