If Brody would come back in 2 minutes I'd let him off too. Wish he understood that. His interpretation of excursion time is far greater, or at least it was when we tried years ago.
Contour is young and he's a boy. In that context, two minutes is pretty good but it's still plenty of time to get into trouble! I think he'll end up being a great off-leash dog eventually.
I may try a run with hot dog bits as lures to keep him closer to a 30 second rule. The bugger probably has a secret plan to nudge me up to prime rib.
Maybe a run with me and goose????
oh yes, that would be super fun! Goose can show Cowboy Pups how to behave!
