Sending the dog back?
Recently, I was going back to work after a short holiday and our dog accompanied me towards a valley before my ascent towards a neighbouring village where I was to find a means of transport. At some point, I knew I had to let go of my friend for another prolonged period of estrangement. I had to be firm and I used a frond to scare him back. He got the message after he realized that I was disappearing into the horizon. It was not the short excursion to the garden he thought where he refreshed in the river during hot seasons. Some people have conditioned their dogs to go back home by uttering a single word, a short verbal order for the dog to go back home backed by a credible undertone of punishment which in my opinion is not a humane thing to do. I remember another young dog of a similar age who accompanied me uphill to the neighbouring village and I realized that he was in danger from hit and run motorists. Fear and apprehension were written on his face with a visible and impotent frown. I had to bark orders at him to take the long route back home, dogs being the intelligent creatures they are, I found him sound and dry in the evening . How to send the dog back home?

RE: Sending the dog back?
Pardon me but I am scared in what you are doing. In this modern times, dogs cannot be left to their own devices because they may be hit by vehicles. There are stray cats and dogs in our community and sometimes we see a dead animal on the road presumably hit by speeding vehicles which is common here. It's a nice thought to have your dog accompany you to the bus stop or to the end of the road but it's only okay with me if your dog has someone to accompany it back home.

You remind me of a movie called Hachi, for real, it's kind of the same story, what a lovely thing.

I am trying to think if I have seen this movie or not, because something in it rang in my head for some reason, but I am not sure.  Anyways, that would be tough to have to turn your friend away for a long period of time, but if it is in the best interest of all involved then of course it makes sense.  Dogs are loyal creatures though, so I can see where it is hard to do.
