I've clicked 'sometimes', but actually he gets let off the lead every day, I just have to be careful when. He's a pain with other dogs - if he sees one he's off & I can't get him back! If there's no one around I'll let him off & he chases around like a mad thing, especially if I take his boomer ball. I have to be careful with other dogs cause although he's been socialised he doesn't like all dogs, and it doesn't take much to set him off.

I let Blue off when I can.....normally to play fetch as he needs something other than on lead walking to drain the energy he has.

We let Gizmo off all the time and he is great as long as we have a ball. In fact, he is a joy to take out. Vinnie however is very different and we don't have him off lead as if he gets the scent of something he is gone and he also will run up to other dogs. He is really friendly but others don;t know that.

no never, i have been asked too many times by the local traveller types if i would consider breeding from or selling her i am not willing to take the risk. And i know if something catches he eye she will run and run, her hearing is starting to go. She is ok in enclosed areas but large open spaces i do not think she would hear me calling her back.

Pleased to say that we had both the dogs off lead yesterday when out of no where a big cross breed came bounding over straight up to the dogs. It was a proud moment when Ty completley ignored it and carried on playing with his toy and kaos had a sniff and a tail wag and came staright back to me the second he was called without any fuss!

Not all the time if there is no other dogs around I will let him off but Ty is a little bugger if he sees a dog he likes the look of he is off like a shot. I took him to a huge grassy area over the weekend and let him off as there were no other dogs and the little bugger still ran off after a few times of me calling him he finaly came back but I wont be doing that again! The little man is going to obediance classes in the new year so hopefuly we will get this sorted.

Dempsey's getting better. I have a 'control' distance of around 15' from me to him, and about 50' from him to another dog. As long as we're within the dostances I can either call him back, or tell him to stay & he does.

Buster only gets off lead if there are no dogs around, or if the dogs present are friends of his. He gets too dominant with strange dogs. I have to be very careful, there is a dog around here that Buster hates and would love to get his paws on.

I selected 'sometimes'.

Rocco will come off for a run every day, Dixie will come off if there are no dogs around as will deano, He is going through a weird nervous stage at the moment, so if there are people or other dogs around hegoes back on lead. I'd rather be safe - I don't think h would actually do aything, but a lot of people wouldn't take to kindly to being barked at by a dog!

Post by Bezial on Sun Jan 23 2011, 03:51

Bezial has 4 acres here and is never on a lead but we always have him on the lead in town/city. We let him off at the beach but only if there are NO other dogs or people in the vicinity. Not because he has dog agression, but because he loves everyone and everything and runs off to see them and because he is an amstaff, he scares people. We try to do our bit to get people to see that amstaffs, and staffies (Qi) are NOT bad dogs. Most people go away smiling (and slobbered all over) and realise that most dogs have a degree of aggression and the main culprits are HORRIBLE YAPPY LITTLE DOGS. Sorry about the yelling there people but 9 times out of 10, the dogs that go for Bezial and bark their tails off only come up to his knees and 'mummy and daddy' pick up little fluffy because big bad Bezial is going to kill them....THAT is why we have to keep him on the lead, not because he is going to do anything.

I voted no. Keeping them on lead is the best way to keep them out of trouble. They are not aggressive but with everything going on in the states with pitbulls i just don't want trouble to find them. Not worth it to me.

I selected 'all the time'. I try and make it onto the field everyday so he can have a good run about, but if there is another dog about he's bak on until i know the other dog is friendly. If they are friendly then its all good and they'll have a little play!

I selected Sometimes

Hollie's on the lead walking to the park and back cos of the roads, but then in the park i'll let her off if there are no other dogs about, she's just far too friendly with all dogs but unfortunatly other dogs sometimes get a bit angry with her jumping up at them all the time, once she's been growled at though she comes back to me with her tail between her legs and looks at me as though to say "What did I do, I just wanted to play"...

Mine are let off lead daily at the local fields where I walk them. None of them are DA and they have a good recall. They also go off lead in the countryside as long as there is no livestock around.

i dont let mine off because when I call her she wont come back if another dog is around that wants to play.

Once I let go of the lead by acident and I was chasing her for half an hour because she was playing with another dog.I get nervous she will run on a road if i let her off and stuff ...

Why not try a long line? It's a bit awkward till you're used to it, but you can let her run around but be able to reel her in if she won't come back. You can use it for training as well.

Dempsey is a b**ger for not coming back, but as he's matured (he's nearly 2 now) his 'control distance' has increased. I can now tell him to stay if he sees another dog, as long as it's not too close, and then I can catch him up & put his lead on or just wait for the other dog to go. He still won't actually come back, though, if there's another dog around! That's why I concentrated on getting a good 'stay'!

Staffs are very dominent and will most likely listen to your dad more, its a control thing. But the more she gets used to your voice the better.

Be strict and she will listen to you all, they always listen to who's boss. Good luck

I let Denzl off, but I am not very confident when it comes to other dogs, as he has tried to have a pop at a few. So really don't trust him.

I let Suki off lead all the time. She doesn't have an agression issue because we spent so much time with socialization. I do always closely monitor her activity with other dogs though. If either dog shows aggressive body language I will keep her away.

good boys !!! Smile

I trust Jethro and always let him off.. though he is going deaf abit now so I might have to be more careful..... I let Winston off in certain places as he is still only a puppy and would hate him to take off.... I only let him off his lead when it is safe to do so..

I would NEVER let Jett off the lead again.He just plays deaf and doesn't come back.Not only that but round my area it's rough and i wouldn't want any of the local chavs stealing him and using him for breeding or fighting.

Re: Do you let your dog off lead ?

Post by Amipopzzz on Sun Jul 03 2011, 18:27

Henry is dog aggressive, my other half lets him off and he come back for him, but he last walk before their op a man was running with his Lab bitch and the lab went for a sniff of Missy and Henry had it pinned in seconds.(obviously man with Lab said my dogs shouldnt be off lead, to which i replied neither should yours!)

I want to try a long lead but i was worried if they would be strong enough?? henry is extremely strong!the other thing is Henry has no interest in his treats whilst out walking?

Amy I got 10 Metre Training lead from pets at home.It seems to do the trick.It's strong plus Jett can have fun without running off.

If they can hold my Dempsey (31kilos!) then they're strong enough! Just make sure you get a half decent one.

Are they retracable id love to get one for duke but cant find one strong enough if he saw another dog he sometimes bolts. I use my lunge line at the moment if its good enough for a half ton horse its good enough for me

Gem they're not retractable.I was going to get one of those extendable leads but they were all too thin and flimsy.Its sort of like a lunge line so I doubt you'd want to waste £15-£16 on buying something thats near enough exactly what you already have.

I use a longer lead for Suki on occasions. Usally on a beach or other area I want her to be able to roam without feeling constrained. Espically when I am not yet comforatable with her recall command. I like to keep her within a 20 meter radius so that I can interveine if I feel uncomfortable. I guess it depends on how quickly you can get to the dogs spot and how good they are on recall. I like to give her as much freedom as possible but am very cautious about a negative interaction.
