I had to share with everyone.. I'm so excited and encouraged.

I took Misty to a park we've been training at and..

She was 100% responsive and obedient with all of her commands. Even with other dogs walking a little way away and one close by (a friend brought his Husky along to help with training). I was even able to leave her long leash by my boyfriend, back away about 100 feet and she remained in a STAY. I was able to run up to her/around her, and she held the stay. Even with another dog walking 5 feet away, she stayed. When I gave her release command, she came straight to me at full speed. I was absolutely amazed.

She came to me every time I called, even when engaged in play with another dog. I still don't think I'd be comfortable having her off leash (it's not a dog park, and I don't think our training's THAT far), but she was essentially "off leash" when in her stays and during recall practice.

I am incredibly proud of her and just had to share. :D

Congratulations! Not only should you be proud of her but of yourself as well. Dogs dont train themselves, it takes alot of work and consistency. Great job!

Thank you very much! I was actually able to have her off leash in an off-leash permitting park yesterday evening without any incidents of her disobeying or running too far. She stayed with me the entire time and obeyed commands immediately. Everything seems to be progressing so smoothly.. I'm so pleased.
