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.

If you're having to ask then it's not time. There's dogs that you just know won't take off, in my experience it's when they are about 8 years old 🤣
I keep an Ecollar on my dogs for added security after losing my Pit Bull after she chased a pronghorn far into the desert, I won't make that mistake twice.
