My One Year Old Aussie Won't Come?
I've had my Aussie for almost a year (He is one year and 4 months old now) And I've attended obedience classes with 4H and he comes okay (As in, he comes most of the time...) whenever we are in the backyard, or even on a leash, but whenever I have tried to give him freedom and let him off somewhere like a big field or in the woods, he runs and runs and doesn't even look back or show any intentions of coming back...
Thankfully, the few times he has ran off I either had a treat bag and was barely able to get him to come back with that or had several people and finally caught him. Its not so much that he is being playful; He just seems as if he is like "Oh finally, freedom, so long suckers!" Please I really need help with this, I don't want to have him on the leash all the time and want to give him some freedom...
