Well I finally did it and braved letting Adam off the lead!! I picked him up from work yesterday morning from my friend and we both took him and Hannah to the big park near us. He loved it!! He ran around and around so fast he actually made himself sick!!! LOL He came back easily for a treat and so did Hannah (who was on the extending lead), rolled in mud, sniffed every leaf and wore himself out!!!
In fact it went so well that today I let Hannah off too! I figured that as her recall is good now at 13 weeks it would be better if she can get into the habit of coming off lead when called. Well they are both little stars. They avoided 2 football matches going on right next to them, met a few dogs which scared them tho. However both did what I wanted when confronted by 2 boxers and a lab, when I called and crouched down they ran directly under my feet allowing me to size up the doggy company before I let them meet and greet.
So other than ruining a jumper with boxer slobber it was a resounding success!!!
