Just seen this on facebook, someone training their dog to walk whilst not holding the lead? Maybe I'm being a bit thick but why don't you want to hold the lead? Isnt it dangerous not having him held by the lead? Like · Reply · 13 minsEdit Lauren Wick Not dangerous if you have trust and have trained your dog properly. You must have seen dogs that can walk by their owner not being on the lead? That's what I want for Roscoe. I know the situations in which it wouldn't be safe to do this but I love love love training and for me I'm training him to work his mind and most importantly to be safe around the road.
