Re: How far do your Area dogs range?

That seems to be about what most of the dogs on our team do-100 yrds. I am not trying to brag, it just seems unusual that Kaio ranges so far. We do have one other dog that ranges up to a 1/4 mile or so. He just gets so far away that I can't even hear his bell half the time. I know he's working because he comes back 15 or 20 minutes later and alerts (we don't use bark alerts at the subject in CARDA, the dog has to do a refind) I just wanted to see if that was normal or what. Or if anyone had any ideas on how you still communicate with your dog at that kind of a distance.
Thank you for your response, I am still pretty new at this and a little unsure of myself yet.
