Buddy's recall has gotten great--when he's in a stay. But not having a space to let him roam freely, play, just run around where he'd be safe, I have no way of know what his recall would be like if he broke his leash, I don't know if I'd be able to trust him at an off leash park or beach (not that I would let him off leash at a place other dogs might be, given how annoying he seems to be to other canines. He just wants to make friends!) It's just something that would help my peace of mind to know, ya know? Maybe one day I can borrow someones fenced in yard to test it.

Sorry, Bud. You can't go play today!


  1. My dogs have ZERO recall. Not that I haven't tried. Good on Buddy, hopefully you can test it out in a safe area soon!

  2. I didn't have a fenced in yard until Nola was 1 1/2. I used a long (50 and 100ft) line, so she felt like she was off leash but she was still safe. Her recall was perfect by 11 months.
