Would you make your wife run beside you on a leash (vice versa)?
Would you feed your wife dog food or raw meat? Would you expect your wife to sit on the floor when you told her to? Does your wife chase squirrels? Is your wife a dog? No, then why treat your dog like your wife?

I ride with my dog all the time and it is usually the best part of my day and I know it is for him. Sometimes we use a leash, sometimes not. I always let him set the pace and he knows to stay to my right. This is just around my fairly rural neighborhood though, not near much traffic at all.

My goal is to have her accompany me off-leash. Any further suggestions? Also, how many miles would you say is too far for a young adult Dalmatian in good shape? (About a third of the time she'd be walking, because I'd be going up hill. Interspersed with that would be running or trotting, as I ride on a level road or coast down a hill with some braking to match her top speed [if she seems to have energy for it]. She'd be running on dirt/grass with occasional gravel.) Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge!
The best way to train your dog is using a dog runs that help you to train your dog easily without escaping anywhere then you can easily take your dog to the road

A 14 year old thread lives on, and a post from nine years ago gets a response in a bump.
