In case you are scratching your head and trying to remember the definition of a compound sentence, this may help.
A compound sentence is written when you join two sentences together using a conjunction. (Don't forget your comma!) The most common conjunctions are the FANBOYS: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so.
Example: I planned to take my dog for a walk, but I could not find its collar.
