Yesterday was the first time that I took Zig along on a field run with the girls. I was actually surprised at how clingy he was at first, but the longer we were out, the further out he would venture. He was a little concerned at first by the grass that was taller than him and the sticky bushes he kept getting tangled in, but learned very quickly how to charge through everything. While Zig's recall has gotten more reliable, I decided to put the collar on him as a safety precaution. My Weims tend to range pretty far out when hunting or on walks and I wanted to make sure I could still have control over Zig if he decided to follow.
