OffLeash Fun With Dogs! What Freedom Really Means?

All dogs need exercise, but they also need offleash playtime and freedom.

 

OffLeash Tips For Your Dog

 

  • Your dog needs to understand the “come command” before you can let him go off the leash and expect him to come back when called.
  • Train your puppy at the dog park, provided it’s safe.
  • Used only the fenced-in areas until Fido understands the “come “command.
  • Letting your dog run off leash at least a couple of times a week helps him to de-stress and keep him fit.
  • He can enjoy the dog park at his own pace and possibly make some good friends.
  • Offleash serves well to let your dog exercise aerobically.
  • Running and playing with other dogs when off leash burns off plenty of calories and keeps your dog fit.
  • He’ll be a much happier dog around the house and around other people and dogs.
