SUCCESS!! - and the angels sang a mighty tune! Nico is Off Leash!
This is not important so move on unless you like dogs.
Nico the magnificient AKA Mister Pickles - our trouble dog who I thought would NEVER be an off leash dog - went on a walk today - and half of it was OFF LEASH with no incidents of misbehavior!!!!
This dog was reactive and agressive and wore a muzzle 90% of his outings.
The last year he's gotten so good no muzzle in most circumstances
and today - after a long hot walk by the river - he officially went off leash!!!!
It was pretty deserted, and he had behaved so well on the way out - we experiements and he did fantastic!!!!!
