We took the dogs in groups of 2 to the park the other day and did they ever have a great time. Gibson & Pearl went together (boxer & boston mix) and Fibi & Lola went together (shih tzu & chihuahua mix).

We are working with 50 foot training leashes which are great!

Thanks!

Im loving these 50 ft leashes we picked up...our dogs are not able to obviously be off leash because we are worried about them running off after a bird or something. But with these leashes they stay within 50-65ish feet of us and get to run around and have so much more freedom!

The area that we took them is 90% fenced in as well and is just a great open space for them to run around in.

I plan on taking them again tonight and bring a ball & frisbi and take some more pics.

I need to pick up 1 more leash and I will have enough to bring them all together which should be a blast!

those dogs are having some serious fun arent they.Great pics, I wish I could take pics like that.
I never thought about getting a 50ft leash.Our Border collie is going deaf and we are getting afraid to let him off leash, he is so used to having freedom and I dont want to take that away.Im going to have to get me one of those.

I got the leashes at PetSmart for I think $15.99 Canadian.
PetValue had some 30ft leashes that had heavier metal clips but they were $19.99 but we need the extra 20ft right now for training. They are the best things ever lol! They are super light weight for the smaller dogs and they have a metal clip to hook onto the collars and a handle. I was just going to buy rope but it was more expensive and didnt have a clip or handle.

They really are helping with training our dogs. If they get to far we just step on the rope and give a verbal command. We are noticing now just after several trips to the park with the leashes that 2 of the dogs are responding to the verbal commands and do not require the step on the leash correction. For your dog that is going deaf just a quick step on the lead would probably be enough of a reminder that he has gone too far.

I am hoping to get out for a run tonight if the weather permits...its been raining here for days!

I will look around next time we go to the city.Thanks, our BC is super smart and as long as he see's us he understands hand signals but there is thick bushes along one side of our field and if he goes in there he cant see us to know its time to go.I bet just stepping on the rope would get his attention enough to look around at us.Thanks
