So we have been training Winnie to go off leash but we have always been a bit worried about taking the plunge fully. Winnie's recall is good until she sees another dog and then she usually goes deaf. We have been working with a very long leash and she got to run around on the local golf course (currently not being used much other than for walking dogs) with the long leash trailing behind her. Yesterday, she met up with the ladies who walk the doggy troupe and proceeded to tangle everyone (oh dear) so we thought it was time to bite the bullet and go for it today. We took the leash off and she was marvellous. Always watching where we were, running around and coming back again to us, also coming back when we called her (although I did have to shake the box of super treats a couple of times). She met the doggy troupe again and ran with them a bit. They continued their walk one way and we went the other and she followed us and not the dogs. When it was time to go home she walked along nicely towards the exit and we put her leash on to walk home. It was so lovely to see her free and she looked happier than ever. A good day all round.
