|Kalisi's puppyhood was pretty chill, we kept the door to our unfenced front porch propped open at all times and didn't walk her with a leash for about about a month, in various environments, because she was still too tentative to wander far. I still take every chance to train, and most of our walks are off leash unless we're near sheep, cattle, or it's hunting season. She waits for cars to pass, and waits for me to put her leash on if she meets someone on the road, and in crowded places she offers heel.
I continually reinforce her for sticking close, both off and on leash, and eventually I intend to slap a "dont roam" command on. She's fairly trustworthy...for now..
A lot of it is definitely in her breed, but it's nice to see when we're 15 people walking 10 off leash dogs and she keeps running back and forth to check on me.
