Default Doggie Joy

We don't have a fenced yard, and I'm not comfortable with dog parks, so Jazz's exercise consists of long walks on a leash, two to three miles most days of the week. It's not enough for a young dog that wants to RUN, but I'm too old and too slow to run with her--when I break into my top-speed trot, she just walks faster. We are lucky to have an isolated, multi-acre meadow a few hundred yards from our house, but I can't turn her loose even up there for fear she'll chase deer and never be seen again. Instead, I clip a 50-foot line to her collar and let her go. I love to see her fly across the grass, run in big circles, come directly at me, only to swerve at the last second, bounce, spring up in the air, and do at least some of the things she'd do if she could run free. It's especially fun for her when there's snow on the ground--she loves, loves, loves snow. It's pure joy, for her and for me.

I love watching them run with such enthusiasm too. Sounds like you figured out a good way to let Jazz run around.

I love to see that look of pure joy on their face. It doesn't matter if it is a poodle or another breed, there is nothing like seeing a pup in that moment where everything in the world is right for them It just warms the heart!

I also use a longline! It gives Molly enough freedom to roam & just be a 'dog'! We also spend a couple of days a week at my son's house where she has a Lab & a Golden to play with.
A longline is a good solution for those of us who are physically limited. And doggy playdates teach 'doggy manners'!
I love watching my Molly digging for truffles, burying her goodies, or chasing a bird or a ball! Jazz is lucky to have an owner who cares that he is happy!!!!!!
I pledge allegience to Ms Royalty
In the United States of her kingdom
And to her rules for which it stands
One Princess under God
In the visible
With diamonds and bones for ALL
