I let Willow and Frio off lead three separate times today, and each time they were quite responsive to my commands. Willow listens really well, and comes when I call or whistle; of course I was glad they were on lead when a single jackrabbit burst across the desert just in front of us. The Heelers were raring to go.
Two hours later we returned to Whitey the CR-V for the short drive home.
