Training lines, also known as long lines or leads, are incredibly useful in puppy and dog training for several reasons:

Safety and control: Training lines allow you to maintain control over your dog while providing them with more freedom to sniff and explore. This is especially important in situations where you need to keep your dog safe, such as near roads or in areas with distractions.

Reinforcement of recall:  Long lines are excellent tools for reinforcing your recall cue and allow you to play recall games with your dog in distracting environment safely.  

Gradual transition to off-leash training:  Training lines act as a transitional phase between on-leash and off-leash training. They allow dogs to experience some freedom while still being physically connected to you, helping them get used to off-leash behaviour in a controlled manner.

Building confidence:   Training lines can help build a dog's confidence in new or potentially intimidating environments. Dogs can explore and experience different situations while still being under the your guidance.

Preventing reinforcement of unwanted behaviours:  Training lines help prevent dogs from self-reinforcing undesirable behaviours, such as chasing wildlife or running away. This is crucial for discouraging unwanted habits while training more desirable behaviours such recall or orientation to you.

Safety in open spaces:   In open or unfenced areas, training lines offer a safety net. They prevent dogs from running off or getting into potentially dangerous situations, giving you peace of mind.

In summary, training lines are valuable tools in dog training because they provide a balance between freedom and control, making them useful in various training scenarios while ensuring the safety of your canine companion.
