Hi everyone! We have a nearly 5 month old boy called Monty. We've been letting him off the lead for a few weeks now at our local park and some smaller local beaches, more enclosed places where we know he's not likely to do a runner! He tends to just toddle along, have a splash in the sea and say hello to the other dogs. He doesn't really go very far from me at all. We have a larger local dog beach 5 minutes from us which is not enclosed but we're not sure when is best to let him off there. It's quite big and and sometimes has more dogs than people! Would it be better to let him off here sooner rather than later? Also, would it be a good idea to let him off with the family dogs he knows already the first time we try it? I feel awful taking him down there and having to keep him on the lead when all the other pups are off having fun!
