I think the general rule of thumb is not to let your beag off leash. They are ruled by their noses, and will follow a scent without noticing where it leads them. It's not that they intend to run away, I think, just that they are very single-minded when on a scent. I've only within the past year begun dropping Shiloh's leash when she's in our yard, but I stay with her. On walks I always have her on leash. But each dog is different--sounds like June may be an exception to the rule! Do you have any pictures of her?
