I'm a paranoid dog mom

My dog listens fine on a dragging lead. I tried removing it once before, but reliability decreased, so I put it back on, and have been doing some focused "off-leash" reliability training. How do you know when your dog is ready to have it removed? All our fencing is barbed wire for the cows, (except for the goat field, and I don't trust the billy with her lol) so I can't put her in a big fenced area to test it.

Yep I second BKaymuttleycrew. For the dogs under my care, "off leash" is simply dragging a long line. Have you tried to clip on a traffic handle to mimic the effect of her dragging a leash? I've heard that working for some other dogs.
