, It is always exciting when you can finely trust a dog enough to let it off leash.

That's awesome! A week after walking my two terrible pups on the lead I managed to let them off successfully. I never trusted them and still don't but it's a start

I would still keep her on a leash and set up a fence. I live on 27 acres but I still have a fence for my dogs. I worry that some of the other dogs running lose might attack mine or they may get in the road and get hit by a car. For some reason people think country roads are for driving way to fast on.

I let my dogs off all of the time! We have a leash law, for public places and such, but any other time letting them off is great providing you're in a safe place. Another dog could always attack yours rewarding of whether yours is on a leash or not, happened to me enough times

That's great. I can never trust my dog off leash....although he listens to me really well, he's a minpin and sometimes goes into "terrier" mode which takes a little while to get out of....on my busy street there's no margin for error. And in the woods......I let one dog off leash, but the minpin is too easily distracted by his nose.

willow is a bird dog if i am not outside or my husband is not outside she goes into hunting mode and runs straight for the woods my male brittany is 7 yrs old and stay here at all times unless willow is loose then he wants to run with her. i am surrounded by national forest and my closest neighbor is about a mile down the road. the thing i worry about is her getting lost or coyotes.
