How did you teach your dog to be off leash? Did you start with them off leash right from the start or did you use long lines? Missy's a hair away from being off leash, it's just the car chasing I need to nip in the bud. All other times her eyes are on me 98 percent of the time , or she's sniffing the ground. My plan is to pretend she has never chased a car, but if she shows interest to tell her leave it (it's worked in the past as long as I kept her on her toes...) A good acquaintance of mine last year told me "don't even look at the road... and see what happens..." MAGIC!! so I'm going to try this again. She chased a car and barked at it yesterday at the park so that was a fail, but they say a new day equals a fresh start, right? Sunday on our walk, I took her to the park. There were no cars around, so I let her 15' lead drag a little bit... (I didn't let it get past me though so I could grab it if I needed to.) I'm sooo close, and you will ALL know when I let her off leash officially for the first time, of course! I'm not taking any chances!! She will NOT be going off leash until I know for sure that she will leave cars alone. So no worries!!
