    Default Off Leash Beaches

    I am so very pleased with how much Diesel has matured since last summer. He is now 14 months old and a pleasure to take anywhere off leash. He was a tear away last summer, any dog he would see hed be off like a rocket trying to play... Last week was warm enough for some beach days and what a huge change 6 months of maturing has made. He sat and helled until we told him it was ok to go play... if he did get the urge to run a quick "come" and he would turn and come back to us.
    Im still wary of his size and if the owner looks a bit worried or puts their dog back on the leash Diesel to goes back on the leash as i don't want any conflict.
    Im so proud of the dog he is turning into

    That brought a smile to my face!

    Those off leash walks are my biggest reward for owning a dog too. I love to see them enjoy that freedom and I am convinced that most dogs as they get older grasp the concept of that freedom being tied to the condition that they have to follow a few basic rules.

    I am very lucky. My rescue dog was good off leash when I got her when she was only 8 months old! She only once bolted, to go play with another dog, in the 2 months I've been walking her at the off leash area twice a day! She just stays close to me and will follow me again after playing with other dogs without me having to even say anything most of the time. But I do do lots of recall training with her too on those walks and I'm teaching her "leave" too because I never let her go up to a dog that's on leash.

    I do still put her on the lead if I spot little kids up ahead because she still jumps up. I hope she will mature like your dog and grow out of that over the next few months!

    We to are very lucky having the beach right down the road and a huge oval that backs onto our back fence. it is very rewarding isnt it beloz and they do seem to realise they can have their freedom but they need to behave lol
