Iris and I visited @novacommunitycollege Annandale campus to work on some off leash healing and obedience. I bring her ecollar along so when people ask about her being off leash I can say, well technically she has one 😉
This type of exercise can only be done AFTER you’ve rehabilitated your dog, have built a strong relationship and they walk loose leash 99% of the time. People always rush to off leash work and fail because they don’t put in the time and effort to have and well balanced and calm dog in all other areas (at your house, in the car, walking on leash in a new place). If you can’t even stop your dog from rushing the door or pulling your arm off to see another dog why the HELL would you think they’re ready for off leash work? You aren’t and they aren’t either. Put in the relationship work and you can and will get to this point with your dog.
