When is it acceptable to take a dog/puppy off a lead?
Feel this is pretty split in Reddit, so would be good to hear some thoughts.
Me and my partner go to a very quiet spot in an enclosed small field in the evenings for training our puppy. We go at that time as it’s dead quiet, not a soul usually passes through and it’s an area sort of attached to a large park where there are lots of walkers, runners, dog walkers (off lead and on lead).
However some people become extremely angry at dogs off lead, so fellow friends, when is it ok to have a dog off lead in public areas?
Edit: we had a lady yell at us for having our puppy off lead, was extremely unfortunate she passed through while we were training
