Once again Daisy got out and wouldnt come...

So at almost 2 years old Daisy still cannot be off a tie out. Today, I put her in her pen without the tie out ( I intended on going out the other door and taking her for a walk, but didnt want the other dogs to see) walked to the other door, and by the time I got to the pen ( literally 7 seconds later) she was long gone. I went inside to tell others to come help find her and heard her run by the door ( she must have been hiding and when i went in decided to taunt me) so it only took us probably 8-10 minutes to get her this time, but she didnt come when called, stop when told to. Eventually she was 'cornered' into an area that had fences and decided to stop, when she could have easily jumped over them and continued. My question is, what do I do when she stops or comes back? Do I say good girl because she stopped or came? Or would that be kinda like saying good girl you ran away? Or should I say nothing? Or reprimand her? But if do that, what if she takes that as being scolded for stopping or coming? Im at a loss for what to do with her, our other dogs were trained by her age. I know an extreme part of her issues is that she is a sled dog and doesn't get enough exercise, Im working on finding better exercise for her, but its hard when she cant be trusted off leash.

Ditto GSD- 6 years old
Daisy Alaskan Husky- 4 years old
Weegee Toy Poodle- 2 years old

Don't scold or reprimand her when she lets you catch her. As you said, next time she gets out she'll remember that when you caught her she was punished and she'll keep right on running.

I personally would have a hard time praising or treating though.

Once you get her back, no matter how, you have to praise them (as if they had come right to you!).

And contain your body language so they don't percieve you as being really upset with them!

Put in your position I would have snapped the lead on and left her in a long down-stay somewhere safe. No punishment, no praise. The point is all fun ceases. AFTER you have calmed down, praise the down.
