Would you proof your dog like this?

I was not there, but if I was I would not do this, even though my dog could. This road is used by transport trucks, all you need is a backfire and a dog bolts, the wrong way.

I told my instructor that I would not do that and the rest of the class looked at me as if I was an over-protective dog owner.

Would you do this. Am I the only one who feels that this is too risky?

No way! My dog is great off leash and has a great recall, but look how close they are to the curb- there's no room for error at all- if they break their stay it's too late to call them back.

If they were further up on the grass, sure because that gives me time to call my dog- but NOT THIS CLOSE! Scary!

Two words: ****. No.
There are better places and better ways for this.

I'm glad I found others who agree with me. The way the others looked at me I was feeling whimpy because I objected.

WOW?!


Caledon, no way in heck would I do that. The photo makes my stomach turn. This is very risky and like you said one spook, distraction, car driver getting distracted and this is a bad scene.

Wonder why the instructer wouldn't use the distraction by the owner holding the leash, the dog is still in a sit/down?

That's not bad. I usually use the median in between the lanes (sarcasm).

I am very confident in my dogs sit/down stays but that just seems silly.

Those pictures are scary! And for any American friends that don't know it, that LCBO store in the background is the liquor store in Ontario. I'm actually getting angry thinking about what a risk these people are taking with their dogs.
