Off Leash Training Update

The Man and Lee have been working very hard at her off leash training this summer. It is one of the joys of us all being home almost all the time! 

It is still being done under very strict conditions and for very short periods of time.  Hailey seems to be very aware that this is not free time, it is listening time and the only thing she may do when they are in the yard, is run to her hole to dig! That is ok!

It is going so well, The Man and Hailey have been venturing onto the road (it is a private road, more like a driveway for the 6 places past us).

Looking at the field

Walking back toward the house. You will notice the leash is in Man's hand as a signal. 

In the drive way

Surveying her kingdom

We are so proud of her!

    One of the great joys is to walk as hyoomon and pupster with no strings attached... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Well done Lee. Soon you will have the humans lulled into a false sense of security, and you will be free then to run off and have a really exciting adventure....
    Not that I've ever done anything like that, of course. (Well, not for quite a while.)
    Toodle pip!

  7. Well done, Lee! I think that calls for some treats. 🦴🦴🦴

  8. That is really great work. Mom says she doesn't think she could ever trust us off leash - we have too much of an innate desire to run!!!
