Here is one of the things I like to do with the big girls.  We have this great stretch of grass on a ridge that is great for biking.  I love it because I can see all the way to the end about 4/10ths of a mile a way.  I can see if I have the path to myself or if other people and dogs are up there.  It is such a great way to gallop the hounds at an easy pace for a couple of miles.  We have to go down and back a few times, but I reward them with treats at each end so they are motivated to keep going.  It is such a great way to exercise Seven when I am trying to avoid sharp turns.
Remember that Seven is very well trained and very responsive.  If I was not certain of her responsiveness around people, dogs, or the other distractions at this location, I would not have her off leash.  Plus she is a movie star. Ha!
