No situation in particular. Just something I am wanting to build on. I have been keeping him on the long lead and working with him daily. I have started using his high value tug toy and it seems to be working. I will keep you posted!Oh, dang! You remember that!?
@Cranekc35 I'm sorry if I missed it but what situations are you in where your dog is off leash?
I would say there are very few situations in which a dog needs to be off leash where a long lead won't suffice (trialing is a different story but you aren't generally allowed any gear and dogs are generally contained, somehow). Off leash privilege's are earned (via @Ravenbird 's story, above!) but it takes a long time to build up that trust and it's scary when it's tested.
Is recall still important to train? Absolutely! More so curious about what off-leash opportunities you're looking at.
