Archie’s Secret Dossiers #2: Escape Techniques

1. Find naive dog walker e.g. Richard or other boater who’s used to labradors/collies

2. Walk nicely to lull naive walkers into false sense of security

3. Persuade naive walker that mummy Sarah’s instruction “never ever let this dog off the lead under any circumstances” is a complete slander upon your good character

4. When let off the lead, run for long distances – return when tired/hungry/when the naive walkers have turned an interesting shade of purple
