Very wise, Linda!
About 40 years ago, my area was barely developed; it was mostly forest, with a long beach in the distance. Once I'd taught my dogs reliable recalls (they were quite good at it); I could let them off-leash to explore some They were back, reliably, in ten minutes. But - any longer, and I'd have to go searching for them.
One time my Australian Terrier male, Kumbi, got hung up with a sapling stuck through his snug body harness; I had to cut him out with a knife. He wouldn't talk to me when trapped - probably, instinctive survival mechanism; I had to get my other dog, Kwali, to help me find him
But Camellia - she will never be offleash outside a completely secure enclosed area. Havanese are FAST! Maybe it's just because I'm now 40 years older, but she seems faster to me even than Australian Terriers!
