I’m training my dog, Diva to walk off the lead. We got her a couple years ago as a rescue, aged 4/5 and she used to run off, so none of us have tried again.
Lately, I’ve been training her, with an extension lead by letting her go full length, then calling her etc. She has been pretty good at it.
A few days ago, I let her off on the football field, and today I actually let her walk for a bit off lead. She’s a very good learner.
At one point she ran over the hill, and I couldn’t see her until the corner, and I swear she was smiling at me!
This is her today on the football field.
