    Default Great Weekend

    Had such a great weekend with Bunk! We went to this park about two miles away from our house and had a blast!.
    The best part was that we were able to let Bunk off his leash for the first time in an open area and had did soooooo well :)
    He didn't wander too far from us and he came to us when we called for him.
    I think we'll be going back to this park regularly, hopefully allow Bunk more boundaries.
    We also got a bunch of great pics and some funny videos, which I will share with everyone once I get them one the computer!

    I'm glad you had a good time!!!

    You're braver than I am!!!! My guys are always on leashes. Except for Kelev at times...as he's old and won't go far from me!

    Looking forward to the pics!

    Yeah I made sure to take him somewhere safe.
    A few weeks ago I would have never taken him off the lease, but one I took him to a large grass area in our apartment complex using two really long leashes (I wanted him to run around, but was afraid to leave him unrestrained) and he din't go anywhere. It was funny because I totally thought he would try to run as far away as he could, but he just stuck around and didn't wander too far.
    There were a few other times where I would take him off his leash outside our apartment (which is on the third floor) and he would only move when I moved.
    So call it codependency or whatever, but I'm so thrilled that we will be able to do this more often.

    FYI I have the funniest video of him drinking water from a water faucet -it's hilarious. I'll be sure to share it ASAP!

    I am glad to hear your report... and submit a small warning... he MIGHT get braver the more he is let off lead.. so please work on your recall (make it a game with bits of kibble in little bowls up high around the apartment (when he's not looking)... so if you manage to get into a room where he is not, you can give him the command you want to use all the time, and then reward his coming to find you!

    And then, of course, seek safe places to work on his recall more... and don't play "chase" if you can avoid it, ever... in fact, better to encourage him to chase you if you run away (i.e. when he is coming in response to your command)...

    We love BUNK and don't want anything bad to happen to him! And we await the pictures!
