I haven't let Holly off the leash off our property yet so I was going to start practicing by using a "long line" (I don't have an actual long line so I just clipped a longer leash to her usual one). She's 6 and a half months old. So I took her to the park today and let her walk off so I could call her back, but... she wouldn't leave, if I walked away then she walked next to me like she does during loose leash walking and if I stopped she just sat down next to me. So I tried throwing a treat so I could call her from a distance, this worked twice and then she thought the game was to run to get the treat and then run back to me (without me needing to call her). Then I stopped throwing treats so she thought the game was to run away and then turn and run straight back I kept giving her treats everytime she ran back to me because I guess even if we didn't get to practice recall it is still making her like running back to me so that when she does figure out that she can walk off it will be easier to get her back. I guess I will just have to find a fenced area and actually let her off the leash and see what she does.
