Wow! LOL! Same with Diego, he has a hard time listening when squirrels and anything small/moving run past. I'm pretty sure if he saw a deer I'd have to let the leash go...
I feel better about taking him to a park nearby, just put a long lead on and follow wherever his nose takes me. Ginger can't roam off leash because of the rules there. I need to search for off leash areas... we don't have much here.

There are a lot of places here that you can't have them off leash, but I like to find secluded area's most of the time off the beaten path that will take me to ponds, or open area's that I can just let him go to be a dog. There's this one area I like, it's right on the river a beautiful beach that no one knows about, there is never anyone there. I'm sure there are leash rules for that area because it is off the trans Canada trail, but I use my judgement. If there's no one there to offend and only I know about it, why not!

True. I hate having to keep my dogs on a leash all the time. As we have a small yard, so the only off leash time Ginger can have is in our front yard... and occasionally in the neighbor's when they aren't home.
