Mylo has always been good off the lead, the first time i took him for walkies, i let him off and he just stayed close to me the whole time, and thats how its always been, he might slack behind busy sniffing but as soon as he looks up and im further ahead he comes racing towards me. i have a dog whislte too that he knows to come to wen i whistle it and i often use that wen we are out. Yeah we have some nice places to walk the dogs over here, loads of forest walks which i love too, soooo peaceful and hardly anyone ever around. That place was lyndhurst!!
