I do most of my puppy training at home off leash. I do like to have a lightweight leash attached to the flat collar, so I can step on it if necessary, but I want my puppies to pay attention to me and work with me, and not just because they are restrained by a leash. That requires me to be as motivating and fun as possible, so puppy WANTS to engage with me.

Obviously, outdoors I use a leash, for safety reasons.
