Lungeline or long lead!

Bodhi's not much of a chaser tbh. She'll go after bunnies when she's clever enough to spot them... which is occasionally.. but her recall is pretty good

I LOVE the outdoors... I have explored my region in intimate detail. Sure there is more to find though.

I go everywhere.... And anywhere. If I can walk there, I will!

We go places like that on leash, but I wish there was some big open space where he could just run without my having to worry about him taking off. I honestly don't know if he would or not, but I'm too afraid to try.

I miss you every day, Charlie. You were my teacher, my playmate, and my best friend. Together, we did what we set out to do, and I am so proud of us for that.

I started Bodhi off lead when she was just a tiny puppy.

It was scary the 1st time - but at that age, she wasn't going to go anywhere except with me.

Personally, I think the earlier you do it the better for both you and dog.

I STILL work on recall constantly. She is very good, but I can bet you, if I stopped working on it, she'd stop doing it. I can even call her away from her logs - which is no mean feat!
