I have a 5 and a Half old puppy. Her name is Molly. I need suggestions to keep her from dashing away. She thinks it's a game.

I strongly recommend taking some obedience training classes. You're going to have her for a very long time, and you'll both benefit and be much happier if she has had obedience training. You won't believe how fast they learn, and they are so excited to be pleasing their people, that they really try their best.

Yes, it's a game. So you get to change the rules. Don't chase her, just sit down on the spot. She will most likely come right back to you because what she really wants is to interact with you. I had a cocker pup who did that. When someone told me to sit down, I thought "that's crazy" but when I did it, it worked, every time.

I also taught her a very reliable sit (think: lots of cherrio treats). She would plop her little wigglebutt down immediately. That kept 'Miss High Spirited One' out of many a danger in her long life.
