The good news is Xena is doing better than I thought.  I have been working with her on recall in the front yard and she is doing great so far. Happy Yell  I am pleasantly surprised since I have been doing it when I have the chance, not every day. 
I have been working with her off leash in the front yard, with the lunge line she does not try anything I think it is too heavy since it is for horses. thud
Yesterday she tried to jump when I went out the gate, I came back in, and she came right back to me when I called her.  She tried it one more time when I went out the gate and ran right to me when I came back in. clapping 
The part that scares me now to work with her outside the fence of securtiy.  I am not sure how to keep her secure and give her the idea to come back when I call her outside the fence.  Any suggestions? huh?  I am thinking of the retractable leash, or a rope, but I am not sure if there is something that is less noticable to her and still sturdy.

Good news.  Happy Yell Keep it up. 

 They make a super long lead just for training purposes. Most are cotton and average about 25ft long. Here is a link to one.

Thank you Layne.  Where is the link?  Did those running turkeys take off with it? Grin

you can buy a 20 or 30 ft lead at pretty much any pet store. THey are by the rest of the leashes. They usually are all wrapped up so they are a flat circle in a plastic bag. Sometimes you can walk right by them.

Cool thanks!  I am subscribed to Fosters and Smith website, so I will check it out.

Walking right by them I have done a million times.  I always go to the leash section when I go to a pet store to check out any new collar styles that I cannot live without.  I have noticed leashes, but not any longer than 6 feet that I know of, they are usually hanging up.  I guess I have to pay more attention.

You can also get a cotton clothes line. It's super light and cheap!! Thats what I use mostly. I made a knot in one end and attach it to a caribeaner which a wrap around my waist for the lighter dogs and hang on tight for the larger dogs.

That's a good idea, thanks Hill. 
Xena has done so much better.  I am proud of her.   I have been able to catch her before she jumps which has helped a lot.  One time when she did jump, my truck door was open, she jumped out of the yard and went into the truck. rotfl  I had to give her a ride. 
I have not worked with her as much with horse racing season.  It is funny, cuz now that I am not working with her as much she is in to a lot more trouble, she counter surfs more, gets into the garbage MORE and chases the cats MORE.  When I was doing something with her she was better behaved all the way around.  She really needs a job.
