Yeah something like that, though I don't know how protective they are. I tried looking up dog breeds that don't wander and a lot are hearing breeds though then their description for these less likely to wander breeds kept saying things like love long hikes, which sounds like they love to wander but got me thinking maybe they just like wandering WITH their human due to a deep bond. They don't fit any other criteria but chihuahuas as a whole are not inclined to wander and are very clingy/devoted to their people. So I figure that may be the key. Be dependent on the owner but protective of their "pack" including the other animals.

One on the list as less likely to wander is the Berger Picard which is also listed as devoted and dependent on it's family for guidance and support. Little to no hunting instinct so another reason not to wander off.

"the Picard always tries to stay close to its owner and family, so even if you have a big yard and give the dog the choice to pick where it wants to be, it will rather stay inside with you than alone outside." ~ Dog bredd info, not the best site but they are a less known breed still so not tons of info.

Just about any dog will run off, if given the chance, regardless of hunting instinct. I wouldn't trust a dog to not run away based on breed. I have a poodle/schnauzer who is VERY clingy and a golden/border collie who would take any chance she could get to escape our fence. Now that she's old she doesn't really try anymore, but if the gate is open she'll walk right out and wander away. The little poodle mix will follow her anywhere the other dog goes, even though he's very attached to my mother.

Are you saying you have a kooikerhondje or that you are considering one? Because they're pretty rare here in the US.

No, I don't have them, but I worked with them, not anymore as they're more interested in my neighbor's dog than their job.
