I think a long time ago it might have safe to let your dog stay outside olone, but there are lot of dog nappers out there. Someone would steal your little maltese for sure. Another factor is there is always a dog loose so I would be afraid the dog would her him. If you are talking about while you are out there, then that is a bit different. My fist dog was 1 year old when i got him and he would always make a mad dash as soon as he saw anything move, human, cat dog. It took a good 6 months of telling him to stay. When he did not listen, I would tell him that was wrong and he had to go back in the house. He now listens to me. Now if he sees a cat he may take a few steps but I blurt out ah ah ah. Not even enough time to say a real word. He stops immediately. I can tell him go to the yard, or the car or back in the Apt. and he does it. So it is just exposing your dog and showing him what actions he does that you like or don't like. With a pup it may take longer, but just be patient. When the pup runs off. Tell him no, no and bring him back to where you want him. If he continues to run off, bring him in. He will start to learn by his mistakes and what he needs to do to be able to go out and have more fun. Hope this helps a bit.
