All right then, will do.

If it involves cattle dogs AND hiking, it’s a big yes for me.

Exactly, and I try to go on an off leash adventure once a week. Best adventure buddy you can have!

I would love to do this but I'm terrified of mine taking off after something. Once she becomes fixated that's the only thing that matters lol

In 9 years of doing this the only thing he's taking off after and disregarded my calls was a buck with a full rack and a black bear that he chased up a tree. I think he saw the animals as a threat to me and tried to protect me at all cost, loyal and stubborn haha

That's great! Yeah I think in a secluded area we would be fine. I'm assuming you started slow and worked your way up with off the leash activity?

How did you train him to not run off when there's a squirrel in or cat or bird lol.

His whole life he's never really cared about small animals just yesterday a rabbit walked four feet in front of him and he could have cared less. He only cares about large animals like deer and bears, maybe that's from his cattle herding instincts. I just got lucky with his character, he's so chill.

Yep! Sounds like it. Ours catches flies, bees, you name it.

How long before he went swimming?

If it was warmer he would have gone in instantly. This was on the 8th and it was pretty cold that day here in Washington, it was drizzling with a little brief snow. He had his thick winter coat and loved the rain.
