Fun At The Park

I recently bought the boys a new long line, and I've been using it every morning to play fetch with Fen at the park.  We walk down to the field (with Fen on his regular leash) then put the long line on for some fetching fun!  It's been a great way for me to give him more space to play and explore, without having to worry about him running off or getting into trouble.  Alaskan Klee Kai typically aren't a breed that you can trust off leash, and Fen's recall currently leaves a lot to be desired (we're working on it).

Kit likes the long line too, but mostly because it gives him more area to explore.  Kit's funny - he loves playing fetch in the house, but shows no interest in playing it outdoors.  He has better things to do!

Do you ever use a long line for your dog(s)?  What type of exercise does your dog enjoy most?

    I've got a long line for the beach, never thought about using it for the park. Thanks...

    • Our park has a dog park in it but I've never been a huge fan of dog parks. The fields at our local park are usually pretty deserted so they work really well for putting the dogs on the long line and letting them run around. 🙂

  • What a smart idea! My two are great on recall now, but I could have really used this when I was training them.

    • Kit's recall is awesome. Fen is only 9 months old so he's still a work in progress as far as his training goes. But even Kit I don't let off leash at the park, thanks to leash laws and all that good stuff.
