I seriously love this dog. SO easy to train, would be so much further along if I didn't have school, work, and a horse...
Today was the first day we went to the park and I let her off leash. Off leash is allowed at this park, and when I arrived (around 11:30 AM), there was nobody there. Once people started arriving 30 minutes later both dogs were put on leashes for the rest of our time there.
She has decent recall at home, always better outside for some reason. It's generally about 95% of the time, always worse when my older dog is there, since my older dog does NOT have a solid recall. I can go get her at any point in time, and sometimes she'll come to me, but it's not solid, and she's at an age where I don't really care about making it more solid, since she is content on a leash anyways.
But... this isn't about her. This is about Arya. 13 weeks old yesterday, and her recall is awesome.
I didn't video it, but she was also able to be recalled from some people who were walking by... and people are her biggest distraction. Animals, other dogs (apart from Tasha), smells, etc... she really doesn't care. People.... she wants nothing more than to be friends with all of them.
So... videos of her recall!! (also, I only ever try to use "come" once, in the video where I couldn't see her, I was looking in the wrong direction since I wasn't 100% sure which way they went, and so I said "come" more than I normally would, and then when I saw her, only to reinforce it to her that yes, I was talking to her).
